I was first hooked on science by an inspirational biology teacher at school. Since then I have loved exploring and getting to grips with scientific ideas and enjoy sharing this passion with students and teachers in the classroom.
All students can succeed in science and enjoy it. Over the past few years I have become increasingly convinced that what inspires and motivates students is their intrinsic desire to understand the World and be challenged to think and make meaning. This requires great science teachers with an excellent subject knowledge and understanding of pedagogy.
the science teacher website provides free access to teaching resources that have been designed to help students understand important scientific concepts. Activities have been designed to challenge students, using diagnostic questioning, so that responsive teaching can take place. There are also pages to support great pedagogy. If you would like to share you own science teaching resource please get in touch.
I hope these resources and ideas are useful, go forth and challenge!
