What do teachers say about this resource? (5318)

Pupils engaged with resource, helped them to understand the concept more.

Straightforward and comprehensive. The lesson plans were easily followed and the differentiation – and hints to pupils on how to self-differentiate very useful. Overall impressive. Notes to students indicating what they will need to produce to achieve Distinction level work are helpful and will reinforce teaching. A great time-saver! Overall I thought it was well written, well thought out, and would make life much simpler regarding planning, resourcing, setting up and running practical sessions.

An excellent resource and highly recommended... it lays out the subject in a manner which fully engages students and provides the resources which enable the teacher to do a good job tackling this difficult area of science. Follows the new specification well. The tasks and assignment briefs are well written and broken down into manageable lessons with clear learning outcomes

Well organised and easy to follow with a suitable amount of practical work for the students, which keeps them engaged. The success criteria are made clear to the student and teacher, and progression to higher grades is easy to follow

C Saunders, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

I would have no hesitation using this resource. There are very few textbooks out there pitched at the correct level and the information is time consuming to try to find from scratch... This resource could prove to be invaluable

D Davidson, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

This is an excellent resource... The specialised student information sheets (teaching notes) reduce student research time (and stress) so students can focus on applying knowledge. The teaching notes are followed by direct questions, ensuring students comprehend the information. The assignment briefs are well written therefore students have a clear understanding of the requirements needed to complete tasks. Tasks are also varied allowing for a range of assessments whilst the activities motivate and engage students. This unit is extremely popular with students and the author ensures students will not be disappointed as the unit includes interesting practical activities and fact sheets
