All lessons are developed with differentiation, assessment/challenge as well as engagement entrenched heavily within all my resources. Moreover, constant reference is made throughout to the selected Examiner Media forms and is clearly laid out so that students quickly become accustomed to which forms fall under which section of each Component/ Exam ).
