Antibiotics

Antibiotics

An engaging lesson presentation and associated worksheet that looks at the use of antibiotics to treat bacterial infections and the raises the issue of the potential over-use of these substances. The lesson begins by getting the students to recognise the difference between three key terms that begin with anti (antibiotics, antivirals, antiseptics). Students will be introduced to the idea that antibiotics are specific to a small range of bacteria and therefore the correct one has to be selected before being prescribed. Moving forwards, students will meet the idea of the zone of inhibition and will understand how the size of this zone can be used as an indicator to the effectiveness of the treatment. Students are shown how to calculate the size of the zone and then are tested on their ability to apply this mathemetical knowledge. Finally, time is taken to look at the links to the topic of natural selection to explain how some bacteria are resistant to certain antibiotics. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used as an introduction with A-level Biology students who are about to begin the topic of immunity.

Reflex arc & ruler drop practical lesson

Reflex arc & ruler drop practical lesson

This is preparation for the Reaction time required practical in AQA GCSE Trilogy. Slide 2 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slide 3 provides the key words for the lesson. Can simply be a visual aid to introduce the vocabulary. I tend to print this slide off for individuals in the class who would benefit from their own copy and for TAs. More able students use this as a basis for a mind map to make links between key words. Slide 4 is a picture diagram of a reflex arc. Slide 5 shows a simplified version of previous slide with questions to answer. Differentiate by number of examples given in Q4. Slide 6 is a fill in the gaps cloze. Slide 7 inserts the answers to slide 6. Slide 8 shows a synapse. Slide 9 gives details of each neurone. Slide 10 is a literacy activity. Slide 11 - instructions for a simple ruler drop test. This is a short practical so that students understand what to do for the Required practical next lesson. Slide 12 - Plenary Two sheets supplied one has the diagrams and the other has the questions and cloze. I include these simply because I find them useful for particular students with my mixed ability classes. If I know a particular student makes a meal of using glue, I will print directly onto labels for them. I keep a supply of 4 labels to a page for this purpose.

Debates 101

Debates 101

This resource is for all in education, from KS1-5 and even at university level, it makes debating fun, accessible and has great impact. It includes a ready to use generic template, structured stages and prompts and some guidance for debating motions. It is useful because it is tried and tested, student, teacher and parent voice indicates that it makes a positive difference to learning and engagement. The learning objectives are skills based (empathy, listening, collaboration, research, collation, reflection, application, synthesis and presentation) as well as content driven as determined by the user’s choice although all debates usually improve an awareness of the social, economic and ethical aspects of an issue. The differentiation opportunities are vast, these can be either by outcome or role allocation (e.g. captains will develop their leadership skills and may be the more able in the group). As stated at the start, it is linked to all levels and types of curricula, standards and specifications. My tip is just to try it out!

AQA GCSE BIOLOGY/TRILOGY - Mastery Booklets for the 7 Teaching Topics

AQA GCSE BIOLOGY/TRILOGY - Mastery Booklets for the 7 Teaching Topics

I have put together ‘mastery booklets’ that can be used for independent study for pupils to use after a section of the course has been covered. They are designed (with past paper questions and the answers) for the students to complete themselves. This is to help them gain a deeper knowledge without impacting on teacher workload. All the teacher needs to do is record when the students have completed and annotated the booklet. I have split the 7 sections into the topics for the paper 1 and the paper 2. These could be used for cover work and revision before the exams. Hope they’re useful. Harret

Gas Exchange in different Organisms

Gas Exchange in different Organisms

Differentiated lessons with stretch tasks designed around the game “would you rather” in which pupils independently research 3 different methods of gas exchange (Gills, Spiricles, Amphibian system) and create an argument to support one they would rather use. Its a bit of fun for an otherwise boring topic. My year 8’s loved it. Differentiated worksheet for lower ability. Research information sheets included in the powerpoint.
