Memorising Respiration - A2 Biology

(12)
A2 Biology Respiration - written as a list of reactions and then again as a silly story for students to draw as a cartoon or just memorise. Using this technique I have had students be able to memorise and then recite every part of respiration from glycolysis to the electron transport chain under an hour. It takes a bit of a leap of faith to try it, but it has worked well for me. Let me know if you need any help. Pete

Hexagon key word link activity sheet

Great resource to support student understanding of key words, phrases, numbers, equations, literary characters...etc. Students place a different key word/phrase etc from your topic in each of the 7 hexagons. In the grid below, student's explain how each word is linked to the one next to it, e.g. for “A” you would explain how the word in the centre hexagon links to the word in the top hexagon.

Building on Ross McGill's 5 minute lesson plan, the EAL plan is designed to reduce planning time & focus on learning for EAL students. It includes "Model Phrases" - What do you want your EAL learners to be able to say? Please tweet me for any advice or with any questions @LessonToolbox or see my blog lessontoolbox.wordpress.com.

Starter/Plenary exit ticket-type activity which asks students to write a tweet, in 140 characters or less, about 'today’s topic'. Very popular and effective with my classes. You get some great hashtags which link to the learning. Enjoy :)

AQA Trilogy Physics (Foundation) - Forces 6.5.1-6.5.3 "Prove it" PLC & Answers

(1)
I have adapted the PiXL personal learning checklist (PLC) so that the statements are student-friendly questions and the tick boxes have been enlarged for students to prove that they understand the concept by filling the box with diagrams or descriptions. I get students to fill this in as they go through the topic to check understanding and use the answers to self-mark them before they do the end of topic test. SEN or absent students can get a copy of the answers to annotate. Check out my account for other topics.
