I have been teaching a number of years in a secondary state academy school. Teaching and learning is something very important to me and i strive to produce high quality resources. I have recently worked with a publication team for Pearson to design innovative resources for teachers teaching the new GCSE edexcel specification and have reviewed many A level specifications in partnership with them too. More resources will follow as i get started with the new specifications!

An 'outstanding' methods of training lesson to mirror AQA's new spec (but it can be used with other exam boards too).

Lesson plan

Photocopy the RPE sheet, training instructions and key information. Normally I do training instructions and key info back to back on A3 paper. Ignore the final few slides, as this has been removed from AQA.

Students arrive and complete the starter sheet. Great way to check prior knowledge and using different colours throughout the lesson clearly identifies progress.

Each student is then given a specific method to study for the lesson. Easily differentiated:

Less able - highlight key words/study less complex methods (continuous)/use of key words on worksheets
More able - study more complex methods (PNF/weight)/no key words on worksheets/extension questions on each sheet

Students follow the training instructions closely to gain an insight into a 'typical session'. Linking their effort to a RPE sheet leads onto the next topic of subjective assessment and this is nice way to include it and get students thinking about it.

Once they have completed their session they flip their sheets over and are given 3 questions that they must find the answer to in the information section. The questions are:

1) what is the definition of your MOT?
2) what does a typical session involve?
3) what factors should you consider when planning your session?

Whilst reading this information they highlight the answers to those questions using highlighter pens. Students who study PNF have a more complex task and need to study 'how' PNF actually works.

When students have completed their task, there is an optional extension task (QR code).

When all students have finished, the are now the 'experts' in their method and proceed on a carousel to teach their classmates about their method. Students then record this on the notes sheet (on A3). This typically will span 2, if not 3 lessons.

The PNF group have a tough job on their hands as it is a difficult concept. I have therefore included a powerpoint presentation that I put on my google drive, hyperlinked from my twitter account for students to access in their own time if they feel they need to read about this topic a little further.
