Inspire Me! Pupils' Views of What Inspires Them and What Constitutes an Inspiring Lesson
Darlington, Helen
School Science Review, v93 n345 p117-122 Jun 2012
Both "pupil voice" and "staff voice" can be powerful tools in developing various aspects of a school, but only if there is a strong dialogue between the two. This project used a number of different approaches--questionnaires, lesson observations and planning discussions--to investigate pupils' views of what inspires them to learn in science and staff views of what they believe inspires pupils to learn. A number of interesting differences between the responses from staff and pupils were uncovered as well as a number of clear messages about what inspires pupils to learn. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
