High performance is an attainable target for everyone. #everyonecan
We can systematically teach students how to be ‘intelligent’ and how to succeed in school and life.
We need to develop, methodically, the cognitive competencies associated with cognitive success and make them the DNA of our teaching.
There are 30 generic competencies students need to develop and these can be grouped into 8 sets across 5 levels from novice to expert. The more competent students are in each of these the better they will do.
Although these are generic competencies they are best developed through subjects.
This is a teacher agenda. It happens in the classroom in the hands of a skilled teacher. It is not a one-size-fits-all ‘programme’ to be followed.
Hence schools need to foster a professional community of practice among their educators – no quick-fix, governance model, instructional technique or technology can substitute for this.
