Erduran, Sibel; Wooding, Stephen J. – School Science Review, 2021
Many school practical activities focus on scientific methods such as hypothesis testing. Yet science is more than hypothesis testing: it includes other methods. This article presents a framework called 'Brandon's Matrix' that illustrates the diversity of scientific methods. The matrix has been used as part of Project Calibrate based at the…

Cottle, Dan – School Science Review, 2021
Learning science in school means also learning to use some mathematics. For many students at secondary level, even those who demonstrate an interest in the subject, this aspect can prove problematic. This article seeks to learn from the pedagogical practice of mathematics educators and examine three ways in which ideas that are used in mathematics…

Grace, Marcus; Griffiths, Janice; Hughes, Carys – School Science Review, 2021
Our connection with nature is important for mental and physical well-being and this connection depends on how we understand, value and engage with the natural world. However, there is persistent evidence that young people remain disconnected from nature. In this article we discuss reasons why many secondary schools in England are having difficulty…

Lakin, Liz – School Science Review, 2021
What do we really mean by sustainability and why is biodiversity so important? What is nature-connectedness and how can it be developed? By exploring these questions, the need for education within this context becomes ever more apparent. This article takes you on a journey of sustainability, exploring the term from a variety of standpoints. It…

Chandler-Grevatt, Andrew – School Science Review, 2021
The 'Moss Safari' activity was developed to assist with knowing which organisms to look for when observing a drop of water squeezed from moss for the first time. In this case study, the activity was introduced online to 34 trainee science teachers. This was followed by a post-session questionnaire evaluating their experience of the Moss Safari.…

Tan, Kim Chwee Daniel; Lim, Xin Ying; Talbot, Christopher David – School Science Review, 2021
Online multiple-choice instruments to diagnose students' understanding of science concepts are easily developed and administered to students using Google Forms. This article describes a web-based three-tier multiple-choice test for the formative assessment of students' understanding of chemical bonding. The results obtained can lead to follow-up…

Bammeke, Adeiyi Adedamola – School Science Review, 2021
This article draws greater attention to the use of language as a pedagogical tool in science teaching and learning. Evidence shows that Alexander's (2020) 'dialogic teaching' approach is significant in promoting learning in science when used interchangeably with authoritative patterns of talk. This article explores dialogic teaching, drawing on…

Harvey, Deborah; Montgomery, Louise; White, Rachel – School Science Review, 2021
Research has shown that spending time in nature is beneficial for children's mental wellbeing, but how long must they spend to gain some benefit? Here we present the results from two studies: the Schools' Biodiversity Project, which took place over a year, with children spending an hour a week exploring biodiversity in their school grounds; and a…

Glackin, Melissa; Greer, Kate – School Science Review, 2021
This article provides an up-to-date list of reasons for teachers to create a case for residential fieldwork. The list was developed as part of a project examining 'learning journeys' of inner-urban school visits to residential field centres in England. Uniquely, it draws from the perspectives of students and teachers in light of the changes to…

Yamamoto, Yoko – School Science Review, 2021
This article describes the evaluation of a teaching programme in Japanese secondary science classes, which introduces the perspective of deep ecology, reflecting the traditional Japanese view of nature. The study found that meditative activities in nature promoted students' sense of identifying with nature, with an underpinning factor of…

Weston, Matt; Weston, Sam – School Science Review, 2021
This article explores some of the links that can be made to the science curriculum through learning outdoors with bushcraft and Forest School activities. It focuses particularly on students who are otherwise disengaged with learning, or who have relatively complex needs that mean they find traditional education more challenging.

Dawson, Richard; Winks, Lewis – School Science Review, 2021
This article introduces biomimicry as an approach to STEM learning with a strong real-world application. It provides an introduction to biomimicry itself and some of the key principles behind using biomimicry as an approach to design. It draws upon almost three years of work within the BioLearn project, which is working with secondary schools in…

Pearce-Higgins, James W. – School Science Review, 2021
Biodiversity-monitoring citizen science schemes provide valuable long-term monitoring data and benefit participants. There is increasing interest in engaging young people with nature. The British Trust for Ornithology's 'What's Under Your Feet?' project shows how schoolchildren can monitor soil invertebrates. Although individual projects like this…

Ross, Keith – School Science Review, 2021
We often say food and fuels "contain" energy. It is more accurate to say that energy is stored in the "fuel-oxygen system" generated during photosynthesis. It is definitely "not" stored in fuels or food (except for the very small amount of energy that can be obtained during anaerobic respiration). Aerobic respiration…

de Winter, James; Denton, Alan – School Science Review, 2021
The bicycle is one of the greatest locomotive machines ever invented. It is also a perfect vehicle for you to teach some of the ideas that are taught in forces topics to 11- to 16-year-olds. In this article we look at some of the ways in which you can use the bicycle and cycling to provide an alternative and engaging context for teaching some of…
