I have recently accepted an action research project to look at Stretch and Challenge within teaching and learning at DHSB. Starting projects such as these are always the most difficult part, so here goes.
I am the stage where I have no significant prior knowledge, or expectations just a lot of questions to be answered. I anticipate hard work, dead ends and many problems to solve, however at the end I hope that I have clarity about stretch and challenge at DHSB which I am able to share.
The following questions are my starting point:
- What is stretch and challenge?
- Why stretch and challenge at DHSB?
- Do staff use stretch and challenge and is it effective?
I will be canvassing staff for information and perhaps participation, I am also interested to hear what people are doing outside of here so look out for the opportunity to get involved in a project which can stretch and challenge you too.
