Thinking, Doing, Talking, Science 4 day programme
Thinking, Doing, Talking Science (TDTS) is an evidence-based, interactive four-day CPD programme for primary teachers, focusing on the development of creative and challenging science lessons that encourage pupils to use higher-order thinking skills.
TDTS facilitates teachers to enable their pupils to think and talk about scientific concepts through dedicated discussion times, introduces a wide range of strategies for creative investigations and problem solving and encourages the focusing of pupils’ recording so that is there is always time for practical science.
The TDTS programme is practical and enjoyable and provides strategies and activity ideas that can translate immediately into classroom practice without the need for extra expense and excessive planning. There is a clear framework that ties together the project strategies and this is embedded in sound educational theory. Ideas are not all new but pull together a range of good practice in primary science education, in a way that has been shown to be highly effective. All of the TDTS strategies support progression in ‘working scientifically’ and on each day of the course, the strategies are exemplified through a particular curriculum content area (e.g. Materials, Forces, Earth and Space, Light and Sound and Habitats & Adaptation) for which there are accompanying subject knowledge notes. All teachers who participate in the 4-day TDTS course are provided with a hard copy of all the resources in a TDTS folder as well as access to electronic versions of the resources via the TDTS website.
