@ @ I only teach post-16, but I only set homework to consolidate classwork, or research/prepare for next lesson #SciTeachJC

@ often interesting to consider difference between 'describing' 'labelling' 'stereotyping'... and get kids to! #SciteachJC

@ By Ofsted or by management? Because management told us Ofsted wanted full lesson plans down to the minute! #SciTeachJC

@ Is there certainty that all current practices do good, maybe they do not, careful experiment only way to know #SciTeachJC

Fair play to the teachers contributing to #sciteachjc I can't really cope this late in the term. And #saintsfc are playing.

@ @ @ #sciteachjc Colour coded? Do they give you your own set of highlighters at the start of term?

@ #SciTeachJC Me too - I keep arguing that homework is not useful - waste lots of time chasing! Like the idea of homework as prep though

@ I use a hardcopy one - gets my (uni) students thinking about different forms of communication. Most online ones ££ #SciTeachJC

@ I learn different things in different ways... primary method (reading) usually depends on if I'm interested #sciteachjc
@A_Weatherall
Alex Weatherall

#SciTeachJC Way to do homework effectively - set a test on some of the ACTUAL questions they were SUPPOSED to do! Amazing how they cotton on
@Lethandrel

@ would love to have freedom to use much more open-ended, self-directed 'HW' ie prep&practice. #wheniruletheworld #SciTeachJC

@ @ This is going to sound terribly controversial, but, try _not_doing_it_ and see what happens next #sciteachjc
@gwiff
Griff John

@ #SciTeachJC How is it a waste of time for students to learn how to solve a problem on their own?
@jennjtaylor
Jenn Taylor

@ @ #sciteachjc Never saw point of chasing hw, and tried to set work that didn't involve marking (explain topic to adult etc)
@DrDav
Carol Davenport

Is moral of today's #SciTeachJC that we need to ask "what's evidence for that?" more regularly when presented with new ideas about teaching?
@SciTeachJC
Science Teaching JC

@ i sometimes set HW for Yr12/13 to prep 6-8Qs, then do 2 in test conditions. #SciteachJC



@ @ ...and don't forget the colour coded seating plans! #SciTeachJC

@ Learning Styles. MYTH....BUSTED 😉 #sciteachjc ???
@A_Weatherall
Alex Weatherall

@ Definitely but also would be good to have a place I could go to to find evidence for/against. Is there one? #SciTeachJC
@pootleposy
Jo Plumb

@ Yes! Always do and always will. Evidence doesnt always have to be formal research.Have to see it work 2 believe it! #SciTeachJC
