ii Unpick the learning outcome

Learning outcomes for each lesson should be relevant and manageable. Unpicking learning outcomes creates disparate strands which will need to be taught discretely.

  • Tim Oates

One or more strands may be taught in a lesson but the strands will not necessarily link or build on from each other.

Once a learning outcome has been split, the levels of understanding towards students achieving mastery can be evaluated. This process aligns with a ‘teach depth as well as breadth’ philosophy. There are several structures which support this layered understanding such as P E² A, Bloom’s Taxonomy and Webb’s Depths of Knowledge (See Appendix 1, 2 & 3)

The National Curriculum should focus on ‘fewer things in greater depth’, in secure learning which persists, rather than relentless, over-rapid progression…Mastery learning breaks subject matter and learning content into units with clearly specified objectives which are pursued until they are achieved. Learners work through each block of content in a series of sequential steps. Tim Oates, Cambridge Assessment
