IDEAS In-Service Materials
The IDEAS training materials are for use on continuous professional development courses to support the teaching of ideas and evidence in school science. The materials offer six in-service CPD sessions, which take approximately half a day each. Ideas and approaches for lessons are illustrated using materials provided in the file of resources.
Session 1: Introducing Argument
Session 2: Managing Small Group Discussions
Session 3: Teaching Argument
Session 4: Resources for Argumentation
Session 5: Evaluating Argument
Session 6: Modelling Argument
Each of the sessions is supported with:
* Guidance notes on the session as a whole and on the individual activities
* Handouts to support the activities
* OHT originals to be photocopied or made into slides.
In addition there are two PowerPoint presentations which link together the OHT originals for two of the sessions.
