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

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

Monoclonal antibodies

An engaging lesson presentation (32 slides) and differentiated worksheets that look at the meaning of the substances termed monoclonal antibodies, explains how they are produced and explores their different applications. The lesson begins by breaking the term down into three parts so that students can understand that these substances are proteins that attach to antigens and come from a single clone of cells. Students will meet key terms such as lymphocytes, myelomas and hybridomas and will be able to link them to understand how these antibodies are produced. Moving forwards, time is taken to focus on the application of monoclonal antibodies in pregnancy tests. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding and a set homework is included as part of the lesson. This lesson has been written for GCSE students but can be used with lower ability A-level students who are studying this topic
