Results and Evaluation
Areas of strength: Both groups were engaged and understood new concepts well. Everyone submitted homework that showed improvement from the baseline test.

Areas of weakness: Off-topic discussion (Yr 9s), quiet students struggling to participate in discussion (Yr 10s)

Targets going forwards: Take a more active role in leading discussions to move away from tangential questions and involve quiet students.
Group discussion -
mixed questioning style, hot-seating, diagrams and calculations on portable white boards eg waveform graphs.
Activities for each concept block, testing a variety of skills -
frequency generator app, echolocation treasure hunt, identify the body part from the scan, ethics debate.
Final summaries, homework, recap at the start of the next tutorial
Year 9/10 Students
