Cracking Science: Build a world-class curriculum
Revised publication date: end of June
In the UK, schools will soon be inspected on the quality of their curriculum. Cracking Science shows how to re-design your curriculum so that the overall intentions flow through to the learning units and lessons, to assessment. When all these are aligned, students achievement can soar.
Gone are the days when Science GCSEs were memory tests. With the new exams, 60% of the marks are for applying and analysing. Following a curriculum that just teaches the specification statements is no longer a guarantee for exam success.
If you’re improving your school’s curriculum, this ebook provides a framework, backed up by research evidence, for making sound decisions: from organising units for clear progression, to writing objectives and designing assessments that reveal understanding and provide accurate feedback. If you recognise change is needed but don’t currently have the power to action it, this book will give you arguments to persuade those who do.
