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.

Plant Reproduction & Gametogenesis for A-level

(1)
A 41 slide PowerPoint detailing: Flower anatomy for both animal and wind pollinated variations to recap with A-level students from GCSE, leading into detailed slides outlining microsporogenesis, macrosporogenesis, pollination and fertilisation in plants. This is tailored to the Edexcel Biology B specification but is fully detailed so should suffice in any scheme of work. Each process is covered using clear, custom made diagrams and animations paired with step-by-step explanations and fully detailed notes. I put this together initially to help my students follow the complex processes of gametogenesis in plants and fertilisation and it has certainly proven helpful. A 3 page, printable sheet of diagrams for annotation is also included, which can be distributed to students and completed as the teacher presents and explains. I’ve now used this resource several times and am please with how it has turned out. Do note I’ve tested this on both PC and Mac and it performs excellently on both mediums. I pride myself on producing polished, professional feeling resources and always respond quickly to feedback if an issue occurs so you can download an updated resource promptly.

Sustainability Role-Play Debate (Overfishing, Fisheries Ecology - for GCSE or A-level)

Sustainability Role-Play Debate (Overfishing, Fisheries Ecology - for GCSE or A-level)

(2)
Designed to take up around a single lesson of time, this debate is aimed at 14 to 16 year olds but could easily be used with older students too. It splits students into 3 groups with conflicting interests (scientist, politician or fisherman) from a fictional country and challenges them to form a plan of action regarding their country's use of dwindling fish stocks. Split students into groups by role (the scientist and politician roles require perhaps the greatest flexibility of thought, so maybe differentiate your groups allowing for this) and give them 5 to 10 minutes with the source material to discuss in their groups how they feel about the issues and what they're going to be aiming for in their debate. Students then assemble into teams of 3 (one of each role) and have 15 minutes to debate about how they will tackle the issues of overfishing outlined on the accompanying worksheet. They should complete the included worksheet and reach a decision as to how they will move Pandora onwards into the future in a position that will best please everybody. Each group then feeds back their decision and some of the reasoning behind it. This exercise helps students appreciate some of the real world conflicts that exist between human needs and those of the natural world. In my experience it also serves to show how some of these issues may not be as clear-cut as students first assume.
