This blog has been set up as a response to the materials that Truth In Science sent to all UK schools and Colleges in September 2006. The material contains misleading claims that it is suitable for, and in fact part of, the national Curriculum.
This blog has developed over time as an analysis of these claims and the material itself.
If you read the posts in posting/date order you will get a complete picture of the false claims made on the TiS homepage, the DVDs and the teachers manual sent out to schools.
If you are worried about this material being used in your school then check out this entry with suggestions on what to do;
If the local school are using it then please let me know what they say.
In this case the next step would be to approach the local education authority to bring it to their attention. TiS claim that several dozen schools are using this material but have refused to name them.
The DVDs sent out are analysed here.
The TiS letter accompanying materials is analysed in two consecutive posts starting with this.The "teachers manual" from the DVD pack is analysed line by line in several consecutive posts starting here.
I have now started to analyse the "lesson plans" on the TiS website here.Suggested letter for your use is here.
