What does LT Planning in a collaborative learning space look like...

Kia Ora,

I've been searching, thinking and discussing with some of my Colleagues Long term planning for reading, writing and maths...

We currently have 5 teachers in our year7/8 team using student data to drive teaching programmes. By this I mean analysing what students need, offering workshops on a 2 -4 week cycle (all referenced to LIs and SC) and students sign up based on their own analysis of their assessments ( all based on NZC of course!). Planning is very collaborative and I feel, meeting the individual needs of our students. This of course changes based on whether a student grasps the concept or not, students and teachers make this decision together (where possible).

So my question that I would like your help with is... does LT planning have a place in this environment? And if so how does it fit- without planning overload?

Has anyone out there mastered this? Have advice/ideas about it? Or trialling formats that they are willing to share?

Thanks in advance!

Carly

    In these times of focusing on individual pathways and student led inquiry, it can be difficult to plan ahead, so what we have found helpful in our school is to closely monitor where we have been rather than dictate where we want to go. We make sure that we meet the needs of the curriculum this way and we can alter the direction of our focus if we need to. Our students are constantly monitoring their own progress which means that they often set the goals and direction of their own learning.
