A Question of Sport

Description

Angela Sidgreaves teaches A-level sports science at Runshaw College in Leyland, Lancashire. In this programme, we see her take an AS-level class through some of the theoretical aspects of outdoor sports recreation.

During the class, the students cover a lot of ground, but the lesson is dominated by a traditional question and answer technique.

In a coaching session with head of department Russell Lawrence and a senior teacher, Angela is encouraged to take some risks and experiment with other questioning techniques. In a follow-up lesson, she tries three different approaches to questioning students:

  • A team-based quiz
  • Structured work sheets
  • The use of mini whiteboards

The variety works well and the students enjoy the lesson, but Angela feels she is taken out of her comfort zone and finds it more difficult than she expected.
