GCSE AQA A Learning Grids: Component 1: Study of Religions

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

Learning is in more bite-sized chunks – students [are] more likely to engage than with just a traditional textbook...

...Exam-style questions [are] also very useful in guiding students in their thinking and writing of appropriate answers

  • Easy-to-set, yet valuable homework option.
  • Minimal teacher preparation/ interaction – great for cover lessons!
  • Result: revision notes – full spec coverage!

A godsend 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.
  • Scaffolded AQA-style questions help develop exam technique
  • Full answers provided
