I've been teaching the OCR spec this year and since Jan have been doing the institutions and audiences section. Pretty much every lesson has been either me going through a powerpoint (and asking questions etc of course, or sending them off to do research on their case studies. It's getting a bit dull - although thankfully we're onto timed essays and things now. I'm thinking about how to teach this next year in a way that doesn't just involve powerpoints and going through theory. How do others teach their A Level lessons? Is there much alternative to chalk & talk, other than getting them to do research?
