A brilliant idea designed to support less-academic students. Students have to read their textbook/notes to complete a grid of questions in topic-by-topic order. Cross-referenced to the ZigZag Course Companion and to the endorsed textbook to ensure a full and structured understanding of the spec.

Requires minimal preparation and interaction from the teacher: ideal for cover lessons or homework

Working alone or in pairs, with or without their books, every student can engage with this resource. A godsend for students who find it difficult to absorb information in class!

  • Questions cover all assessment objectives – developing students’ ability to demonstrate understanding and apply knowledge
  • Full specification coverage – great for using as revision notes
  • Particularly supports 'hands-on' learners who need to write down information to absorb it

Pack includes question-only grids and answer versions for easy marking.

Plus! Extension tasks challenge students to create links to unseen media types – perfect for exam practice!
