The lesson is specific the new Edexcel 9-1 GCSE and part of topic 5. The lesson reviews a couple of extreme examples of obesity ad obesity surgery with differentiated questions to ensure the students stay focused. They then review BMI and the problems with it as a measure of obesity. There is a brief discussion of smoking before the student answer a Hinge point question to direct learning to different tasks on a worksheet. The lesson concludes with an exam question.

On the Wasted Years report recommendations this is the second lesson in a scheme of work that looks at preparing Year 6 students for secondary science. It is written by a secondary science teacher for the cross phase development program being run 2016-17. The spec is based on the interim assessment framework (IAF). The lesson starts by reviewing previous learning before introducing the skills focused practical, adhering to the IAF. The students then record the results on a table before producing a graph. The lesson finishes with a structured conclusion to ensure that the learning has been achieved.

Very big lesson (I ran it over two hour with year 10). The lesson start but looking at the definition of a parasite via a couple of videos. There is then a hinge point question that leads into a mini SOLO task. This is followed by an exam question and model answer to discus the marks and key points. The task then turns to mutualist looking at the species that are recommended on the exam spec. The lesson finishes with an exam q.

Variation - Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Biology: Topic 3, lesson 7 Variation

(1)
The lesson provides a definition of continuous and discontinuous variation, the students then apply their gained knowledge to a variety of graphs to identify different variation. Inbuilt into the lesson is a hinge point question, this is a string AFL device that directs learning to a distinct differentiated task. The students get an explanation with various examples of environmental and inherited variation. They then get the opportunity to show off their knowledge with two outcome differentiated worksheets. The lesson concludes with an exit ticket.

This is sample resource for the scheme of work available from the premium resources type in - 'Waves and Electricity - 13 lessons and end of topic assessment.' The lesson starts with a review of previous learning, before modelling how to calculate frequency. The understanding of this calculation is assessed via a hinge point question, this directs learning to one of three tasks, the students demonstrates their learning before the lesson concludes in an exit ticket.
