Great to see you here! Welcome to the newly launched (ready for 2020-21 academic year) website for Teaching and Learning at Mountain Ash Comprehensive School, http://www.macstandl.com.
The site collates key CPD and staff training activities, discussions and contributions, such as the work on what do ‘Great Teachers’ and ‘Great Teaching’ look like, during INSET and Twilight session of 2019-20, through to documenting and explaining school approaches to Teaching and Learning such as the CPD Model so that staff have easy access to it, in order to plan for and inform their own development and improvement priorities.
Resources and strategies for teaching and learning…
A key area of the site in particular, linked to the discussions around great teaching, is the Six Principles page. This explains the foundations and approaches taken at MACS and how the key ideas feed into activities around Teaching and Learning across the school. From there you will find a host of section pages with resources, materials and ideas to prompt discussion on:
In addition the website also has an area presenting all of the books and titles available as part of the MACS CPD Library. You can browse through a list of what we have available from the comfort of your device, and instructions are provided for how to request and reserve a book.
We hope you find the online resource useful, and if you have any thoughts, ideas or contributions for content then please do not hesitate to let us know!
