Happier teachers and more engaged students: Introducing the Science Capital Teaching Approach
Are you keen on engaging more students with science? Do you want to make your lessons more inclusive? Could a focus on students’ ‘science capital’ be the answer? Join the Enterprising Science Teacher Conference to find out.
Some students struggle to see science as relevant to their lives. Many teachers know that this limits their participation and makes engagement with science difficult. This conference follows four years’ research on science capital in the classroom and its potential to unlock the riddle of student engagement with science.
The Enterprising Science project (2012-2017), led by Prof. Louise Archer and her research team, partnered with teachers across England to develop and trial the Science Capital Teaching Approach that builds on students’ own personal interests and diverse experience. The approach is designed to support inclusion and student equitable student participation. Research shows that implementation of the approach can lead to increased student engagement with science and a greater sense of agency among teachers.
