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.

Physics Christmas song: stopping distances; forces introduction and not on the equation sheet

Physics Christmas song: stopping distances; forces introduction and not on the equation sheet

3 Christmas songs that I have used as a starter. complete with activities where the the students have to sing the missing words (even if they don't want to sing the whole thing) and check questions to check knowledge learnt. Aimed at GCSE but may be useful for KS3 also - particularly the forces one and the stopping distances one. objective: subject knowledge differentiation: the song activities are in 2 levels of difficulty and the 'not on the equation sheet' questions come with differentiated hints ideas for use: use a song as a starter and then the students are to create their own Christmas song based on the topic (or completely different topics, if you prefer), to be performed at the end of the lesson - KS3 are pretty good at this, GCSE tend to be shier. alternative (with GCSE in mind): students to make a quiz on the topic of the song to quiz other students at the end of the lesson. All questions must have a Christmas theme, e.g. Rudolf wants to re-paint his nose. Which salts of iron (III) could he use to make sure it wouldn't wash away in the rain (assuming he is resistant to iron toxicity)? NOTE: not every single equation is in the equation song - the ones that are not present are in the notes at the bottom of the first slide of the equations sheet song. The alternative activity here is for the students to make the next round that will include the missing equations.

9 Christmas songs for starter activities for physics, biology and Chemistry

9 Christmas songs for starter activities for physics, biology and Chemistry

3 for each science. Songs that I have used for starter activities so the students to then either write their own Christmas song (KS3) or to write quiz questions on the topic (with a Christmas theme) to test their fellow students at the end of the lesson. Each song has 2 activities where the students have to sing the missing words (if they don't want to sing the whole thing) and each song has some check questions. objective: subject knowledge differentiation: all songs differentiated to at least 2 levels of difficulty; physics calculation questions come with 2 levels of hint there is a recording of each song embedded in the slides - please excuse my singing and feel free to delete this part
