Synopsis

Connecting Science KS3 in 2 Years Teacher's Guide by Lynn Chapman, David E. Quinn

For schools implementing a condensed Key Stage 3 curriculum, the Connecting Science Pupil's Guide covers the whole of Key Stage 3 in a single volume. A matching Teacher's Guide now provides support in planning progression, showing how the renewed Framework yearly teaching objectives for Years 7, 8 and 9 may be covered in six or seven terms. The Connecting Science print and digital resources provide unique flexibility in curriculum design because the Core plus Options structure gives teachers choices in varying the suggested timings, and the Pupil's Guide allows cross-referencing across the Key Stage. Dynamic Learning allows teachers to search for and group digital resources across the Year 7, 8 and 9 CD-ROMs. Hodder Education also provides free downloadable lesson plans with resources already grouped into lesson plans to match the Teacher's Guide for KS3 in 2 years. The Teacher's Guide for KS3 in 2 years meets all the requirements of the revised Programme of Study and Framework for Science, offering departments the option of: * gifted students taking GCSEs a year early (Core Science in year 9) * having a longer run at GCSE courses (e.g. separate sciences in years 10 and 11) * deferring the start of KS3 by a term to improve the transition from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 3 * deferring the start of KS3 to work on basic skills with low attaining Year 7s.
