Kursinhalt

Support the biology curriculum with plant science

Biology lessons provide opportunities to inspire students with practical examples of science. On this course, developed with specialists at Science & Plants for Schools (SAPS), you will learn how to use plants to teach biology and support secondary students’ learning.

You’ll improve your knowledge of plant science and learn how to incorporate it into the curriculum. You’ll be able to share examples of hinge-point questions to address student misconceptions. You’ll also explore how to help your students apply what they’ve learnt to new contexts and increase their engagement in the classroom.

This course is designed as professional development for science and biology teachers of 11-16 year olds. It will be useful to newly qualified (NQT), early career, returning, and non-specialist teachers, technicians, and teaching assistants (TA).

It’s recommended that teachers have access to a school laboratory to evaluate approaches to practical work during this course.
