The Science department joined the scheme of “Green Living Starter” which is held by the La Violet education.  15 S2 students in the Science Enrichment Class participated in this programme.  Through the programme, students have learnt how to put the concept of green living in practice. Combining the design thinking concept and technology, students designed suitable proposal to conserve energy and keep a green living style.

Professional development initiative of the Science Department:

Lesson study on Groupwork as a pedagogical strategy to facilitate student learning in junior science

 

In this academic year (21-22), we have conducted a school-based professional development project in the Science Department.  Using lesson study as our major development approach, we explore using groupwork as a pedagogical strategy to facilitate student learning in S.2 Integrated Science (ISC).    The topics and areas covered in the project include the following: evaluating eye models, investigation design about photosynthesis, making better pH indicators, solving electric circuit puzzles and free body diagrams.

 

During lesson observations, active participation and high engagement of students in learning activities were common and frequent scenes in almost all lesson trials.  They were highly motivated and enjoyed activity-based learning tasks.

 

Participating teachers actively involved in the lesson study and tried out new classroom practices, modified those practices after evaluation in order to improve the effectiveness of student learning.  Teachers  are highly motivated in this project and generally find the lesson studies meaningful and fruitful in enhancing student learning.

Teachers involved in the Groupwork Project: Ho Hok Leong, Lam Man Fai, Hung Kwang Hse, Tsui Wai Sum, Lam Pui Chow, Leung Yuen Man
