Engagement in Science K-6

24 July 2018

Dan Sprange knows the power and potential of engaging Science lessons.

We often sit at the front of our classrooms and think, yeah, we’ve covered that, it’s all good, but if we were to sit in the minds of our students, we might see a very different picture…

We need to aim for durable knowledge and make time for students to understand… we are looking for high cognitive, high operative and high affective… it’s the process of working something out…

There is a skillset that goes with releasing responsibility to students… teachers that do this well have really high expectations for students.
