Teach to the Top

Teach to the Top is the idea that teaching should ensure that the learning is genuinely challenging (and that all students are supported in reaching the top)

Megan Mansworth's Teach to the Top

Chapter 2: Embedding Challenge Across the Curriculum: ideology and mindset

Mansworth focuses on curriculum design and planning: which concepts, ideas and knowledge are prioritised. She emphasises that the content that is chosen is ideological (also the purpose of the subject). She advises that a collective mindset of challenge is developed (she draws on Hattie who ranked collective efficacy as the top factor that influences student achievement)
