Difficult Ideas in Chemistry REPEATED I05
Difficult ideas in Chemistry

Particles which do not change amidst change, burning which builds up oxides, the funny pH scale, reaction rates - how do we approach these difficult ideas?

  • We explore some of the barriers to understanding our chemical environment, starting with those particles which do not change even though things burn, grow, rot and evaporate around us.
  • Then we examine the process of burning which is a constructive process with energy stored in the fuel/oxygen system (no energy is stored in food or fuels!).
  • The gaseous oxides of combustion are acidic and the solid ashes are alkaline, but what is this strange pH scale?
  • And why do slow reactions get so much faster as the temperature rises – a 10 degree rise in temperature often doubles the rate? (Think of the time it takes milk to go sour – 8 days in the ‘fridge at 4 degrees, 4 days in a cool house at 14 degrees, 2 days in a warm house at 24 and a day at 34 degrees.)
My talk will be exemplified by reactions we see in everyday life, and I will suggest ideas for helping students understand the underlying chemistry.
Attached is a draft of the PowerPoint I will use - the final version will be available after the conference.
About Keith Ross
I started teaching science in school on VSO in India after a metallurgy degree at Oxford. After a year in industry I made teaching my career, first in secondary schools in Birmingham and Leicestershire, then for 3 years in Nigeria. I was deeply inspired by Clive Sutton during a Master's in Education at Leicester University and was involved with some of the early challenges made to the science national curriculum by Ros Driver and colleagues.
In1980 I moved to teacher education at what became the University of Gloucestershire at Cheltenham. I began by working with students from Africa on A level chemistry teaching. Later I became the science tutor for the GITEP post graduate secondary teacher education project and the book “Teaching Secondary Science” now in its 4th edition was the outcome. Today’s talk is based on chapter 14 - 'Difficult ideas in Chemistry'.
In 2007-8 I worked with primary teachers in a college of education in Pakistan, and more recently, retired and living in the South West of France, I have been helping to develop chemistry videos for Fuseschool.

Why Don’t you Enjoy HEC? I14
Do you know "Kasetsu", Hypothesis-Experiment Class?
In this session, we will present a concrete method and theory on how HEC enables students to engage in learning science concepts with unique teaching materials indispensable to HEC. The majority of students exposed to HEC evaluate the class as FUN!  Regardless of when, where, and by whom it is carried out.
   Attractive Classbooks in various fields (starting with mechanics and physics) have been developed and utilized in all grades from primary education to university liberal arts education.
   Please come and see what HEC is through one of the typical Classbooks "Objects and their Weight". This Classbook is usually carried out in classes of 8-14 years-old. We will also show some of the real class records at primary schools in Japan.

Transforming STEM Education: Air Quality as a powerful theme for integration I22
Air quality, especially in urban areas, is a world-wide problem. Using an active, audience-involved format, this keynote shows how subject integration engages all levels.
  1. It makes the case for STEM subject integration rather than separate disciplines
  2. It provides valuable content outside that to be expected from traditionally educated teachers
  3. It explores issues of pedagogy that will educate not indoctrinate
  4. It will involve some short interactive interludes
  5. It makes the case for action as part of STEM Education, as part of learner engagement
  6. It moves from hypothetical contexts (nuclear powerstations in every town) to real community issues

MASCIL I24
Aspects of Inquiry based learning (IBL)  can be traced back many years in some countries. However, despite considerable support for IBL approaches in some jurisdictions, uptake of IBL has been slow. In Europe, following the Ricard Report (2008), there has been a renewed emphasis on IBL and considerable funding for a range of projects aimed at promoting the use of IBL. The Maths and Science for Life (Mascil) Project is one of these projects. At the core of the project is a Professional Development (PD) 'Toolkit' aimed at supporting teachers in developing their use of IBL approaches in authentic contexts linked to the 'World of Work'.
This session will draw on research linked to the Mascil project concerning the attitudes, beliefs and practices of science teachers in examining some of the contestations in the field of IBL and the barriers to progress. It will also examine the different ways in which the Mascil model of PD has been utilised, reflecting its emphasis on participants taking ownership and the development of professional learning communities . The materials developed through the project will be drawn on in the session and are freely available to use. They can be accessed at: http://www.mascil-project.eu

