Kreb Cycle | Cirtric Acid cycle

(0)
This is a detailed presentation which includes detailed teachers notes on the topic. The Student handout included pictures for the pupils, activities, space for notes and exam questions. Outline the Krebs cycle, with reference to the formation of citrate from acetate and oxaloacetate and the reconversion of citrate to oxaloacetate (h) (A) explain that during the Krebs cycle, decarboxylation and dehydrogenation occur, NAD and FAD are reduced and substrate level phosphorylation occurs; (B/C)

Lesson plan proforma, observations forms and OFSTED drop in form

(0)
This is a collection of resources that can be used to improve your teaching. The lesson plan proforma is not designed for everyday use it is just for observations, supporting new teachers or experienced teachers that need some help. The observation forms a couple are linked to OFSTED criteria the other is based on an evidence and judgment format. You could use these forms as a teacher to judge your own lessons or as a guide to help you improve your teaching or as a observer to ensure that you have a structure to follow when in a lesson taking observations.
