Looking for #edutwitter help here - Doing part of a CPD session in school tomorrow on 'Challenge' - to me challenge is intrinsically linked to the curriculum rather than a task-based approach which seems an artificial way of increasing challenge.
Essentially if the curriculum in a subject isn't rich and complex, I don't believe doing specific types of 'tasks' (e.g. prioritise these things into an order of importance, or summarise it into 10 words) will make it much more challenging? That approach seems short-termist.
To me challenge is all about giving students access to the full story (e.g. of the Crusades as an example I'm looking at sharing) and building up their hinterland to be able to access it (e.g. What is Islam, why is Jerusalem important, where did the Byzantine Empire come from)
and then expecting students to remember as much of it as possible and be to be able to write about it with some degree of fluency (in History anyway). @bennewmark @Counsell_C @mfordhamhistory @apf102 @teacherhead @EnserMark @FunkyPedagogy please RT - am I getting this wrong?
At the very least I'm not sure how to turn this into 20 minutes of a CPD workshop that wouldn't be just me lecturing staff about how we're improving our History curriculum that might not be too relevant if you teach DT or Science!
