How to engage students who have learning difficulties* and keep them interested.

* The course will particularly reference working with students who have learning difficulties but is also relevant to non-disabled students

For the first time in five years, Christopher Davies, Artistic Director of Bamboozle, is teaching the Bamboozle approach through open courses. Below are details of this two-part course, but first here’s what one teacher from a Luton school says:
“We’ve been using the Bamboozle Approach for nearly a year now. I’ve got a couple of kids in my class who, by the end of the spring term, had almost done three sub-levels and that’s huge, that’s absolutely huge”.

Of another pupil, she said that the Bamboozle Approach has “impacted on his ability to make relationships with people, he’s more assertive, he’s more engaged, he’s more vocal, he’s refusing less… there’s that depth of relationship happening”.

The Bamboozle Approach Part One: Wednesday 1st November 2017, 10:00 – 17:00, Leicester.
