Walaa Abu Al-Ezz is a physics teacher in Jordan’s Al-Rusaifa directorate that took part in the Canada led Science Network program at the Queen Rania Teacher Academy. Through the Scaling up Professional Development of Teachers program, she learned successful strategies to inspire male students’ interest in science.

Although her students had weaknesses in writing and were reluctant to study science, Walaa applied strategies to motivate her students to love physics and integrate it into their daily lives. For example, Walaa helped her students learn physics by applying supportive strategies in teaching and formative education and by using scientific inquiry with her students. She treated them as young scientists exploring the natural sciences linked to their everyday life and to the environment they live in.
