Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Staff: Kagan Structures

24 November 2017

Mr. Rinaldi led a practical workshop on new Kagan Structures.

 Staff from Primary and Secondary School took part in a range of Kagan activities, including 'Team, Pair Solo', 'Match Mine', 'Spend A Buck', 'Show Down' and 'Talking Chips'. 

'Kagan Structures are instructional strategies designed to promote cooperation and communication in the classroom, boost students' confidence and retain their interest in classroom interaction. The Structures work in all teaching contexts—regardless of subject, age group, and number of students in class—and are a particularly powerful tool for teaching a foreign language.'

We look forward to seeing children using these structures in their lessons and working collaboratively.
