What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5059)
"An excellent resource... lessons were explicit with good notes and suggested questions" – S Littler, BTEC Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This resource could be used in numerous ways to enhance learning. The lesson notes support individual learning which could be during the main teaching time or during revision. They are sufficiently detailed to support learners aiming for distinctions but also provide accessible information for pass level learners. The questions provide plenty of chance for assessment of learning and could easily be used for self or peer assessment. They could also be combined to develop formal assessment tools. The material provides a clear route through the unit.The lesson objectives are clearly linked to the specification and the content of the lesson matches this. The notes pages are also well matched to the specification and often go into a good level of detail to ensure that learners can reach the highest requirements of the specification.I really liked the idea of the lesson plans with clear objectives and starter/plenary ideas. I also really liked the notes in support of each lesson really useful and very well put together and written.The resource also does several jobs in one so is excellent value for money"A Hemming, Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"This is an excellent resource for busy teachers as many features are time saving and at the same time help a student to understand the basic concepts of applied science... The scheme of work template is effective and the exam style questions are excellent" F Savery, BTEC Applied Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
