Job interview - 15mins intro to renewable energy resources?

Discussion in 'Science' started by Rhodders, Feb 9, 2012.

  1. Year 7, 12 pupils, middle to higher ability. Any ideas?

    I was thinking Q on the board 'what's renewable energy' brief Think-Pair-Share to extract prior knowledge/misconceptions

    Then discuss ideas

    Then play a video to give some info, ask the pupils whilst the vid plays to try pick out types of renewable energy and jot them down. Also any info they might pick up about each? Here's the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTyWeW5MEio


    Then get pupils to report back what they found out from the video.

    Any good so far?

    Any help greatly appreciated

  3. The video looks pretty good and it's nice to see people contributing their own research - well done.
    Some school ICT systems do not allow access to YouTube - check well before you get there!
    Starting by getting them talking MIGHT be slightly risky - you don't know them BUT they've probably been told to be on best behaviour. Is it worth showing the video first?
    Good luck.
    PS pity the video uses "w" instead of "W" for watts.
    Also kilometer.
    Given that the info is all about UK, it detracts from the overall good impression.
    PPS I'd recommend "What is ..." rather than "What's ..." but that is just a bit of pedantry (could be important if the HT is an English specialist [​IMG] )
