What’s BEST for KS3 science? This session will introduce Best Evidence Science Teaching (BEST) - a new collection of free, open-access, research-informed resources for effective engagement, teaching and formative assessment, initially focussed on science at ages 11-14. The resources are being developed by the University of York Science Education Group and the Salters’ Institute. We are running classroom trials with teachers to help develop the resources and add to the research evidence base.

Best Evidence Science Teaching draws upon the best available research evidence to provide resources for:
  • Effective teaching of difficult ideas
  • Purposeful practical work
  • Targeted formative assessment
  • Increased student engagement

Come along to explore sample resources and to find out about collaborating with researchers from the University of York in our classroom trials.
