CB8c Edexcel - The heart

(3)
The lesson starts with a short recall quiz before introducing the idea of the heart via and independent research task. After this it is a good opportunity to do a dissection and get the students to annotate on the heart print out the key component of the heart. The lesson then moves to calculate stroke volume and do some graph interpretation of that.

More lessons in the series are available on my premium resources - ScienceMastery The lesson starts with a series of questions to illicit prior understanding of the students. There is then an explanation of gravity and the calculations extensively modelled. After that the students get an opportunity to select from a series of tasks and opt to work, this is outcome differentiated via gold, silver, bronze tasks. The students then complete a hinge point question (AFL) that directs them to 1 of 3 differentiated tasks, there is a purple (high order thinking) task available for the students to move onto once their tasks are completed. The lesson concludes with an exit ticket and a rag of LO.

Revision timetable and resource bank. To use: print and give to the students, put it up in the lab, send it home to parents or publish as an electric copy. QR codes and hyperlinked topic titles take the students to a revision resource (mostly BBC Bitesize), on most days there is a key diagram and a selection of subtopics to revise. This resource is designed to chunk the challenge of revision, giving students two months to revise every topic required for the mock exam that Edexcel are using to calibrate results. The calendar starts on the first of March and goes up until two days before the first exam. Revising is a vital skill that many teachers neglect to teach their pupils. Most students struggle to plan their revision and rely on pre-exam cramming, as these students will not sit their final exam this year we need to ensure we help them retain the information. Spreading it out like this makes it an achievable challenge and will help them with long-term retention.

The lesson starts by matching the keywords to the images. The lesson then moves to review the examples of the evolution of giraffes linking each stage to the exam specification. The students then rate their confidence and move on to differentiated storyboard tasks looking at the evolution of the woolly mammoth. The lesson finishes with a 6 mark question with a mark scheme so the students can self-assess their answers.

The lesson starts be getting students to make associations between different organisms. There is then a teacher lead (all within the presentation) discussion about the use of 5 kingdoms and the move to the 3 domains. This is then assessed via a deep diagnostic hinge question that direct learning to the students weaker area. The lesson finished on an Edexcel specific exam question with the opportunity to review the answers, this is recorded in the exit ticket tracker.

The lesson is specific the new Edexcel GCSE and part of topic 5. The lesson starts by engaging the students in what it means to be healthy before to learning outcomes are discussed. The lesson moves to look at the WHO definition of help with memory trigger pictures to help students make associations. After this a graph is interpreted that helps establish the correlation between wealth and health, there are questions to guide thinking and HOTS questions to stretch able students. Definitions of communicable and non-communicable disease are reviewed with students before a work sheet and a further HOTS questions stretch learning and demonstrate understanding the lesson concludes with an exam question and model answer.
