FLIPPED LEARNING: Food Tests

FLIPPED LEARNING: Food Tests

This is a full flipped learning lesson plan with all accompanying resources included (or linked to if they are online). The worksheet provides the quick link to the Science Sauce website where the self-study materials are found, and the Teacher sheet contains a full lesson instructions. WHAT IS FLIPPED LEARNING? Flipped learning requires students to learn the main content before class (often via an online video) and then do the "homework" in class with the teacher's support. The in-class tasks can be very creative and will generally be more student-centred and allow for more student engagement. (Learn more at http://sciencesauceonline.com/flipped-learning/).

Plant diseases

Plant diseases

A really engaging and detailed lesson presentation (44 slides) and associated differentiated worksheets that looks at communicable diseases in plants and challenges students to diagnose these diseases in plants. During the lesson the students will take on the role of the "Treeage" (triage) nurse and have to direct each plant to the correct ward in the "CASUATREE" according to the pathogen which has infected them. They will also have to explain how the symptoms which they have identified were caused and explain the future for this plant, during their time as the "Tree surgeon". The three diseases included in the lesson are tobacco mosaic virus, crown gall disease and powdery mildew disease. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding and there is a set homework included as part of the lesson. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but is also suitable for A-level students looking at the communicable diseases topic

OCR Gateway A GCSE Biology Module B6: Global challenges

OCR Gateway A GCSE Biology Module B6: Global challenges

This bundle of 15 lesson presentations and associated worksheets cover the majority of the key specification content found within Module B6 (Global challenges) of the new OCR Gateway A GCSE Biology specification. The lesson presentations cover the majority of the content within the following teaching points: B6.1-Monitoring and maintaining the environment Sampling techniques Loss of biodiversity Increasing biodiversity B6.2-Feeding the human race Selective breeding Genetic engineering Producing a GMO B6.3-Monitoring and maintaining health Health and disease Spread of communicable disease Preventing the spread Human infections Blood and body defence mechanisms Monoclonal antibodies Vaccinations Prevention and treatment of disease New medicines B6.4-Non-communicable diseases Non-communicable diseases Treating cardiovascular disease All of the lessons are detailed, engaging and differentiated and contain regular progress checks so that students can assess their understanding. It is estimated that this bundle would cover up to 2 month's worth of lessons

Developing drugs (medicines)

Developing drugs (medicines)

An engaging and detailed lesson presentation (35 slides) that looks at each of the steps involved in developing a drug, from suggested compounds on a computer model to being prescribed by doctors. The lesson begins by checking that the students recognise the definition of a drug and some time is taken to look at the money that the NHS puts into prescribed drugs in the UK. Moving forwards, the details of each stage are explored including preclinical trials, animal testing and clinical trials. Time is taken to discuss why certain animals are chosen for the testing and the different groups of humans that are involved. The students will meet key terms such as placebo and will be introduced to the ideas of single and double-blind trials. There are progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but is perfectly suitable for KS3 students too

9-1 GCSE Enzyme introduction

9-1 GCSE Enzyme introduction

I have produced this lesson/PPT to allow students to discover the properties of enzymes. There are lots of timed activities where students can do a little research using their text books. This can then be checked at certain "check points" and there is a little bit of teacher led discussion. I have included a video from TedEd about what speeds up reactions to link into collision theory. I plan to discuss in more detail the factors that affect enzyme reactions next lesson and introduce practical work.

GCSE (9-1) Automated Progress Tracking and Analysis Spreadsheet

GCSE (9-1) Automated Progress Tracking and Analysis Spreadsheet

If, like I was, you are fed up with analysing data manually, this spreadsheet is for you. Originally created for my science department and then rolled out whole-school, this GCSE progress tracking spreadsheet will save you hours of analysing, putting relevant data right at your fingertips within seconds of assessments being graded. Use is easy - once the initial population of student data (lifted straight from an export from your school's data system) is done, the only data that needs to be entered is the grades for each assessment/homework/piece of work. You can use grades 1-9, but plus and minus subgrades are catered for too. Colour coded cells automatically show progress (above or below target grade) and the sheet does all the analysis for you, producing a data table detailing the following: - progress & attainment of Low, Middle and High Prior Attainment (KS2) - progress & attainment of girls vs boys - progress & attainment of SEND vs non-SEND, Pupil premium vs non Pupil Premium and EAL vs non EAL. - progress & attainment of individual classes or teachers - progress & attainment of the whole cohort For demonstrating progress and attainment over time, the graph tab provides four line graphs detailing the following: - percentage of work completed/submitted - percentage of students achieving grade 5 + - percentage of students meeting targets - percentage of students exceeding targets You can filter each column and the analysis table and graphs will automatically update. For example, perhaps you want to look at how pupil premium boys with low prior attainment are performing in your subject? Colleagues have used it with great success in department meetings, leadership meetings, appraisal meetings, performance management and even with inspectors. Only the white cells are editable, the others are locked and the sheets are password protected (PW is 2016) to avoid any accidental changes to the formulae.

Treating CVD

Treating CVD

An engaging lesson presentation (30 slides) that looks at the different methods that are used to treat cardiovascular diseases. The lesson begins by looking at the surgical procedure of heart bypass before exploring the use of stents to widen a partially blocked artery. Links are made back to previous knowledge when discussing valves and students are challenged to explain why a faulty valve must be replaced. The rest of the lesson focusses on treating CVD with medicines such as statins and antiplatelets and students will learn the side-effects associated with these drugs. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but is suitable for all ages
