Metabolism - AQA 9-1 GCSE Biology

Metabolism - AQA 9-1 GCSE Biology

A full lesson more aimed at higher ability students due to the amount of detail covered beyond the spec in places, to give a further understanding. The lesson includes a starter, presentation, research sheets & past paper Qs, as well as levelled RAG tasks throughout. The lesson could be accompanied by iPads/computer suite, but the research sheets for the task are all there, along with the table for students to complete.

Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson

Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson

This is a full lesson with prescriptive instructions, aimed at AQA and Edexcel specifications (references included), but would work for other boards. The main objectives are to research the information and to practice use of command words and general exam technique. The students are given exam style questions and in groups, are to research the information required to produce 'perfect answers' They then assess the answers given to different questions by others and make adjustments to the answers, as necessary. Exam questions are tailored to ability and there is a focus throughout on exam command words. The lesson ends with the students attempting to assign a grade to the exam questions they have been exposed to during the lesson and there is a suggested homework, where the students produce follow-up notes. Suggested 'indicative content' is included in the teacher notes, but are intended to guide the teacher, rather than for the students to compare given answers with. However, this could be used for this purpose, if you prefer. Also included is a slide that gives notes needed to answer the questions, if you are a bookless school. This may be projected up, depending on the layout of your classroom, or printed.
