Bloom's taxonomy terms are used to help students make progress. From a simple practical task in question 2, that allows student to experience the concept of equilibrium to question 8 that challenges students to investigate equilibrium with moments calculations. You are free to walk around the classroom offering advice, formative feedback, and asking challenging questions. High impact.

10 MC unusually phrased questions that require students to compare two types of graph: d-t,v-t and a-t graph. Challenge students to reflect on their understanding of these graphs. As a starter activity allow 10 minutes for individual students to answer the 10 questions. As and Assessment for learning (AFL) activity this delivers peer assessment when you ask students to check and discuss each other's answers. As a 'talk to learn' strategy allow students 5-10 minutes to argue for or against their answer. Detect general misconceptions or identify students with fundamental problems in this unit and plan an intervention lesson, or work with them while other students work on exam practise questions.

KS3 level 5 Tennis project; understanding sports injuries

(0)
KS3 level 5 covers practical skills and a GCSE topic; Hooke's law in the context of sport and injuries in tennis. This is part of a set of lessons to engage year 7 to 13 students (KS3, KS4 and KS5) with STEM subjects ( forces, data analysis and materials' technology) in the context of sport, and particularly Tennis as June-July is the season of many great tournaments. Why re-invent the wheel? Invest and enjoy for a many teaching groups and a few years to come.

10 minute activity to support quality of written communication level 4 to 6+. Ask students to describe the pair of contact forces and their effect in every slide. Students work on mini white boards with dry wipe pens, and share their written definitions , teacher picks the top 3 definitions to be read aloud ( promotes self assessment/ high impact feedback). You will also find a dominoes game with a variety of forces statement to use as a plenary or a revision activity and 2 engagement activities to use at the start of the lesson . High impact learning strategy! Promotes talk to learn, peer and self assessment. What price do you put on your time? Save them for other groups or to support revision in 2018.

New year! Laboratory rules and a Health and safety awareness lesson, high impact +Foundation ws.

(0)
The basic Science laboratory safety rules mainly apply to Chemistry practical work, but they are universal and must be stuck in students' exercise books at the start of the year, for reference. The PPP is looking to diagnose students' ideas, myths or sound knowledge of safety. The groups of questions, UK/New GCSE level: 2,4,6 (B old GCSE ), 8 +( A* Old GCSE) will help the teacher and students identify the inconsistencies in their knowledge and understanding, and through pair work and whole class discussions of the answers, students will be 'talking the talk ' of health and safety,and learning to risk assess. Ideal for paired work. Slides with teacher notes and levels have been hidden so that you allow student to choose the set of questions that they believe they can answer, print them out and display them around the lab. Thus encouraging all students to have a go independent of the ability category they believe themselves to be in. This is an ideal and rigorous introductory lesson for KS3 and KS4 with differentiation . It will help NQTs understand the process formulating scaffolded and differentiated question.

AS Physics equations of motion , linear motion under uniform acceleration self study

This worksheet is rigorous in its use of AS scientific terms and conventions, and it is a step by step description of Newton's second Law of motion to derive the four most useful equations of motion. The students is shown how their knowledge and understanding improves and expands from Physics GCSE 'C' grade to AS/ Maths Mechanics 1 'A' grade, through the use of exam style questions. The Mark scheme gives a step by step commentary on the methods and final answer conventions, to help the student understand the pitfall in problem solving e.g carelessness with units and decimal place presentation. The work could be set as a 2 hour independent study to support AS Motion in a straight line with constant acceleration and or Maths Mechanics 1 Dynamics. This worksheet will allow the teacher to see differentiation in the class and understand AS student's needs, thus targeting feedback and assistance efficiently. Change the way you teach and improve the impact of your experience and knowledge on your students progress for £3.

The framework will help you to construct rich questions. Question_answer strategies have many teaching and learning roles to play in the classroom; To support effective feedback questioning should move away from the factual regurgitation of knowledge or simple observations in favor of question that progressively demand higher levels of thinking . A good question that support learning is one that is open, requires the learner to link or apply ideas, and gives the learner an opportunity to practise the language of science that he/she has picked up from practical work, research or didactic lessons. Good questions ans good learning is supported by rigorous presentation of key terms.
