Consulting pupils about teaching and learning
Decades of calls for educational reform have not succeeded in making schools places where all young people want to and are able to learn. It is time to invite students to join the conversations about how we might accomplish that. (Cook-Sather, 2002) Consultation is about responding to that situation – about understanding what learning is like from the pupil perspective and trying to get bits of it better for different pupils and different groups of pupils. The Project was designed to re

In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,This segment shows the interviewer trying to probe for whether the student attributes the same macroscopic properties of substances to atoms. He asks if the atoms of aluminum would be bendable and shiny like the foil.
