Evidence Based Intervention: The Importance Of Scientific Research In Schools

Decent Essays

For my evidence based intervention I understand the importance of scientific research to inform my practice, however, I believe that the consideration of individual characteristics is just as important. I must consider the issues of lack of confidence, purpose and effort for each of my students and use research to develop strategies that may work for my students.

Andy’s survey developed the idea that science lessons bore him and the material in class is uninteresting, this links to the idea that engineering is an option if he gets the right marks, Chemistry is quite removed from his passion of Metal Work and where he sees himself going. This intervention will require the development of the relatability of Chemistry to his life, so material become more interesting and engaging for him. Andy’s teachers, his reports and my observations all note the same idea, Andy is a capable student who lacks a focus and determination to work hard. Andy is understanding lessons and asking questions yet he dislikes the work that is required to complete for internal and external exams.
