Good to Great Schools Australia’s range of ready-to-teach science lessons and resources are aligned to the Australian Curriculum. All lessons use explicit instruction and content that covers Australian perspectives and learning outcomes. Lessons are formulated based on scientific evidence of how students best learn and are further informed by the emerging discipline of cognitive science.

Get your students to fall in love with knowledge
Oz-e-science engages the natural curiosity of students and develops their love of science.
Rely on a strong evidence base for improving student outcomes Oz-e-science Years F-6
The Oz-e-science teaching approach draws on research that analyses the most effective teaching methods around the world. This research includes McKinsey & Company analysis of the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) that found the best performing education systems in the world use a blend of teacher-directed and inquiry-based instruction. The optimum balance preferences teacher-directed instruction while providing opportunities for inquiry learning.
Also, the internationally acclaimed research of Professor John Hattie on how different instructional strategies work better at different phases of learning. Oz-e-science identifies the three phases and gets the timing right for using different teaching strategies.
