My ISA Handbook AQA science controlled assessment

My ISA Handbook AQA science controlled assessment

This handbook is intended to prepare students for the challenges of a science controlled assessment through a range of activities that can be completed independently or in class. It includes a 'student speak' glossary and lots of challenging oppotunities for assessment for learning before you begin an ISA. It aims to provide an independent learning opportunity that reduces the amount of class time you need to spend on an ISA. Word file now added so you can customise to suit your centre.

KS3 Physics - Electricity Resource Pack, Ciruits, Current, Voltage, Electric Components

Get £3 FREE to use in my shop. Enter code MEGA-MARCH at www.tes.com/redeem**This resource has been recommended by the TES Resource Team** *UPDATED JANUARY 2017* Added a crossword puzzle with answers.This resource pack will get your learners thinking about electricity and electric circuits. It includes:• A lucid and logical 69-slide PowerPoint which includes many visual aids. The slides are thoughtfully animated (not over-animated) to allow opportunities for learners to participate and promote class discussions.• Seven pages of interactive notes (scaffolded notes). These notes fit perfectly with the presentation. I find this activity keeps lower-level students engaged during the lessons while allowing differentiation for higher achievers. • A crossword (with answers), some homework questions and a quiz.**Just print and go! Or customize to fit the needs of your class.**Learning objectives covered in this resources are listed below.• By the end of these lessons, pupils should know:1. that electricity is a form of energy.2. that current electricity can be produced from cells, batteries or the mains3. that there are a range of appliances in the home, which use electricity.4. that we can represent components by symbols. 5. that current electricity flows in conductors but not in insulators.6. that a complete path is needed from one side of the battery to the other for electricity to flow.7. how a switch works.8. that there are two types of circuit, series and parallel.9. that current is measured in Amps. 10. that current is measured using an ammeter. 11. how to connect and use an ammeter.12. that in a series circuit, the current is the same all the way round the circuit.13. that in a parallel circuit, the current is shared but not lost or used up. 14. that the current in a series circuit depends upon the number and type of components used. 15. that a battery is a store of electrical energy.16. that voltage is a measure of the amount of energy or push given to the current.17. that more cells in series equals more voltage. 18. that the effect of voltage upon current and bulb brightness.19. that an electric current causes a wire to become hot. .20. that the bigger the current, the higher the temperature of the wire.21. that if too much current flows, the wire will melt.Hope you find it useful. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Automated WWW / EBI feedback sheets for summative assessments

Automated WWW / EBI feedback sheets for summative assessments

This resource can be adapted for any subject area at any key stage. It calculates progress between 2 data points, enables teachers to write personalised comments with space for a student response and it also has 5 what went well (WWW) and even better if (EBI) comments as well. Finally, there is a pupil response section for students to show progress from the EBI comments. I would advise departments to create the comments through collaboration so there is consistency (MFL comments are currently being used to demonstrate how the feedback sheet works). Teachers complete the data entry section using these codes and then 2 feedback sheets per A4 page are generated for up to 40 students. All teachers have to do is print, cut and give the sheets to the students to stick in. I have attached a guide to explain how to use it.Over the years, I developed marking codes because I found myself hand writing the same feedback over and over again which seemed inefficient. Plus, there was no guarantee the students read it. So I killed 2 birds with 1 stone by just writing abbreviated codes and asking students to write the extended feedback from a sheet, thereby guaranteeing they had at least read it. They would then respond to the feedback as well. Whilst conducting an internal marking review, a colleague pointed out that students were wasting time by copying 3 or 4 targets which certainly didn't promote deeper thinking. This new tool now combines the best of both worlds because I am not writing long (often illegible) comments. Instead, students are focused on reading the comments and using the time to reflect and extend their learning by responding to the teacher feedback.

An introduction to the Periodic Table  - New 2016 GCSE Chemistry

An introduction to the Periodic Table - New 2016 GCSE Chemistry

A fully resourced lesson starts with a word search to find elements from the Periodic Table. A quick recap of information students may be aware of from KS3 before discussing groups and periods. There is a colouring activity to label various sections of a Periodic Table that is then used to complete a group activity. A series of questions to challenge understanding is used to secure knowledge before a plenary that ask students to try and talk for as long as possible about what they have learnt about the Periodic Table

B2, C2 and P2: AQA Core 2017 Exam Support.

B2, C2 and P2: AQA Core 2017 Exam Support.

All spec codes must be examined through a three year period with AQA exams. This is a spec code frequency analysis of 2015-16 exams for both foundation and higher exam papers leading to very specific lesson focus and pupil revision. It highlights spec codes that HAVE NOT appeared in the last two years leading to a very high probability of them appearing in summer 2017. This tool has analysed 2016 and 2015 exam papers and completed a frequency count of each lettered spec code. This summarises into a combined table to prepare for the 2017 exams. It highlights lettered spec codes that have not been assessed in the last two years by showing as green. Being the last year of AQA Additional exams before the 1-9 exams there is a very high probability of possible topics that will appear in the summer exams. It colours through a spectrum of red to green, of other specs which have been assessed, but infrequently. It shows this by a simple count and relative frequency to the number of spec codes. The relative analysis tool shows how common it has appeared in the last two years relative to the number of spec points. A low spec count could still have a high relative count showing a lower probability. There is also a combined summary for F and H papers if you teach mixed groups. Each analyse is shown graphically leading to easy displays for pupils to review key areas to focus. On following tabs there is a full spec checklist filterable by their appearance in either F, H or both so pupils can view this information in a checklist explaining each spec point. This has then lead to a checklist revision list for both F and H papers. A F and H revision pack is then included with past exam question specifically themed on these areas to help support and lead revision up to the summer exams. Mark schemes and examiners reports are included for these questions. The aim of the support pack is to help prepare for the summer exams of 2017. This is a very unique situation where we can have a good chance of using this analyse to target revision and focus the pupils.
