1. Gender (Score: 1.0000)
There is a gender gap in physics uptake in schools, and it is something you need to be mindful of. If you have a friendly colleague available before your observation, you could ask them to watch you teach for a fixed time and keep a tally on how much time you spend with different students in your class.

2. Differentiation (Score: 1.0000)
Even a set class can have a wide range of abilities. Ensure that your questions are suitable to the range of abilities in your class and make sure that you have a little extension work up your sleeve.

3. Behaviour (Score: 1.0000)
Don’t be afraid of stopping teaching to deal with a behaviour issue. As long as you remain calm and consistent, adverse behaviour shouldn’t be detrimental to the outcome of your observation. The Institute is a charity registered in England and Wales (no. 293851) and Scotland (no. SC040092).

4. Pace (Score: 1.0000)
Estimating time can be tricky, especially when you are dealing with practical elements in a lesson. It can be very hard to judge how much time a class will take on an activity. The Institute is a charity registered in England and Wales (no. 293851) and Scotland (no. SC040092).

5. Questions (Score: 1.0000)
If you are unlucky enough to be observed by a non-science SMT member, the questions you ask and your response to the answers will enable you to highlight misconceptions at the beginning of a lesson and attainment during the plenary. Ensure that you are clear about the purpose of the questions you are asking, e.g. to promote discussion or to elicit understanding as part of AfL.

6. Equipment (Score: 1.0000)
If you don't have the luxury of a technician, make sure that you have previously set up your apparatus and tested that it all works. Don't rely on 'it was fine last time I used it'. The Institute is a charity registered in England and Wales (no. 293851) and Scotland (no. SC040092).

7. Focus (Score: 1.0000)
Almost all observations should have a focus which will usually tie in with the School Improvement Plan. Having said that, due care and consideration should be paid towards demonstrating the key focus for that lesson.

8. Planning (Score: 1.0000)
Additionally, include reference to subsequent lessons, as this will establish your viewpoint with regard to medium term planning and pupil progress. Many schools have a preferred lesson plan layout which you should use if at all possible (your head of department should have a copy). You may be required to give a copy to the observer before the scheduled lesson; if not, make sure that there is a copy available to show them.

9. Think like a physicist (Score: 1.0000)
Some physics teachers develop a coding system for their marking comments to reduce their workload. David Collyer, a physics teacher in Leeds, said, 'I often find myself saying the same things over and over again - underline headings, put units in results table headings etc. So I wrote a list of all the things that crop up and put them onto a PowerPoint loop.

10. Set homework that is efficient and effective (Score: 1.0000)
Tom Dawson, an IOP Teacher Network co-ordinator based in Shropshire, advises NQTs to' prioritise planning lesson content and developing teaching skills over marking. He points out that physics has many mathematical elements which can be easier to mark: ' “Homework designed to test understanding does not need to be marking-intensive.
