I believe that the pupil who does the work, does the learning, so my lessons are designed to facilitate a pupil enquiry-lead approach. My resources aren't trendy or earth shattering, they are a backbone to build the finesse onto, or, if it's period 7 on a Friday, you've got 300 reports still to write, a dozen UCAS references AND you need to set cover for a colleague who's sneezed twice and is off all week, they will serve well enough at an advanced FOFO level.

Highest Donalds

Highest Donalds

A comparison game not in any way similar to an aggressively copyrighted card matching game. Use it to get your pupils researching about universities by filling in the fields and then comparing against their peers. You can even throw in a few pre-prepared cards of your own for popular courses such as Law at Oxford, Medicine, PPE, Engineering and so on. The fields are editable and the information can be found on the Universities own website, on UCAS, in Heap Degree course offers or in the Times/Guardian guides. This is the simplest itineration so pupils have what I consider to be the essential information and you can edit it depending on the focus of your pupils (I normally include application deadlines, Open Day Dates and Visa requirements, number of students on campus and international: home student ratio).

When you remember that unis in Europe are either free or low cost (e.g. Holland) and offer courses in ENGLISH its worth exploring. My entire UCAS and EU university resources. There’s everything there to get your pupils thinking about applying to uni, and to guide them through the process. There is card matching game not at all similar to “Top Donalds” powerpoints, an editable excell table for viewing where the pupils are in the application cycle. PS, the photo is my son (now at uni) embarking on his first big adventure…

Organic Chemistry Flashcards Mechanisms and Functional Groups EDITABLE

Organic Chemistry Flashcards Mechanisms and Functional Groups EDITABLE

Differentiated Resources for teaching Organic Chemistry. Differentiated by ability and task. Pupils use the cut out and match-up cards to construct a reaction pathway, from alkenes to carboxylic acids and back and flashcards to learn the functional groups. I have colour coded this into three simple reaction pathways-see picture- you could amalgamate for stronger pupils (or get them to integrate) into one larger web, or provide blanks to expand on the stimulus material. To make Flashcards- simply fold down the centre and stick. For weaker candidates I give them colour coded versions. Additionally, for the flashcards, weaker candidates get given the structures. Stronger candidates can do this as a pair matching or sequencing activity which gives better retention in the long run. Works fine as a starter, revision, plenary or activity.

Forces and Motion. Calculation of g, a lesson in Data Handling in Science Experiments

Forces and Motion. Calculation of g, a lesson in Data Handling in Science Experiments

This is for pupils to develop the ability to use a spreadsheet (I wrote it in excel) to process a large amount of data in order to calculate a value for g (set to be a little lower than 9.8) and then lead into consideration of experimental errors. Using s=ut + 1/2at2 pupils can calculate gravitational acceleration. Pupils are provided with values for s and t Pupils need to calculate a mean t from a very large data set (easy to do using excel). Pupils then need to square the mean t. Then they need to plot s against t2 which will give them a linear graph with the gradient as 1/2 a. The worksheet is editable so weaker pupils can have more guided instructions. Stronger pupils can work their way through. The accompanying worksheet then looks at errors in measurement- absolute and % AND there is a random error in the data set. Pupils can use absolute errors in the data to determine size of error bars, Pupils can work out experimental error, plot best, steepest and shallowest trend lines for g and compare that against the total % error in their data.

Revision of Stoichiometric relationships

Revision of Stoichiometric relationships

Differentiated revision/ activity. This is a simple reinforcement/ revision resource in which the pupils need to link the boxes to complete the definition. I normally pair this with a second resource (attached) where the pupils then write the second part of the definition in a blank box. Alternatively, slice the statements into individual parts and scatter across the desk- pupils need to reassemble -which, if you believe in gardner's multiple intelligences (which I don't), is good for kinaesthetic learners.

Interview Checklist

Interview Checklist

As it says on the tin- a checklist of things I would expect pupils to do before they go to an interview. Proper preparation and planning prevent pretty poor performance.

Supporting pupils with careers advice- mentor tutors editable

Supporting pupils with careers advice- mentor tutors editable

This is something I write for Mts to keep them focussed on their responsibilities at this time of the year. Includes links to guidance on applying to holland, the US, the UK etc, personal statement advice and is a good start for the inexperienced MT. I keep track of all of the applications, personal statements and references through a google drive, but you can edit this to link in to whatever you want. This is a brief over-view, a full presentation required an hour and staff were losing the will to live, so I have chopped it to the bare minimum that I think MTs should be doing.

Options Choices, Universities in UK and Europe, and Brexit from Careers perspective- editable

Options Choices, Universities in UK and Europe, and Brexit from Careers perspective- editable

For Mentor Tutors really, but can be formatted for parents or pupils (it's editable) With the Brexit nightmare unfolding, European courses are MUCH more attractive/competitive (cheaper for starters, and with academics leaving the UK, this is a perfect opportunity for European unis such as ETH, to poach students and staff from Oxbridge and Imperial). Applications to Cambridge are down by 14% this year- those pupils have to go somewhere and they can't ALL go to Scotland or Ireland. This is a simple guide produced to help advise pupils as to what permutations of subjects to take and the cost of study. I've written it for IB DP but the links will readily allow you to convert for A level or whatever you teach.

Oxidation and Reduction Flashcards

Oxidation and Reduction Flashcards

This is a simple resource of matching pairs. Fine for revision- can be used as matching cards or as flashcards/ sequencing. I use this type of activity as part of a standard repertoire for a starter or a plenary for fact-based learning. It may not be trendy- but assimilating facts is pretty-much the cornerstone of chemistry learning, but pupils don't like it. This sort of activity makes it more entertaining, and with bigger classes you can do it as a race. I have small classes sources so I do it as a timed exercise over successive lessons.

Managing your University Applications- editable
