March Webinar

Kathleen Graves will be presenting our next webinar on Saturday 14th March at 4pm GMT with a session entitled: Supporting teachers who use textbooks to ‘think curricularly’. 

In this webinar we will explore how to help teachers who use a required textbook to ‘think curricularly’—to understand the dynamic relationship between lessons, units, and the wider curriculum, and the central role they play in making curriculum decisions on a daily basis. 

If you’d like to join us, there is no need to register. Just sign into our TTEdSIG webinar room as a guest on the day. Here’s the link: TTEd Webinar Room
