Addressing misconceptions in science - ECN RA203 / C04
This twilight session will address ways to reveal and tackle common misconceptions that prevent students from progressing in science. We will also consider threshold concepts - what they are and why they can form barriers to pupil progress.
This course is aimed at early career teachers – those in the first 5 years of their practice; although anyone who wants to brush up on these skills is welcome to attend.
You will be able to:
- Identify common misconceptions in science (and how to elict them).
- Understand what we mean by threshold concepts and their importance to pupil progress.
- Develop ways of planning to address student misconceptions (and enhance progress).
