AQA GCSE science: core foundation teacher's guide

This teacher's guide provides extensive support for staff teaching the new GCSE. Written to support the foundation student's book, it provides answers and support to all the questions and activities within the book.

The guide also provides lesson outlines with starters, main and plenary activities, suggests timings, provides help in dealing with common misconceptions, outlines the new skills being taught in the course and highlights assessment opportunities for formative, internal and external assessment.

The student's book has a strong emphasis throughout on how science works. It focuses on real-life contexts, allowing students to understand that science is not always centred in a laboratory. The book aims to motivate and engage students with many up-to-date applications and ideas.

This guide will help support teachers through this new style of GCSE teaching. All the material is provided in paper and CD-ROM format for easy use. Throughout the guide, the supporting resources are fully referenced, including the separate e-worksheets CD-ROM with practical activities and homeworks, and the interactive presentations CD-ROM. The online scheme of work will be a valuable complement to the teacher's guide.
