Getting Practical: a Framework for Practical Work in Science
This booklet from SCORE aims to help teachers to recognise and plan for a wide variety of high quality science practical work, ranging from out of the classroom learning to opportunities for students to practise specific techniques and procedures.
The booklet defines practical work in science and explains its purpose and importance. It also shows how to recognise high quality practical work, listing the learning points and skills development that it should include such as self-directed enquiry, team-work, use of ICT, using real data and challenging existing ideas and established concepts. The resource also examines how teachers and schools can improve the quality of practical work and what government, local and national bodies can do to help.
