GCSE AQA A Learning Grids: Component 2: Thematic Studies
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.
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
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.

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
