SEP: Learning Skills for Science 14-16
The Learning Skills for Science (LSS) programme was first produced at the Weizmann Institute of Science. The Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP) together with the Nuffield Foundation developed the materials to be used in the UK.
This collection aims to enhance the quality of science teaching and learning by providing teachers with:
- activities which develop students’ scientific communication skills
- resources and pedagogy that can be easily integrated into a variety of scientific subjects
- flexible teaching and assessment tasks suitable for different levels of students and a variety of learning styles.
Materials are written for 14-16 year old students. Each set of resources look at six different skill areas.
Skill area 1 - Information retrieval from books, library, experts and internet.
Skill area 2 - Listening and observing in presentations and to video.
Skill area 3 - Scientific reading of articles and textbooks.
Skill area 4 - Data representation by symbols, diagrams, graphs and tables.
Skill area 5 - Scientific writing of reports, case studies, papers, abstracts and bibliographies.
Skill area 6 - Knowledge presentation by oral presentation, multimedia and poster.
