  • Perfect mixture of activities motivates and enthuses all learning styles
  • Ideal blend of individual, paired, small-group and whole-class activities develops independent and cooperative learning methods

The answers given are realistic that I would expect from students, but still allow for teacher autonomy and students to build upon their answers

What do teachers say about this resource? (9711)

I really liked this resource, I thought it would be really beneficial to any teacher as it offered a wide variety of activities which would appeal to different learners. I thought it was well thought out and set at the right level, all too often Health & Social Care resources are created which are pitched far too low to cater for the less able learner, these tasks are suitable for a typical mixed ability classroom... I liked that the activities were all set out to match the unit one specification, making it really easy for the teacher in their planning to see exactly where each task fit into the syllabus. I also liked the fact that the tasks took account of 16-18 year old interest, for example the tweet activity. Helps students to consolidate learning, could also be used as a good revision tool e.g. students could be given a task on life stages when Learning Objective C is being delivered just to get them to think back to what thy had learnt in previous weeks. The tasks also can stretch students, all too often students are not stretched enough in lessons but many of these activities allow for this. I liked the layout, it was very user friends - easy to navigate, Instructions for teachers followed by tasks worked well. I thought the specification matches the three Learning Objectives really well as there are activities / tasks for each point in the specification which accurately match the topic on every area of the unit. I would definitely purchase this resource... A really good resource which would save the classroom teacher lots of time and help get students engaged from the minute they enter the classroom.

This is a good resource that will reduce teacher workload and allow teachers to be more creative. The templates are easily adaptable. The answers given are realistic that I would expect from students, but still allow for teacher autonomy and students to build upon their answers. Adaptable to a range of students and can be used in a multitude of ways. Teacher notes and the answers are on the same page to help keep teachers organised.
