How should we teach science?
The QCA have a consultation going on right now about how science is taught in the UK. Contributing means completing a rather large questionnaire, during the Summer break.
SciCast supporter, teacher, and film-maker Alom Shaha is a bit miffed about the way this is being done, so he’s rolled up his sleeves and taken matters into his own hands. He’s hosting an open forum for opinions and discussion at his site howscience.co.uk. The QCA have assured him they’ll read his summary of responses; he’s hoping to collect contributions from rather more teachers than they do.
If you’re a science teacher, and you have something to say, please do take a look at the site, leave comments if you’re so moved, and consider writing up your own thoughts to add to the conversation. You can contact Alom by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
