AQA GCSE Biology Unit 2 (Organisation) Complete Power Points

AQA GCSE Biology Unit 2 (Organisation) Complete Power Points

This power point contains an entire scheme of work for AQA unit 2. My previous GCSE packs were tailored to Edexcel - this is AQA specific - however there is a little cross-over between the 2 and I have reused previous lessons where appropriate - just tweaked it to fit the AQA spec. Again some worksheets are downloaded from Kaboodle so I don't have the rights to include them + exam practice questions are from exam pro, however where I have made my own they are included. I've also included my guide to the numbering, which includes lesson titles + prac info.

Imaginative Writing SOW - The Supernatural, Sinister and the Downright Scary Unit - 20 Lessons!

This is a 20-lesson unit on imaginative writing, originally designed for Year 9 students. It contains a full Scheme of Work, plus homework menu and accompanying anthology of short stories. Each lesson is complete with PowerPoint and any necessary resources. This is a highly differentiated and organised resource with focus on extending the links between reading and writing. There are two assessment points (baseline and final) plus various extended writing opportunities throughout. This has been incredibly successful at my school and has achieved fantastic results in improving students' writing. I hope you enjoy teaching it as much as I enjoyed making it!
