What do teachers say about this resource? (11449)

On the whole I think it’s the best resource I’ve used from Zig-Zag so far. A huge resource that is great value for money! I liked the summary of lessons that can be used to provide cover for lessons in a fraction of the time usually taken, there are also lots of Youtube links that can be accessed to further develop students’ knowledge and understanding. Some very simple activities produced that are very effective, such as the images of sports stars performing skills and then asking students to identify joints being used when performing such skills. I feel that it develops and reinforces students’ knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the CNAT and GCSE PE course. I particularly like how the resource has produced a number of case studies on a range of areas, that does prompt higher order thinking and problem solving that will help students to access higher grades. It is great for staff to use a different way of teaching a particular topic or just used to set work for cover teachers, whereby it lends itself into tapping into a range of learning styles.
