 For 2016-2017 NEPS and the Association of Teachers’/  Education Centres in Ireland have embarked on an exciting collaboration to provide training courses for teachers who would like to develop their practice in the teaching of literacy skills in the Early Years.

As part of the National Literacy Strategy, NEPS have developed a new on-line resource for use by teachers in Irish primary schools.

The Balanced Approach to Literacy Development in the Early Years draws on international research, evidence based practice and samples of that practice in Irish primary schools to give a coherent and comprehensive guide to teachers. It is also aligned with the new Primary Language Curriculum.

This is a resource that can be used by class teachers working with children from Junior Infants to First Class. It may also be helpful to schools who have identified the need to improve reading standards as part of the school-self-evaluation process.   Some schools may also like to use the resource to support the work of a professional learning community focusing on literacy.

This resource contains:

Suggestions for developing practice

Supporting resources and materials

32 short video clips of best practice in action showing teachers and children in Irish classrooms

Summary of research evidence practice in action

A one day course aimed at Junior Certificate Mathematics Teachers who wish to engage with the solving of problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts.

This is a follow up to Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 1 delivered in Kildare Education Centre on Saturday 14 October 2017. However attendance at Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 1 is not a prerequisite for attendance at Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 2.

The Junior Certificate Mathematics Syllabus for examination from 2016 contains a section in each of the five strands entitled “Synthesis and Problem Solving Skills.” One of the learning outcomes in this section states that students should be able to “Apply their Knowledge and Skills to Solve Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts.”

This one day course aims at providing teachers of Junior Certificate Mathematics with a bank of questions which will aid them in achieving this goal.

The questions provided:

Ø  Range across the five strands of the Junior Certificate Syllabus.

Ø  Range across the three years of the Junior Certificate Cycle.

Ø  Allow students engage in tasks for which the solutions are not immediately obvious.

Ø  Are suitable for a wide range of abilities.

Ø  Can be scaffolded to cater for differentiated learning.

Ø  Can be solved by a variety of approaches and methods.

Ø  Link material from a number of strands.

Ø  Can be used to introduce and develop other concepts.

There will be ample opportunity for participants to engage with the material by working through examples and discussing the solutions and there will be full worked solutions to many of the examples.

 A PDF version of the presentation will be made available to all participants via email on completion of the course.
