Lesson Ideas for Teachers

HomeResourcesLesson Ideas

Lesson plans to help teachers guide their students through the Learning Pit®.

We have a team of in-house writers led by our Co-Director, Jill Nottingham. Together, they write lesson plans to help teachers guide their students through the Learning Pit®.

On this page, you will find lesson ideas and resources suitable for teachers to use with students aged 3-19. Alternatively, you might prefer to access our Home Learning resources.

At the bottom of the page, you will also find Activity Cards connected with three of our books:

  • Challenging Learning Through Dialogue (2016);
  • Learning Challenge Lessons: Primary (2018);
  • Learning Challenge Lessons: Secondary ELA (2019)
