https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it! My style of teaching isn’t for everyone, I’m a dyslexic teacher who’s heard it all, my lessons are all catered towards accessibility (because if they were not I’d never be able to read them myself). Everything is short sharp and to the point, I don’t believe in endless writing, reams of printing, spoon feeding diagrams or pointless activities. Every minute matters! Be sure to check out all my other resources, as a personal goal I intend to share all my resources at least once because hey, the government isn’t going to make it easier and we both know you are reading this way outside of your work hours. Enjoy, comment or rate if you can, but most of all hang in there, they need you way more than you realise!

A Level Biology Plant Transport - 4 Lesson Series

A Level Biology Plant Transport - 4 Lesson Series

This slide pack provides resources for 3 - 4 lessons, including plant transport challenge activities, key definitions and exam questions with markschemes to check understanding. Designed to meet the updated AQA Biology A Level syllabus. However, could also be used for extension work for younger groups. Learning objectives: Describe transport of water and organic substances in the plant Explain how to investigate transport experimentally, and interpret data from these experiments Evaluate evidence for and against the mass flow hypothesis What is covered in terms of outcomes?: The xylem is the tissue that transports water in the stem and leaves of plants. The cohesion-tension theory of water transport in the xylem. The phloem is the tissue that transports organic substances in plants. The mass flow hypothesis (for the mechanism of translocation in plants). The use of tracers and ringing experiments to investigate transport in plants, and how to interpret evidence from such experiments How to evaluate the evidence for and against the mass flow hypothesis. How a potometer may be used to investigate the effect of a named environmental variable on the rate of transpiration The practical planning works well as a homework. Students can then experiment with the potometers in the final lesson of the series.

Biology Digestion Lesson

Biology Digestion Lesson

This is a lesson designed for AQA A Level Biology (although can easily be used for a high ability GCSE group). Objectives: Describe how proteins, carbohydrates and lipids may be digested Explain mechanisms for the absorption of the products of digestion, by cells lining the ileum of mammals Suggest how digestion may be modelled experimentally The lesson is designed to be used across two double lessons (plus homework, to plan practical approach). You can use the challenge cards to target different individuals, depending upon their previous knowledge.

Genetic Inheritance

Genetic Inheritance

(Apologies if the previews are faded colour or text, TES servers are having issues) Fully guided lesson that I delivered to year 9 and 10 for observations. Can be tailored for KS3 if needed. Friendly starter on matching parents to remind students of inherting factors. Using celebrities to engage students, the lesson leads through pheno and genotypes and the differences. Animations of gametes seperating allows the learners to follow the step by step process of how genes are inherted. Worksheets provided (differentiated) to allow students to attempt to calculate probability of children gaining eye colour. Introduces heterozygous and homozygous genes in context. Plenary is exam style question and homework supplied if needed.
