To excel in exams students need to be able to think critically and creatively when under pressure. It is not enough to simply regurgitate a concept or rule. They need to be able to apply ideas to situations they may not have encountered before – whilst meeting tight deadlines.
You can receive a set of curriculum linked resources that are specifically designed to develop these skills through science – the very skills the OECD report are in increasingly high demand by employers but in short supply.
It is all part of the new Thinkers in Education Update that is going live this term and costs absolutely nothing.
Starters, plenaries, full lessons and projects – supported by teaching screens, student worksheets, online quizzes and homework challenges – can be emailed to you a few times each term to download ready to insert into your teaching as and when the time arises.
The activities will save you time, challenge pupils to learn by problem solving and help to increase engagement via the unusual contexts and competitive challenges included.
More importantly, they will help you to identify and transform those students who are fabulous at regurgitating information but then fall short under exam pressures. It is an approach that has proven hugely successful with thousands of pupils in our STEM workshops since 2001.
You will receive a range of classroom activities throughout the year, find out about student workshops in your area and have first access to any upcoming promotions.
