Science do ‘The Big 4’

big4 pic 2Tonight after school, at our department meeting, the science department at DHS gave some thought to these four key aspects of effective pedagogy – questioning, feedback, independence and challenge.  Working in small groups they thought about what best practice looks like for each one.

For a group of scientists, we were surprisingly creative!  What follows is a summary of each one.

sci feedback

sci independence

sci challenge

A great use of meeting time!
