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

(1)
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.

This resource consists of a two page worksheet. The first is a grid and the second is the tiles that should be cut out and stuck on the former to complete it. Cut and stick activities can be unpopular - especially at A-level - but my students have all agreed this is a great summary activity and a fantastic resource for later revision. The finished result is a single sided piece that works through the entire cycle of a single myosin head power stroke. Also included is a printable markscheme and a newly added PowerPoint markscheme where the answers reveal themselves on each click - to allow self assessment.

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.
