Diseases caused by protists - malaria lesson

Diseases caused by protists - malaria lesson

Written for AQA Trilogy GCSE. Focuses on the transmission of malaria. Slide 2 has a video link that makes a good starter for class discussion about malaria and death in the under 5’s. Slide 3 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slide 4 could be printed out for each student so that they have the necessary vocabulary and spellings needed for this lesson. Can then be used as the basis of a mind map during the lesson making links between the words. Slide 5 shows a simplified life cycle of the disease and has a video link to an animation to show this . The animation contains the names of the life cycle stages of the protist which are not needed at GCSE any more. If you think this may confuse your class, do not use the link. However I have found that most students are quite happy to know that there are words they don’t need to remember. Slides 6-7 are questions about malaria. Slides 8-9 are general questions about the diseases covered in this and previous lessons.

Diseases caused by fungi lesson

Diseases caused by fungi lesson

Written for AQA Trilogy GCSE. Focuses on athletes foot and rose black spot. Although the AQA specification only mentions rose black spot. ( I felt that it was important to know that fungal diseases occurred in humans as well as plants.) Slide 2 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slides 3-6 provide visual aid whilst you explain about the variety of fungal structures. Slide 7 gives extra information about rose black spot as I didn’t feel that the text book we use gave enough detail. Slide 8 answer all questions for each disease. (Red questions aimed at LAPS, green questions aimed at MAPS and purple at HAPS.) Slide 9 is an extra task that could be done as a homework.

Extra task could be set as a homework - Slide 6 sets a task to design an on-line leaflet giving advice on one of the diseases. Slides 7 & 8 show examples of what is currently available on-line, not very inspiring. Work sheet 2xA5 on one A4 sheet. Use two colours of highlighter pen, one for each disease.

Debates 101

Debates 101

This resource is for all in education, from KS1-5 and even at university level, it makes debating fun, accessible and has great impact. It includes a ready to use generic template, structured stages and prompts and some guidance for debating motions. It is useful because it is tried and tested, student, teacher and parent voice indicates that it makes a positive difference to learning and engagement. The learning objectives are skills based (empathy, listening, collaboration, research, collation, reflection, application, synthesis and presentation) as well as content driven as determined by the user’s choice although all debates usually improve an awareness of the social, economic and ethical aspects of an issue. The differentiation opportunities are vast, these can be either by outcome or role allocation (e.g. captains will develop their leadership skills and may be the more able in the group). As stated at the start, it is linked to all levels and types of curricula, standards and specifications. My tip is just to try it out!

AQA GCSE BIOLOGY/TRILOGY - Mastery Booklets for the 7 Teaching Topics

AQA GCSE BIOLOGY/TRILOGY - Mastery Booklets for the 7 Teaching Topics

I have put together ‘mastery booklets’ that can be used for independent study for pupils to use after a section of the course has been covered. They are designed (with past paper questions and the answers) for the students to complete themselves. This is to help them gain a deeper knowledge without impacting on teacher workload. All the teacher needs to do is record when the students have completed and annotated the booklet. I have split the 7 sections into the topics for the paper 1 and the paper 2. These could be used for cover work and revision before the exams. Hope they’re useful. Harret
