A Level Biology - Immunity - Past paper assessment - Very structured!

(0)
Three questions on the topic of particle theory (AQA - A Level Biology - Immunity) that are on a nicely laid out sheet for completion and sticking into books. Includes self assessment at the bottom to allow them to choose which topic requires attention based on their score, not just their feelings towards it. The next slide has the answers in the wrong order so they actually have to read them not just copy them! Included is a blank version you could use for other topics. [image is just an example of others I have done]

Templates for you to duplicate and use through Forms or set through Teams. Great for flipped learning from September - mostly self marking, just have to give feedback for longer answer questions. Each one follows the general format of: Upload your notes on Carbohydrates from your text books and the link below: WEBLINK Answer the multiple choice questions that follow the video, Answer the longer question at the end, Write a target based on the task. You will have to change the Theme as it is our schools logo. Have been really useful during lock down and could be good to share - I think I have included the right links to let you use these correctly. Let me know if there are any issues. If you haven’t used Forms through Teams before you have to set the task, then go into the Teams version of that “quiz” and reset the File upload question so that it creates a SharePoint area to save it. If that makes no sense, maybe replace the File upload questions with something like “Have you spent 20 minutes + making notes?” and a Yes or No tick box question.

Used as an observed lesson (so have included lesson plan without student details). I used repetition in small stages to gradually build the picture of the thylakoid membrane and the students seemed very confident at the end. Use the knowledge based questions to check basic understanding before going on to the longer answer questions. PowerPoint Lesson Plan Knowledge based questions Longer answer questions
