Subject knowledge enhancement: Physics KS4 RX014 / HA02
This course will be delivered by Cambridge & Peterborough and Norfolk & Suffolk SLPs. The course facilitator will be Alan Denton who is a senior facilitator for STEM Learning. Alan is the course author.
Develop the background subject knowledge required to help planning and teaching physics for key stage 4. It will build on your knowledge from undertaking the key stage 3 physics course. Start your key stage 4 teaching with the tools and confidence to plan and teach effective learning for your physics classes. You will explore ways of building student understanding, taking into account misconceptions and common issues in teaching these concepts.
You will be able to:
- make links between forces and motion using Newton’s Laws.
- develop an understanding for electricity and magnetism using a stepped series of student-led activities.
- cultivate a secure understanding of atomic structure to help teach radioactive decay.
- evaluate a range of Key Stage 4 practicals including the resistance of wire, Ohm’s Law, Hooke’s Law and density.
