Curriculum for Excellence * Classroom Visit * S2 Biology

We're all for classroom observations. Teachers all over the school are visiting each others classrooms. I had the great pleasure of observing Mr. Angus Thorburn perform a live dissection of a sheep's [we think] lungs and heart. Not having studied biology at school I'd only ever seen this kind of thing on television. Gunther von Hagens!

 

Anyway Mr. Thorburn even had me chanting out the answers 'Jeopardy' style at the end of the class. All the pupils seemed to know the answers. Some very technical language too. CfE literacy indeed. Very illuminating, entertaining and educational.

 

Thanks for the invitation.

 

He's coming to my class on Thursday!
