TLRP: Towards evidence-based practice in science education 2: Developing and evaluating evidence-informed teaching sequences, TLRP research briefing 2
Can it be shown that some science teaching approaches work better than others for achieving specific curriculum aims? The science education research literature identifies learning difficulties and may suggest ways of addressing these. Few studies, however, develop and evaluate teaching interventions. This project involved designing, implementing and evaluating short teaching sequences, drawing on available insights from research. Pupils’ learning was measurably better in several important respects than for others following the schools’ normal approach to the same content.
