GCSE AQA A Learning Grids: Component 2: Thematic Studies

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

A brilliant new 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.

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

"Clear and well set out resource. It is user friendly and easy to duplicate." J Simpson, Religious Studies Teacher and Satisfied Customer
'User friendly... The resources are well laid out and visually appealing without being over stimulating. The grid system enables students (and teacher) to quickly review student's understanding of a topic. Learning is in more bite-size chunks - students more likely to engage than with just a traditional textbook... Exam-style questions also very useful in guiding students in their thinking and writing of appropriate answers.' – M Wilson, RS Teacher & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7489, 7494)
“I wish I’d thought of it... A simple but very effective concept... The exam-style questions make the resource very relevant... a great revision tool! Effective for homeworks... ideal as a meaningful cover lesson… but equally could be used routinely by specialists too... content coverage is exhaustive and comprehensive... I wholeheartedly recommend it.” – C Pountain, Teacher, Head of RE, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
