Day 11: Burnin’ Up

Today in science 9 we had our first introduction to SBG. Students wrote a short quiz with 7 questions and 2 learning objectives. While self-marking, overheard comments were things like “I got 6 out of 7”, or “is this only 1/2 a mark off?”

Once presented with the SBG scheme, the usual silence ensued followed with the obligatory question “so by the end of the year, it’s possible for me to get 100%?”

The last 20 minutes of class was spent good over Bunsen burners with kids frantically trying to get a spark with their strikes. Press harder kids, press harder.
