Resources for helping with planning aka Survival 101


1) Using Teaching as Inquiry to Support Secondary English Programme Planning


Planning Using Inquiry  - English Online - an interactive tool created by MoE and English Online. Steps you through using a Teaching as Inquiry framework to guide your programme planning. Includes questions you should ask yourself before planning your programme, plus lots of supporting research, reading and viewing.
