This course will be delivered remotely.

Develop the background subject knowledge required to help planning and teaching physics for key stage 3. Start your key stage 3 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.

The course facilitator will be Alan Denton who is a senior facilitator for STEM Learning. Alan is the course author.



You will be able to:

  • use consistent approaches to teaching forces and motion that can address likely student misconceptions.
  • tell a story of electricity that differentiates the key terms including potential difference and current.
  • use energy stores to answer questions related to physical understanding.
  • compare the similarities and differences between sound and light waves.
