The best teaching draws on the best evidence. Yet despite increasing calls for evidence-based practice in classrooms, science teachers’ lives are so busy it is hard for them to access and effectively implement the best principles emerging from education research. 

This session introduces a new collection of free, research evidence-informed resources for effective teaching of difficult ideas, embedded formative assessment and adaptive lesson planning in 11-14 (KS3) science.

Attendees will be able to explore and interact with our online materials for use in their own classrooms, including subject maps and progression toolkits containing banks of diagnostic questions that reveal misunderstandings and response activities that help build scientific understanding. The resources are developed by the University of York Science Education Group and the Salters' Institute, and are freely available on the STEM Learning website.
