Science and Pupils with Special Educational Needs - a Workshop Pack for Key Stages 1 and 2
This book from the National Curriculum Council is designed for teachers of students with special educational need in both mainstream and special schools. The book covers parts of the National Curriculum for science for Key Stages One and Two. It provides planned activities each with a commentary explaining how the INSET can be run the benefits of the approach taken. It also provides examples of completed activity to support further.
In this publication the priority was to review how accessible the National Curriculum was to students with special educational needs (SEN). It explains the principles of ‘science for all’ and establishes the expectation that planning for students with SEN should be addressed at three levels: whole school policy; schemes of work; lesson plans.
It gives support and ideas for teachers in Key Stages One and Two. This publication draws on good practice in schools with students with a wide range of special educational needs.
The book provides a definition of terms involved in areas of science education. This is followed by a series of activities each designed to explore an issue involved. These are:
• The effect of poor differentiation
• Modifying teaching activities.
It was produced with the help of a team of teachers and advisors from Humberside LEA. This booklet is based on an INSET session held at the Association for Science Education Annual Meeting at Birmingham University in January 1991. It was prepared for primary advisory teachers and tutors in initial teacher training to use on INSET courses.
The National Curriculum was introduced by the passing into law of The Education Reform Act of 1988. It established the idea of a National Curriculum (NC) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The National Curriculum Council set out also to support the implementation of the National Curriculum by providing support and guidance for teachers. It also identified it needed to keep the National Curriculum under review
