For my interview to got onto the SCITT I had to prepare 10 minutes of teaching, revising the topic of ‘Semi-Conservative DNA replication’ to a class of year 12 students. For tips to help with your teaching practice please click here
I decided to create a game of catchphrase. I am lucky in that I have my own business, creating interactive teaching resources, so was fairly confident that I would be able to use the software to create a game board…I just had to figure out how.
I have designed the board so that it isn’t topic specific, and can be used for any biology related revision quiz. You just need to provide the questions!
The idea is that you ask the class a question, the person who answers it correctly gets to choose a square to remove. As each square is removed, more of the hidden picture is revealed. The picture represents a biology related catchphrase. The student who guesses the catchphrase first is the winner…prizes are optional!
