What is differentiation? How can it be put into practice in primary science lessons? Is it really possible to provide differentiated learning activities for a class of thirty or more children? Taking a refreshingly pragmatic approach, Anne Qualter addresses these challenging issues in this book. Drawing on her own experience as a classroom teacher combined with research undertaken in a wide range of primary classrooms, the author shows that genuinely differentiated primary science is achievable. Using several classroom examples, she argues that differentiation is t simply about categorising children as more or less able but involves the teacher in complex decisions which take account of the child's understanding and a variety of other factors.
