Improving Secondary Science

To be completed by: Thu 07 Feb 2019

Time: -Thu 07 Feb 2019 | Venue:

Based on the EEF’s Improving Secondary Science guidance report, this course focuses on seven areas where the evidence is strongest about how to enhance the teaching of science at secondary.

What are the evidence-informed best bets when it comes to Science teaching? On this three-day course, you will explore this evidence and implement the findings in your own context.

The recommendations of the guidance report we will explore are:

  • Preconceptions: build on the ideas that pupils bring to lessons
  • Self-regulation: Help pupils direct their own learning
  • Modelling: Use models to support understanding
  • Memory: Support pupils to retain and retrieve knowledge
  • Practical Work: Use practical work purposefully and as part of a learning sequence
  • Language of Science: Develop scientific vocabulary and support pupils to read and write about science
  • Feedback: Use structured feedback to move on pupils’ thinking

Tuesday 5th March; Tuesday 30th April; Wednesday 19th June

The course costs £295 for all three days and will be held at Dixons Cottingley Academy. Schools can send an additional delegate for £75.
