Selecting learning intentions for practical work

The same piece of practical work can be used in so many ways, depending on how you plan the lesson. For example, the root tip squash experiment we will look at next week could be used for students to identify stages of cell division, or to develop microscopy skills.

In the next steps there are three videos showing enzyme practicals.

After the videos we will identify the different types of learning intentions which the practicals could help students achieve. You’ll be asked to select one of the three practical activities and create learning objectives and success criteria for it.
