#### WJEC Eduqas A Level Physics (from 2015) - complete scheme of work incl. 288 resources

(0)
Work Less. Teach Smart. We all talk about not re-inventing the wheel. BUT we LIKE making our own resources - right? Picture the scene… QUESTION: It’s 6pm Wednesday night and you have plans at 7pm with friends/kids. Is it worth re-inventing the wheel at this stage? Is it worth writing a bespoke resource for you class tomorrow? Are they REALLY going to get the extra value from that resource that you have slaved over? **ANSWER: **It’s NOT WORTH IT. There are times when you are going to need to prioritise other stuff over lesson planning. You need something reliable and fast. This is the time you use your Guzled WJEC Eduqas A-Level scheme of work. You will have 280+ resources that you can simply download and use. No thinking. Just work less. Teach smart. Are you teaching the WJEC Eduqas A Level Physics specification? This download includes 288 resources covering the breadth of the whole course. Mapped exactly to the WJEC Eduqas specification, you’ll find the following types of resources covering most learning objectives: Lesson plans Powerpoints Question sheets and solutions Practicals (and sample write-ups) Starter activities Resources are provided in pdf format with instructions on how to convert to Word and allow editing. Testimonials &quot;Keep up the good work - you are providing an excellent service&quot; (Chris Beason, St. Thomas More Catholic School) &quot;I think Guzled is by far the best A-Level Physics resource out there, and would always be happy to recommend it to anyone. I have a few young members of staff who are new to teaching A-Level, and it is hard to out into words how easy and pain-free you have made their lives (and by extension mine!).&quot; David Rowley, The Duchess Community High School &quot;Guzled is a fantastic resource providing an excellent resource based for the breadth of the A-Level WJEC course. We have found the resources extremely useful in guiding our teaching of the key topics and the supplementary questions and answers are an excellent and efficient way of assessing the understanding of students. We have found Guzled to be extremely good value for money given the use we have made of the resources&quot; (Ian Hanley, Whitgift School)