Unconscious Bias and Its Effect in the Classroom T35
For more than 30 years, uptake of A-level physics among girls has remained at around 20%. Previous research from the IOP has shown that this 20% comes from certain schools and that schools that achieve a good gender balance in physics achieve a good gender balance in other subjects, suggesting that the problem isn’t with girls or physics - whole school environment makes a difference. 
The latest project from the IOP has trialled interventions that looked at how bias and stereotyping could be addressed in a school environment as well how lower confidence of girls could be addressed. The project shows promising results with the number of girls taking A level physics in targeted schools trebling. This workshop looks at what unconscious bias is, how it affects the classroom and what teachers can do about it.

The internet of field and laboratory things: Real data, authentic interfaces for practical work
Please be aware that the work described in this talk is not about replacing field trips and laboratories with something less expensive and less exciting. Rather it is about using the affordances of the internet to take people closer than they might easily get to the exciting discovery opportunities of interactive learning.
The OpenSTEM Labs are the digital equivalent of a field study centre and a block of teaching labs. We began with onscreen activities such as virtual microscopes and other interactive tools linked to real data. Recent investment has allowed the incorporation of facilities for online remote access to real instruments: optical and electron microscopes; analytical tools such as spectrophotometry, FTIR, HPLC, GCMS; a planetary-rover training-landscape; immersive virtual reality. These form a key part of the practical facilities that are now accessible to our distance learning students, via the internet and 24/7. The OpenSTEM Labs enable us to be more inclusive and more accessible than is conventionally the case. In addition to describing how the OpenSTEM Labs are used across all of STEM, including by students of Earth Sciences, this talk will propose ways which we might enable other educators to make use of our facilities. In the presentation several remotely located instruments will be operated and other on screen devices for interactive learning will be demonstrated.
The OpenSTEM Labs are a key feature of the OU's curriculum in several STEM disciplines. It is based on an original initiative with the Wolfson Foundation (2012) to establish the OpenScience Laboratory. In 2015 further investment from a HEFCE STEM capital investment enabled us to expand the laboratory to cover a wide range of disciplines including Engineering, with a new OpenNetworking Lab to be added in the near future. The OpenSTEM Labs are contributing to a HEFCE funded project "Embedding and Sustaining Inclusive STEM Practices" (in collaboration with Earth Science colleagues in Plymouth and Leeds).

This workshop is aimed at teachers of key stage 3 (Years 8 and 9) students. This session will provide an overview of what the Institute of Physics Science Ambassador Training Scheme is and how schools can get involved to develop their own Physics Ambassadors. Once trained, these ambassadors can deliver sessions at outreach events, primary schools or for a school STEM club before helping to train a new generation of Science Ambassadors at their school. The scheme is unique in that it uses an inter-generational teaching and learning approach, helping to bridge the gap for the students involved. It also uses inclusive teaching practices to compliment the work the IOP is doing to address gender balance in Physics and empowers students; especially girls, to drive through their own ideas.
 During the session participants will get an opportunity to try out some of the activities that the students complete on the training day, find out a little more about the preparatory personal development workshops, the feedback received to date and what some Science Ambassadors are up to now.

Threshold Concepts and the Space in Between: Applying research to every day practice T81
Threshold concepts are challenging, “troublesome” concepts that, once mastered, enable students to develop a new (or transformed) understanding, and to make connections that were previously inaccessible. I wanted to identify the stumbling blocks in KS4 Structure and Bonding that hold students back from developing a deeper understanding.
Using misconceptions literature, I identified and compiled a list of tricky concepts, and I aimed to identify the true threshold concepts via teaching and assessment.
I'll demonstrate how you can integrate research ideas, including Misconceptions literature and Cognitive Science, into everyday practice without significantly veering off-piste. Via my usual assessment activities, I identified "hurdles" and "bottlenecks" that prevent students fully understanding a topic.

I'll also talk about how and why I think spaced practice might help students to move from "mimicry" (giving the correct answers to questions, without fully-developed understanding) to "mastery.

