Digital Markbook for AQA Science

Digital Markbook for AQA Science

I have created and have been using for a number of years this digital markbook. Every teacher in my department use this on a lesson by lesson basis for KS4 and topic by topic basis for KS3; we use these in relation to the personal learning checklists (another of my uploads). This way of tracking progress has been invaluable in guiding the revision of my students, focusing them on the specific areas for their development. It is a simple process of entering R, A or G based on whatever criterion you decide works best for you

NEW AQA GCSE Biology (2016) - Using plant hormones HT

NEW AQA GCSE Biology (2016) - Using plant hormones HT

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Homeostasis' SoW and for higher tier pupils. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience Pupils will firstly be introduced to two further hormones in addition to auxin: gibberellins and ethene. The first task is for pupils to watch a video on the role of auxins and gibberellins in plant growth and development. Pupils will answer questions whilst watching the video and then self-assess their work using the mark scheme provided. Once pupils understand how gibberellins and auxins work they are asked to think > pair > share how these two hormones might be utilised by farmers/gardeners to help increase yield. Pupils can come up with a mind map in their books of their ideas. The next activity is another video, this one is on the uses of hormones in horticulture and agriculture. Pupils are asked to answer questions whilst watching the video, this work can again be self-assessed using the mark scheme provided. Pupils will then be given an information sheet on plant hormones, outlining further roles of auxin and gibberellins and also the role of ethene. Pupils will need to answer questions using this information. The final activity is a true/false task on the topics of plant hormones. The plenary task is for pupils to write a text message to their friends outlining what they have learnt this lesson. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

NEW AQA GCSE Biology (2016) - Plant hormones & responses HT

NEW AQA GCSE Biology (2016) - Plant hormones & responses HT

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Homeostasis' SoW and for higher tier pupils. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins with an outline of the sorts of stimuli that plants response to - light, moisture & gravity - pupils are asked to think > pair > share why they think that it is important that plants respond to these stimuli. Pupils are then introduced to the term 'tropism' and are shown the sort of tropisms plants undergo due to light and gravity. Pupils will then watch a video on this topic and will need to answer questions whilst watching, this work can then be self-assessed once they have finished the video. Pupils will then be provided with posters of information which outlines the role of auxins during phototropism and gravitropism, using this information pupils will need to complete tasks on their worksheet. Once this task has been completed pupils can either self or peer-assess their work using the mark scheme provided. The final activity is an exam-style question which pupils should complete in silence and as an extra challenge they could try and complete it in the back of their books, not using any notes from the lesson. The work can then be self-assessed using the mark scheme provided. The plenary task is for pupils to summarise what they have learnt in three sentences, using the list of key words provided. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

KS3 Science Revision (List of topics; PPT)

KS3 Science Revision (List of topics; PPT)

List of traditional KS3 Science topics together with 2 PPTs in which each heading on the list has a slide summarising the topic/concept. I use it to help Year 9 pupils prepare for their end-of-year exam. Probably too big to print out, but perfect to send to pupils over e-mail or put on a shared area or VLE.

https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it! My style of teaching isn’t for everyone, I’m a dyslexic teacher who’s heard it all, my lessons are all catered towards accessibility (because if they were not I’d never be able to read them myself). Everything is short sharp and to the point, I don’t believe in endless writing, reams of printing, spoon feeding diagrams or pointless activities. Every minute matters! Be sure to check out all my other resources, as a personal goal I intend to share all my resources at least once because hey, the government isn’t going to make it easier and we both know you are reading this way outside of your work hours. Enjoy, comment or rate if you can, but most of all hang in there, they need you way more than you realise!
