RT @: Are A-level students taking subjects because they like them or due to long term goals? #SciTeachJC

@ does it say what it is about lessons they don't like? Is it curriculum based? #SciteachJC

.@ Good question. And I wonder if the way students select A-levels has changed with increased uni tuition fees? #SciTeachJC

@ once that I know of - he got to research ebola - this is top set triple - sadly I think this is still too common #SciTeachJC

@ #SciteachJC That's the most important point of the paper. School Science too knowledge based. Not enough real problem solving.

@ @ @ don't figures suggest that this is only true in physics? Bio & chem are okay. #SciteachJC

@ the paper suggests that the gulf is due to the disconnect between science in lessons and science in society #sciteachJC

@ Some of my brighter *YEAR 8s* research Leishmaniasis for one of my lessons. It's too late by Year 11 #SciTeachJC

@ @ not for reasons but how we can help them get more out of their science - context & current research help #SciTeachJC

@ @ I don't have data to say. Numbers have increased more than increase in A levels in general though/ #SciteachJC

@: @ good place to start. Do 11-16 schools know uptake of A level sciences. Most I speak to do not. #SciteachJC

@ yep well he often says he wishes I could teach his teachers how to do it (he often helps me plan lessons) #SciTeachJC

@ @ I think some like science lessons but just have no desire to study beyond GCSE. We need to know why not. #SciteachJC

@ @ found good RSC problem solving resource today I hadn't seen before. Much more CPBL for my Y9s nxt year #sciteachjc

@ @ I expect top set students to prep knwldg at home so we can play in the lab. Not sure about lower sets #SciTeachJC

@ A-level choices limited by very poor careers advice in schools. options other than medicine. And also need for maths #SciTeachJC

#SciteachJC Final quote says a lot - attitudes are enduring while knowledge has an ephemeral quality - how does that fit with school sci?
@brendanaylor
Brenda Naylor

MT @: @ think increased numbers mostly come from independents > Alevel uptake <is there data to show that? #SciteachJC

@ #SciteachJC Great idea to prep knowledge - so sci in school is more about application

@ @ a paper unread for my last assignment asked those questions but it was from 1997 #SciteachJC

Anyone else find the #SciTeachJC paper a bit of slog to read?

@ @ @ paper suggests enhanced subject choice at A level is partly to blame. #SciteachJC

@ Ah, but teaching is about so much more than presenting the information / lecturing #SciTeachJC

Student interest seems to decline when they start secondary school. What can teachers do to stop this from happening? #SciteachJC

@ This is true in my school. It leaves me with AWFUL candidates that have unrealistic in their goals. #SciTeachJC

@ I see. The curriculum does appear to get political and repeat itself at times. How to make it more relevant? #SciteachJC
@Lennybun

@ What careers advice? I got next-to-none & judging by young people I work with, it's still not enough of a priority #SciTeachJC

#SciteachJC Long paper but they were looking at many studies - the conclusion distills out the main points. Good place to start!
