Discussion and Supporting Materials

Thought starters

  1. What strategies were used to refocus Kyane during the investigation?
  2. What did you notice about Kyanes role in his group and his involvement during the investigation?
  3. How did Kyane explain his learning after the lesson?
  4. What does this demonstrate?

Tried to give Kyane specific roles during the group work to support him in his learning and participation.

Hi, I found this interesting, as we have similar investigations for our sixth graders in the unit of Forces and Safety. Our main goal is to explain the use of ramps to increase or reduce friction force and relate it to safety of car/ motor racing.

Very interesting concepts. Team roles should have been established prior to the investigations. All students should have been focused on the initial instructions instead of the materials. The follow-up with the student at the end was beneficial in that it showed that learning had taken placed. The concept can be extended and used in Algebra 1.

    At Erdington Hall Primary School in Birmingham, Kyane, a Year 4 pupil following an individual behaviour plan and an individual educational plan, is examined during a science lesson on friction.

    Kyane is often behind with school work due to regular absence thorough asthma. Despite relating well with his male teacher Mr Khalil, he often finds it difficult to concentrate on the task being set.

    The pupils work in groups to investigate friction using model vehicles, ramps and various textured surfaces, measuring the distance each surface allows the vehicle to travel.

    Kyane seems engaged for the most part, but finds the team work challenging. He later admits to being occasionally bored, but is able to explain much of the science he has been taught.
