Please note; If you are a teacher who uses text books, and placemats then these resources are probably not for you. However if you are a teacher who thinks out of the box, relishes in motivating, challenging, engaging and seeing your students progress, then these resources are indeed for you. They are stimulating and so engaging that your students do not realize how hard they are working.
This is a whole school exam / test prep bundle, which can be utilised by any subject and any topic. Contained within are my two popular, fun and hugely powerful Exam and test prep lessons. Each lesson contains a lesson overview, main PowerPoint, all resources, and instructions which are each 60 minute lessons designed to stretch and reinforce students understanding of any topic you want.
I have also included a presentation on exam technique outlining what examiners are looking for and how to recognise key areas of papers, also there is a section on exam preparation techniques detailing different strategies that are effective for your students.
There is also 2 different exam test prep activities, hugely powerful in building detailed paragraph answers and reinforcing keyword meanings, these can also be used in any lesson plan not just exam prep.
The two full lessons are as follows
This revision lesson can be applied to any subject and any topic which makes it so powerful. Because of this the teacher will have to prepare 9 information slides each with 3 pieces of information relating to the chosen topic. I have added a set of slides from halogen (chemistry) revision as a template. This took me 10 mins to produce and I am not a chemist.
