Description

Teachers embedded retrieval practise in the form of quizzes and specific opportunities planned for children to demonstrate what they know on a regular basis. The keystone between teaching, learning and the curriculum, Pupil Book Study offers schools the tools to explain why things are as they are and presents solutions to the areas that limit or hinder progress.

Pupil Book Study gives headteachers, senior and middle leaders a systematic toolkit to evaluate the impact of the curriculum through studying teaching and learning. Practitioners are accomplished in delivering and securing knowledge rich learning and retrieval amongst pupils; Pupil Book Study gives headteachers, senior and middle leaders a systematic toolkit to evaluate the impact of the curriculum through studying teaching and learning. Infused with cognitive science research and evidence-informed practice, it offers schools the architecture for excellence; helping remove the risk of making assumptions. A whole school approach to modelling writing was applied – using discourse markers to sequence ideas, applying tier 2 and 3 vocabulary appropriately; using a variety of sentence openers for effect. Pupils were given structured opportunities to analyse, define, connect and use words in context. Teachers focused on using and displaying Tier 2 (multiple meaning or high frequency) and Tier 3 (subject specific vocabulary) within vocabulary organisers in books. Explicit vocabulary instruction was embedded in all lessons and assessment focused on evidence of this in pupils’ written and spoken outcomes.Pupil Book Study is a window into the ‘lived experience’ of pupils, as opposed to just the observed experience. A Point of Delivery provides lesson plan outlines to help teach the what and the how of the learning module. High quality teacher videos provide support for technical skills and exemplification of the process and outcomes. Pupil Book Study is a guide for schools that offers 7 specific and fully exemplified areas to focus quality assurance systems. CUSP is guided by evidence-led curriculum structures, such as retrieval, spaced retrieval practice and interleaving. It is underpinned by explicit vocabulary instruction and research-focused pedagogy. Combining these has led to exceptional outcomes for pupils, as a result of coherent curriculum design and instructional teaching. It also gives you, as school leaders, consistency and expectations. CUSP is unapologetically ambitious – it will not only improve outcomes for pupils, but also teacher subject knowledge.

Pupil Book Study is a window into the ‘lived experience’ of pupils, as opposed to just the observed experience. It is also a mirror in which to reflect professional practice and identify what helps learning, and what hinders it by outlining clear and coherent structures in which to talk with pupils and look at their books.

Summary

Infused with cognitive science research and evidence-informed practice, it offers schools the architecture for excellence; helping remove the risk of making assumptions. Practitioners are more skilled in using and applying evidence-informed practice to improve day to day classroom practice;

The primary goal of our project is to better understand the pattern of pupil learning, particularly amongst vulnerable groups, and in doing so improve pupil outcomes. Targeted professional development and improved practice and systems will support the delivery of these improved outcomes.Improve the quality of teaching and learning through research-informed dialogic practice alongside robust evaluation utilising pupils and their books. With more than 29 years of experience in education as a teacher, headteacher and leading adviser for school improvement, Alex Bedford now supports Unity Schools Partnership and its Research School, working across the UK and abroad. Alex is the creator and author of the highly acclaimed Pupil Book Study series (originally published in 2021) and has worked as an associate consultant for the Institute of Education, UCL. His curriculum writing and resources have been highly praised by Professor Rob Coe and by Clare Sealy (head of education improvement, Guernsey). Unity Research School is not a physical school as such, rather a team of experienced educationalists, passionate about education research and the evidence-informed strategies it provides. We are part of the larger Research Schools Network and are supported by the practices of the EEF. Pupil Book Study: Reading’ provides evidence-led structures to shine a light on the true impact of a school’s reading provision. Building on the global success of the original Pupil Book Study frameworks, this guide translates these principles into practice to support leaders and teachers to evaluate their reading curriculum. Schools report that Pupil Book Study has been some of the most powerful and impactful work they have ever undertaken, resulting in positive change. In November 2020, Pupil Book Study was shared with the Deputy Director, Senior HMI and Policy makers at Ofsted.
