Weekly Planning Examples

Examples of weekly planning

The documents on this page are examples of my planning from the Autumn of 2002. They represent the kind of planning I was doing at the time as part of an action research project, they reflect both my early understanding of the approach and the planning requirements of my school in 2002.

They are not meant to represent an orthodoxy and we strongly recommend that teachers use planning formats that work best for them. You are welcome to alter and adapt them in any way you feel appropriate.

We hope to add more examples of weekly planning to this part of the site in future and welcome contributions, especially from teachers who are new to the approach and looking to make changes to their own practice and the practices of their schools. Tim Taylor

    Dear Tim
    how are you, hope all is well.
    i was thinking of possibilities of doing a one-lesson MOE??
    if yes, what suggestions do you have?
    PS. I’m focusing on writing skill in English as a second language.
    Thanx a lot.

    Hi Amira
    Good to hear from you. I would suggest taking a look at Mountain Rescue. We wrote this context as a one off lesson I taught around Norfolk after school to groups of children. It’ll work well as a one day context.
    I’m sure you will find many opportunities for children to write.
    Let me know how it goes if you end up using it.
    Best wishes

    Hi Tim,

    I am designing an MoE approach for my project report module within my BA Educational Studies degree.

    I am planning an activity focusing on charity work within African schools to enhance children’s understanding of international education in less developed countries.

    I was just looking for some guidance in planning my activity.

    Best Wishes

    Hi Sam

    Take a look at the planning sheets here: http://www.mantleoftheexpert.com/about-moe/resources/planning-templates/

    My advice would be to start where ever an idea presents itself. It might be the expert team, the client or the situation.

    A lot depends on the age of the children (I’m asuming upper junior, Yr5 or 6), the country in West Africa and the curriculum you want the children to study.

    Lets imagine:
    1. A class of difficult to engage Yr.6
    2. A curriculum where you want the children to learn about some of the economic and political difficulties facing people in West Africa, without being patronizing

    A possible context might be:
    1. A team of engineers working for a charity that funds projects designed to improve infrastructure in West Africa – roads, railways, bridges, airports etc
    2. As part of their work the team:
    i) Study maps of the region
    ii) Make plans
    iii) Correspond with their West African compatriots
    iv) Plan to travel to West Africa – looking at the risks, the opportunities etc.
    v) Travel to West Africa – communicate with people and organisations
    vi) Tackle various problems – geographical, engineering, political etc
