Secondary School Visits: Biology@DGS

This term I’m planning to try to visit as many Secondary departments as possible to see how they’re getting on with CfE and offer support. These started yesterday with a visit to Richard Woof, PT Biology at Dunbar Grammar. We had an interesting discussion about qualifications, articulation and personalisation & choice. We also discussed the nature of assessment in S1-3 and how to approach assessing skills. Richard shared with me their Scientific Skills Ladder, which is based on the Experiences & Outcomes which they’re using with their S1’s this year.
