Developing pedagogical tools for intervention: Approach, methodology, and an experimental framework

An article by Wright, Ellemor-Collins and Lewis, describing research to develop instructional materials and approaches with low-attaining pupils in the Australian context, drawing on the Maths Recovery principles, frameworks and activities.

This paper reports on a project aimed at developing pedagogical tools for intervention in the number learning of low-attaining 3rd- and 4th-graders. Approaches to instructional design and intervention are described, and the use of the design research methodology is outlined. A major outcome of the project – an experimental framework for instruction is described. The framework consists of five aspects: number words and numerals, structuring numbers to 20, conceptual place value, addition and subtraction to 100, and early multiplication and division. The descriptions of aspects include a discussion of low-attaining students’ knowledge and difficulties, and details of instructional approaches developed in the project.

Thank you to @Collab_LR and @NAMA_UK for a great #cpdsaturday with @watanabeKSU exploring #TTP. Rich discussion face to face for a change… @geoffwake1 @RuthTrundley @mattlewis73 @AccomplishEdu @ProfSmudge @mikeaskew26

Treat your class to some lovely new puppets - THEY’RE CURRENTLY HALF PRICE!

Puppets are great learning resources, use them to:

🌟Bring your story telling to life
🌟Help children with counting
🌟Help children to understand school expectations and reinforce behaviour policies

1. Use 7,3 to make 2-dig numbers. Find the diff. between them. M

2. Try 6,2. What do you notice?

3. Try some more. Reorganise the results.

4. What’s changing, what’s stays the same? Why?
