Quick question: Current topics of interest to the teaching profession?

Discussion in 'Science' started by Tomferris, Sep 6, 2015.

  1. I have been assigned a question to look at any current topic within science, and so was wondering if anyone knew of any current issues being faced within GCSE science, by both science teachers and/or students that i could describe, reflect on and then evaluate. (e.g. any changes in curriculum or in examination methods)

    Any input would be greatly appreciated,

    Thanks :)

    The role of practical work in science education and assessment.

    Methods of assessment to assess progress without using levels.

    I work in a girls' school and have never found this a problem. Loads of ours go onto science A levels and further. Perhaps it is having boys in school which puts them off?
