AQA Biology 4.7 Ecology – L4 Data Analysis from Quadrat Sampling

(0)
New AQA GCSE Biology scheme (2016). A lesson on how to analyse data from a quadrat investigation. In the lesson, pupils are shown how to use results from a quadrat investigation to estimate full field coverage of plantain. There are worked examples, which build in level of difficulty as the lesson progresses. The resource also includes differentiated exam practice, to allow pupils to apply their knowledge and assess their level of understanding from the lesson. This lesson is complimented by L5 Quadrat Method lesson.

NEW AQA Biology - 4.2 Organisation Revision
VmongooseVmongoose

NEW AQA Biology - 4.2 Organisation Revision

(0)
A set of revision resources for 4.2 - organisation unit (new AQA GCSE scheme of work). The download includes a checklist to enable pupils to carry out independent revision prior to the revision lesson. During the lesson, pupils are given a set of questions as a starter to assess their understanding of the topic. Their answers to these will generate a revision pathway of different activities for them to complete within the lesson. Answers are also provided so that pupils may assess their own progress throughout. The concept of the revision lesson is easily adaptable to a range of topics and subjects (some of the Biology ones can be found in my TES store). I have been observed with this lesson by Ofsted and was judged 'outstanding' (when judgements were still given) due to the high level of personalisation it offers to each pupil.

AQA B1.3 Drugs - Structured Revision

AQA B1.3 Drugs - Structured Revision

(0)
Pupils start by answering a set of questions (the powerpoint refers to Showbie codes that I get my class to use for revision at home before the lesson, but this slide can just be deleted if you don't use this). Pupils will then be directed onto a revision path, depending on how many questions they get right from the starter. Each path is made up of approximately 6 tasks that are each meant to last about 5 minutes. At the end of the activities, pupils will then complete a 25 minute test to see how well they have progressed in the revision lesson. Both red (easier) and green paths have been included, along with the answer sheets so that pupils can self assess.
