Some local history
.
 Islam in RE: Religious Literacy & Controversy Through Enquiry  has been developed here in Norfolk and the first pilot was run at the School of Education and Lifelong Learning at the University of East Anglia in June 2014, attended by Secondary School teachers, academic researchers and members of Norfolk SACRE and Norfolk County Council Social Services. Here PhD student Mujadad Zaman of Cambridge University introduced the classic tools of rhetoric and logic to facilitate higher level thinking in the context of classroom collaboration.

Cooperative Learning has been a valuable learning experience, which I will use in working with teachers. It enables everyone to contribute and encourages participants to actively listen to each other and provided a way to engage in controversy within a safe social environment. The tools are very easy to use and I have particularly liked the assessment element.

The following month, Islam in RE was presented at the Institute of Education (IoE) in London, where it was attended by national educators, especially RE coordinators, as well as community outreach specialists and academic researchers. This course was presented to PGCE students at the IoE in November 2014 (more).
 .
Given that key elements of this course we trailed at Norwich High School for Girls and Stalham Academy‘s recent choice to engage with Cooperative Learning it is thought-provoking that Norfolk – traditionally written off for it’s educational underachievement – should be the other early adaptor for this type of 21st century skills program.
