Currently selling and providing free resources for all three sciences, predominantly for GCSE, although there are some KS3 and A level chemistry resources available. Lots of the resources focus on differentiation and exam technique as I feel there is a profession- wide weakness in these areas.

New spec GCSE chemistry exam style questions starters (4) for rate of reaction (topic 6)

4 starters based on real exam questions and real responses as an Afl style activity. I have attempted to highlight the misconceptions and mixed concepts the students exhibit when answering exam questions. Based on AQA, but would work for other boards suggested uses: Use as a starter: students to select which they think is the best answer (quick starter), for a longer task, they are then to decide why the other answers are less than perfect This could be extended to take a whole lesson, if you use a number or all of the questions in the powerpoint and ask the students to come up with their own perfect answers, either in class or for homework; or 4 whole lessons, if you use the questions as a starter, go through the concepts and re-visit at the end of the lesson to see if the students have changed their minds. marking points and commentary on student answers are included.

Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson

Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson

This is a full lesson with prescriptive instructions, aimed at AQA and Edexcel specifications (references included), but would work for other boards. The main objectives are to research the information and to practice use of command words and general exam technique. The students are given exam style questions and in groups, are to research the information required to produce 'perfect answers' They then assess the answers given to different questions by others and make adjustments to the answers, as necessary. Exam questions are tailored to ability and there is a focus throughout on exam command words. The lesson ends with the students attempting to assign a grade to the exam questions they have been exposed to during the lesson and there is a suggested homework, where the students produce follow-up notes. Suggested 'indicative content' is included in the teacher notes, but are intended to guide the teacher, rather than for the students to compare given answers with. However, this could be used for this purpose, if you prefer. Also included is a slide that gives notes needed to answer the questions, if you are a bookless school. This may be projected up, depending on the layout of your classroom, or printed.
