The teacher emphasises the need to think about how students will engage with the curriculum at the lesson planning stage. This allows her to plan for and implement teaching strategies that are relevant to her students' interests, abilities and developmental stage. In her year 10 Science class she uses analogy, group work and a practical class to teach Newton's Third Law. At a more senior level, she introduces and uses adult learning principles to support her Food and Hospitality students in a summative assessment.
