GCSE AQA Short Course Learning Grids: Short Course

For Section B: 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

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
