Research Findings: Executive Summary 2

Findings from our second round of data collection and analysis are now available. In this round, we continued classroom observations and engaged teachers in focus groups to discuss the Knowledge Rich Curriculum (KRC).

The focus groups were set around findings from Executive Summary 1, and included questions relating to:

  • Role of English and Maths in the KRC,
  • Type of professional development needed to sustain the implementation of KRC,
  • Role of high quality text in the KRC,
  • Ways to support TAs in the implementation of the KRC.

Executive Summary 2 offers findings related to these questions and potential next steps for the school to take in implementing the KRC.
