Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Learning Grids for A Level Edexcel Religious Studies

Brilliant new idea for supporting weaker students!

A brilliant new idea designed to support weaker students. Students have to read their textbook/notes to complete a grid of questions in exact specification order. Cross-referenced to the major textbooks to ensure a structured reading of any of the texts.

A saviour for those students who find learning difficult and motivates the less willing. Leads to active learning, identification of key points & the structuring of information.

  • Particularly supports ‘hands-on’ learners who need to write information to absorb it.
  • Full answers provided
  • An easy-to-set, yet valuable homework option.
  • Requires minimal preparation and interaction from the teacher — great for cover lessons!
  • Result! Revision notes – full spec coverage!
Supporting and fully cross-referenced to: ZigZag Course Companions; Ethical Studies (Bowie, Nelson Thornes) AS and A2 Religious Studies: Student Books (Tyler & Reid, Pearson); Understanding Philosophy of Religion (Ahluwalia, OUP)

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5746)
'Good as a revision or consolidation exercise... due to the structure of the questions and the ease with which students will be able to 'hunt and peck' the information required. It could also be a useful catch up tool for students who have missed work. I think it would work well for lower ability students... Liked the logical structure of the questions, page number to find information quickly, specific questions that link well to the requirements of the spec in terms of the knowledge students need for both AO1 and AO2... it would really help less confident students... I think less able students would be motivated by the clear progress through the learning that they could make through using this resource... The range of questions asked clearly addresses the needs of the spec in terms of knowledge for each unit... I would definitely buy it for lower ability students to use... It could even become the students own revision guide once completed.'– L McNamara, RS Subject Leader & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5747)
"A very practical resource. It is easily marked, assesses learning in a functional way and is easy to follow... I liked how it is very simple and straightforward. It assesses all topics to some level and begins with low level questioning- definitions and progresses on to high level questioning- ‘assess the strengths/weaknesses’. It uses bloom’s taxonomy well. It could also be used as an oral quiz for a teacher if they wished. The answer sheet is excellent and would be extremely beneficial to a newly qualified teacher who may not be as confident with the answers which should be given. It encourages independent thinking and learning... Due to its layout and structure, this could easily be used in class but also set as a homework exercise."– U Burnes, Teacher of Theology and Ethics, Independet Reviewer
"A useful resource for student and teacher alike... it could provide a nice map for the planning the learning in a lesson or to help students build up their knowledge of the topics taught... The questions draw out the main pieces of knowledge needed for each topic. It would be really useful for a new teacher as well in terms of showing them the most important knowledge... I think this could be used to create flash cards to help with revision or also could be used as the basis of in class testing. It could also be used to set pieces of homework. It could also be useful for cover as the answers could be provided for students to self assess their knowledge against... I think the layout is clear and logical. I do not think that it could be improved. The simple structure is what makes it appealing and easy to use."– L&Nbsp;McNamara, Teacher of Philosophy and Ethics, Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5749)
'The questions are clearly written... very useful for lower ability students... useful as a revision tool in sections for pupils ... and has real potential to be used as a form of assessment other than exam questions...I particularly like that the questions really cover the breadth of the course rather than other resources like this that only cover the basic ideas of each theme. I like the reference to the textbook pages and the websites for information as this is also helpful for students... I think for pupils to autonomously work their way through the book would be a really useful tool...an excellent way to differentiate homework tasks because as a teacher you could select appropriate sections...As said previously I also think this has a lot of potential to be used as a continuous form of assessment and way of monitoring pupil's knowledge of the key themes. It is important for pupils to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge for the AO1 aspect of the exam and I think that this is most useful for that... a really good level of detail and covers all of the areas and themes of the course. It has made reference to named philosophers and the specific specification of the course. There is no unnecessary information but also it does not lack in any of the themes. The specification does expect the level of knowledge, key terms and philosophers from pupils and I think much of that is covered in this resource.'
'The resource is very well organised and is a good test of learners' knowledge. The topics and subtopics are treated well and are clearly placed and could be easily used in the classroom, with different options for stronger and weaker learners. Within the answer resource, there are well written answers, showing the author's confident knowledge in the topic, using good references to scholars to support the answers. An excellent resource for students to utilise... It will allow students using it to challenge themselves and test their learning in a methodical and organised way. Students could easily use the question cards with the answers as a match activity or to test their knowledge in a variety of ways, be it topic by topic, or identify more specific worries within the subtopics... The resource is well suited to the specification, giving a very good overview of the topics students will be covering. It provides a thorough treatment of the topics covered and could eventually help towards exam style essay structures. The resource encourages an indepth knowledge of various ethical ideas and systems, whilst also allowing students to draw their own conclusions on particular ideas, such as Marx's theory. A range of thinkers are covered in the learning grid, which will allow learners to stretch themselves, but also gives them the core theorists they are required to know. The resource will help to hone essay writing skills that are very particular to what examiners are looking for with regards to the Assessment Objectives.'– V&nsbp;Austin, Learning Tutor of Philosophy and Ethics, Independent Reviewer
