We had a Physics inspection last year which involved putting together a Subject plan (not that it didn’t exist previously of course, but you know what I mean). It did take quite a bit of time and it occurred to me that, given that most schools in the country offer Physics as a subject, it would make sense to those who have yet to create their own to see one which is already in existence.
It is of course not the definitive article but nevertheless should prove particulary useful to both new teachers and those who have been ‘drafted in’ from other subjects to teach Physics.
Feel free to incorporate as much or as little of it as you like; if I make any major changes I will let you know via the blog or twitter.
The plan itself can be accessed directly from here or from the homepage of thephysicsteacher.ie
Feel free to offer constructive critisism 🙂
I hope to get around to producing something similar for Applied Maths at a later stage.
Wouldn’t it be nice if every department in every school had to put their subject plans online – I’m sure it would be appreciated by parents who are looking to decide what school to send their children to.
