Better planning: better teaching, better learning [a template]

How can we plan better?  The advent of the knowledge organiser has challenged us to think more carefully about exactly what we hope students will learn from a unit of work.  I think we can build on this: having specified what we want students to learn, we can think equally carefully about the knowledge we will use in teaching them.  Grounded in Deborah Ball’s research on pedagogical content knowledge, this post proposes a template to capture the preparatory thinking needed to teach effectively – and to share the wisdom of practice efficiently.
