Differentiated Primary Science
This book provided by Anne Qualter, discusses the provision of different experiences suited to the needs of individual children. The introduction of the National Curriculum brought new challenges for teachers in respect of ensuring opportunities for all children to learn and focused on different conceptions and ways of implementing differentiation. The book opens with an account of the changes in teaching which accompanied the introduction of the requirement to teach certain processes and concepts of science. This is followed by discussion of ways of learning and of the factors which influence their ability to learn from classroom activities. The author recognises that that complexity of these factors means that there is no formula to follow in planning differentiated learning experiences.
