Super challenging subject this, its all about the build up so make sure you 've laid solid groundwork first, this is a mostly practical lesson with students setting up immersion heaters, measing the latent heat of fusion (how much energy it takes to melt something) and then plugging through a multistage equation to calculate an answer, easily extended to check the official figure for Lf and consider the percentage error of results. Super fun but also makes the kids feel like this is the sum of quite a familiar stretch of physics.
Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!
My style of teaching isn’t for everyone, I’m a dyslexic teacher who’s heard it all, my lessons are all catered towards accessibility (because if they were not I’d never be able to read them myself). Everything is short sharp and to the point, I don’t believe in endless writing, reams of printing, spoon feeding diagrams or pointless activities. Every minute matters!
Be sure to check out all my other resources, as a personal goal I intend to share all my resources at least once because hey, the government isn’t going to make it easier and we both know you are reading this way outside of your work hours.
Enjoy, comment or rate if you can, but most of all hang in there, they need you way more than you realise!
