Science lessons must ‘engage students’

Given that the statutory part of the curriculum for drug education is in the science curriculum I thought that this from the NUT would be of interest:

Not enough students are being attracted to study science because of the methods used to teach the subject, it has been suggested.A new report from Ofsted has concluded that science lessons should become more stimulating for pupils.

The body stated that investigations formed by students will be more engaging than worksheets or teacher instruction, following its analysis of 90 primary and 105 secondary schools in England between 2004 and 2007.
