‘A Level Law Offences Against the Person Act 1861’ is a superb teaching resource for all law teachers since it covers the AQA, OCR and WJEC AS and A2 specifications for this topic. It also provides the opportunity to differentiate your students' learning and allow you to accommodate their individual learning styles. For flexibility and ease of use, these materials are divided into two separate sections.
Section A contains 21 detailed case notes which cover the entire syllabus on wounding, actual and grievous bodily harm. On the reverse of each of these A4 case notes is a worksheet with questions and discussion points to help stimulate deeper understanding of the points of law involved and to develop your student's critical analysis skills. These can be photocopied for your students to keep as a valuable resource. Section B contains a large number of differentiated class activities, all of which use precisely the same short sharp statements of facts and points of law. This allows teachers to rotate activities to help cement understanding and recall. Here, there are four types of activities - crosswords, gap fills, word searches and dominoes exercises, all with answer sheets which can either be printed or projected onto a whiteboard.
Overall, this book has over 100 pages of materials to help deliver highly effective lessons on the topic of elements of crime using a variety of different learning methods. Indeed, by having four different methods to help students learn the facts and points of law of case, teachers can offer impressive opportunities for classroom differentiation. Your students will be delighted to have access to these clear, helpful and high quality resources.
