Teaching Key Stage 3 physics for non-scientists NY304 / A20
Are you teaching Key Stage 3 science for the first time? Develop your pedagogical and subject knowledge with a focus on the key principles needed to teach science effectively though the use of stimulating practical activities and demonstrations. We will explore and refine the understanding of key topics including energy, motion, forces, waves, electricity and magnetism. We will look at cutting edge research that will link the learning to students' everyday lives and look at scaffolding the learning to show rapid and sustained progression.
Who is it for?Non-scientists teaching Key Stage 3 physics.What topics are covered?This two day course covers:
⚪ electricity - building basic circuits and terminology
⚪ energy - becoming confident in using the pathways and stores model
⚪ forces - thought provoking independent investigations on moments and more
⚪ motion - how this links to forces and seeing the bigger picture
⚪ magnetism - gaining confidence in a difficult and abstract concept
How long is the course?This is a two day intensive residential course. Who is the course leader?
Adam LittleSecondary Physics Professional Development Leader, based at the National STEM Learning Centre in York.
✔️ teach Key Stage 3 physics with increased confidence using a range of teaching strategies to assess students' prior understanding
✔️ develop understanding and move learning forward at pace
✔️ evaluate the impact of change within your teaching on students attitudes and outcomes
