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.

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

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

(1)
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.

Groups work where students build a model of what happens at the electrodes, in stages, and then photographs each stage (example included at the end of the PowerPoint). This is to help them visualise how to build half equations.The student writes up their work, using their photographs, for homework. I got my students to put their home work on a revision card for them to keep for mocks and GCSE. The lesson and resources are differentiated to three levels of difficulty.
