I have written this for the AQA Combined Science GCSE to teach the key concepts of natural selection, inheritance, molecular genetics and genetic engineering in a whole day masterclass session (although it can easily be broken down into individual lessons). I wrote this as a way to embed these key ideas in a short period of time.
In each section there are some key ideas that are fed in to develop scientific understanding and there are links to new each section where they need to apply the ideas learnt. There are also some ‘aside’ topics that will help with general scientific understanding.
It includes a lesson powerpoint (with full notes) and an accompanying workbook that students can complete as the session progresses which contain a variety of tasks from making simple notes, ‘let’s think’ activities and some practice exam questions at the end.
