ASE London Region Workshop: Early career teachers - Planning 4 progression
A workshop on planning for progression aimed at Early Career teachers
As a Student Teacher /Pre-Service Teachers or Early Career Teacher, knowing where to start planning for a topic can sometimes be challenging. Do you prioritise securing your subject knowledge? Do you plan for a practical task? Should you become familiar with the scientific misconceptions associated with each topic and then plan to address these; where do you start?
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to attend TWO out of the three sessions available. Within each session there will be a science technician, a primary specialist and a secondary specialist teacher to discuss these ideas and challenges with you as you start to plan for pupil learning within these topics. Whilst we accept that there are a lot of other topics to teach apart from these three, we hope that the approach taken here might help you form an approach to planning.
