Our best selling GCSE 9-1 Unit is now available in one product! This unit includes all of the teaching material for the entire course. 37 fully resourced, differentiated, engaging lessons that cover the entire specification. I initially planned and taught this unit in 2015 and since that date it has been tweaked, updated, improved and developed into a very thorough unit of work. All the lessons include a step by step guide, several activities, high-quality worksheets, exam style questions, literacy support and help for the less able and challenge for the more able student. The majority of the lessons are student led and follow a similar method which I have successfully employed in my 14 year teaching career. The lessons are planned to allow the teacher scope to take the lesson in many directions, with plenty of open-ended questioning opportunities to allow the learner time and space to create original outcomes/ responses to exam style questions. I hope you enjoy teaching this unit as much I have! Please get in contact if you have any questions or require any support with the material after purchase.
