I'm a teacher working in a leading secondary school and I have always enjoyed resourcing. I resource many of my lessons and these are always well received by my department so I thought I'd try to bring them to a larger audience. I have a firm belief that worksheets should combine aesthetics with functionality and pride myself on polished, well presented resources that scaffold without leading and encourage critical thinking from students.

Kidneys PowerPoint for A-Level - Detailed slides on ultrafiltration, reabsorption and osmoregulation

(2)
A detailed PowerPoint of 19 slides outlining kidney structure and function. Separate sections focus on ultrafiltration; reabsorption in the proximal convoluted tubule; water reabsorption in the Loop of Henle; and the role of the hypothalamus and posterior pituitary in releasing anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) and its affect on the permeability of the collecting duct in osmoregulation. Carefully presented diagrams outline the processes and explain in step-by-step annotations how these organs work. Multiple points of the PowerPoint are animated and you can navigate between slides/sections using a centralised menu. Also included is a printable notes sheet with diagrams from the PowerPoint integrated to facilitate student note-taking. Note - the preview function on TES mauls the PowerPoint slides - please be assured they work fine on both PC and Mac - I've tested them carefully.
Oxygen Dissociation Curves (Haemoglobin) Worksheet for A-level
cadarnlozcadarnloz

Oxygen Dissociation Curves (Haemoglobin) Worksheet for A-level

(1)
The resource consists of a double-sided worksheet comprising 6 examples of oxygen dissociation curves that may differ from a ‘standard’ curve for ‘normal’ haemoglobin for various reasons. Students need to read information on the situation in each case and predict, with detailed reasoning, the shape of the curve most likely for that case. This serves as a useful consolidation activity and also encourages a re-examination of students’ understanding of dissociation curves so is equally a useful revision resource. The accompanying mark scheme can be used for self/peer assessment and also to promote discussion in the classroom.
