Event Description
This course will explore how to embed Assessment for Learning (AfL) within science lessons to provide teachers with opportunities to judge pupil’s ongoing progress in knowledge and skills. During the day there will be opportunities to develop learning intentions, success criteria and higher-order questioning with a particular focus on working scientifically. In order to do this, it would be helpful for delegates to bring the next topic they will be covering. There will be a chance to look at pupils' work and discuss how to make judgements about progress and provide feedback. Delegates are asked to bring a sample of topic work from two pupils to help with this teacher assessment.
