    Imagine Maths Lesson. What is the
    name given to the process/ type of teaching whereby you have for example all
    the children on the carpet for the whole class teaching input, except the
    Higher Ability (who are for example playing a game aimed at their level at a
    table away from the rest of the class), you teach the new concept/new
    strategies for some area of mathematics, to the rest of the class. You then
    send off the Least Able children to do their task, while (keeping on the carpet
    and) teaching the MA the next part with say higher numbers or more in-depth
    problems, then send them off to do their task, then call to the carpet the HA
    children for their higher level teacher input, then send them off to do the new
    task based on this lesson&rsquo;s learning.</font>

    All help much appreciated.</font><font size="3">

    You are writing that in your personal statement? Really?

    Maybe pop over to jobseekers and post it as you have here. Then ask for advice of how to write about it in your letter. Mentioning a random name of a teaching style won't be much use if no-one knows what you are on about. And writing as you have here is a bit muddled.

    Theo on jobseekers knows everything!
  9. It does sound like hard wok!
    It is differentiation but by teacher input and task not just outcome.
    For a job application I would just write a simple sentence e.g. I am able to plan/differentiate to ensure the highest possible challenge and progress for all pupils.

  10. had a obs today by borough lady and was told that that is what I should have done :0/
    the new 'in' thing
  11. Myyear group partner does this with her maths set. It works well for her, but she has a TA as well, to 'manage' the independent groups while she is teaching another. We just call it 'carousel style', but that's not anything official. We recognise it to be differentiation by input, support and task.
    I would also question why you need to include a name for it in a job application.

    I agree ... if called for interview I expect this would be a question they would ask.

  13. But surely it's better to say at application stage, that you make extensive use of differentiation to enhance your maths teaching, rather than go into too much detail.
    They should question about exactly how you differentiate during your interview (assuming you get one!) Have they asked on the job spec, that you describe how you differentiate?

    It's even older than that as I have taught this way over 20 years ago.

    Was it just as bonkers back then?

    People don't actually do this every lesson do they?
  17. my colleague pretty much does. How do you do it otherwise?
