Abstract

The aim of the Developing best practice in mixed attainment English project was threefold: To develop research-informed practice in secondary school English teaching, drawing on the award-winning project Best Practice in Mixed Attainment • To create resources for use by and inspiration of English teachers to support mixed attainment teaching at Key Stage 3 • To strengthen the resources available to English teachers to argue in favour of evidence-based mixed attainment teaching practice. In this resource we start by reviewing the research evidence context regarding mixed attainment grouping. We then offer some exercises for reflection, alongside student perspectives from the Best Practice in Grouping Students project. We describe the collaborative process that teachers who participated in the initial work engaged with and present a set of principles that emerged from our discussions. Finally we offer annotated lesson materials, created and developed by participating teachers over the course of the project. We hope that these will provoke and encourage thoughtful engagement with the development of mixed attainment teaching in English. Accompanying this resource is a short film illustrating and reflecting on mixed attainment teaching practice. The film presents mixed attainment English teaching in action at one of our participating schools. We see excerpts from a Year 8 lesson and hear reflections on pedagogy from teachers and students.