Twenty Years after “Beyond 2000”: What does the future hold for the science curriculum? – A view from Salters S14
In 1998, the Nuffield Foundation funded report Beyond 2000 was published. Written and edited by Robin Millar and Jonathan Osborne, it proved to be exceptionally influential. It crystallized issues about the function and audience for school science and led to a major shift in the science National Curriculum. Twenty years later, what is its legacy and is there any longer room for its vision of scientific literacy for all? What do we now think should be the purpose of school science and who should decide such questions? The lecture will reflect on these issues with particular reference to the work of the Salters’ Institute, which is celebrating its Centenary in 2018.

“I’ve changed my mind!” Supporting the development of children’s ideas W94
Children (and indeed adults, as we may well prove during the session) like to be right, and children’s progress with conceptual understanding in science is often hindered by an unwillingness to change their minds. The tendency to hold on to scientifically incorrect ideas, even when they have been shown otherwise, is very strong (Johnston, 2014).
This workshop will explore practical strategies for helping children be comfortable with the idea of being ‘wrong’, and to be confident to change their minds. It will suggest that teachers should be happy with children’s ideas sometimes being scientifically incorrect.
It will demonstrate how linking an idea with evidence enables children to propose a range of possible ideas that may or may not be correct, but have value because they are linked to a piece of established evidence. Working in this way also helps children manage uncertainty and recognise that science is not black and white, and cannot always explain everything.

Think-Universe! S27
Join this workshop and learn how to get involved in a revolutionary, challenging and exciting project on Science Education at KS2 and KS3.

Think Universe! All is one is a short but essential foundation course on the nature of the world and the origins of everything, including ourselves.
Science content
The science content is necessarily wide, but very simple and presented at a coherent and accessible level.
In the first few lessons, pupils embark in an adventure of discovery that starts at the world around us, then explores smaller and smaller components to reach finally the smallest things imaginable: the fundamental building blocks of the Universe. Next, pupils assemble a cosmic timeline, where major milestones such as the Big Bang, the formation of atoms, molecules, stars, planets, living environments and humanity find their places. The timeline is the backbone of the course and also provides a historical sequence from physics to chemistry and finally, biology. The diverse topics in all lessons are closely linked to each other in a coherent and continuous experience.
Teaching methodology
It is a structured questioning method called Question Line, where thinking is at the core of the learning process (Question Line is part of the PhD research by one of us - Shirin Sheikh-Bahai - at the UCL Institute of Education). How are the questioning, thinking and learning connected to each other? What is the relevance of misconceptions? How to make knowledge and ability gaps vanish between pupils coming from a diversity of backgrounds? There is plenty of practical work using optical microscopes, building plasticine models of atomic structure, polystyrene models of simple molecules, developing a physical timeline of the Universe, and so forth.
Training for teachers, science coordinators and science leaders

Both science content and methodology require specific training, which can be done in three twilight teacher masterclasses (adaptable format). One of the main aims of this training is to de-mystify the apparent complexity and difficulty of the science content, by understanding that it is to be kept at a basic conceptual level well away from the higher levels of conventional courses in particle physics, astronomy, biochemistry or evolutionary biology. A science background is not required. Our masterclasses empower teachers and leave them confident for a successful classroom delivery with the additional possibility of becoming teacher trainers themselves.
Getting involved
In this workshop we will present a broad view of the entire project and most important, we will describe how to get involved and trained on science content, Question Line methodology, use of the dedicated teaching equipment and materials and even how to become ambassadors as part of a future nationwide expansion.

DNA Detectives in the classroom T153
In this session we will explore how chapters from a new children’s fictional book DNA Detectives: To Catch a Thief by  Dr Amanda Hartley can be coupled with hands-on activities in the classroom to teach 7-10 years olds about DNA and forensics.
We will provide a short introduction to the DNA detective books series, introducing the characters and plotlines. We will then showcase a series of free DNA and forensic themed resources and highlight where they link to key themes covered in the book.
Blending literacy, storytelling, and science-based activities is a great way for the story to come alive for the students and for the gain a greater understanding behind the scientific concepts. This cross-curricular approach helps to support science teaching in a fun and effective way.
Amanda will also talk about her classroom-based DNA Detectives workshops and how they can be used to bring the subject to life. All schools can access a free interactive workshop which accompanies the book (and hire a box of props to help make the workshop even more interactive!)
