    Hi Folks
    Hoping someone on this forum can help me out as I'm having to teach this new course in Sept to bottom sets Y9/Y10 students and just don't know where to start!
    Do you start with the core units - if so which is most likely to suit low ability students to start with?
    How many lessons do you teach the core units in? The SoW suggests 14 weeks but wasn't sure if this meant one lesson per week or not.
    Apart from the AQA Humanities text book can you suggest any other books/resources which would be helpful?
    If possible could someone help me out with a SoW for the Culture and Beliefs core unit to compare with the ideas I've got as I'm a RE specialist not a Sociology or History specialist and concerned I'm making it too RE based!
    Thanks for any help with this.

  2. I have some good guidance and schemes of work I have picked up from searching on line that I can forward to you. We are starting GCSE Humanities this coming year. Have you heard of any good AQA Humanities courses for teachers?
  3. I am a non Humanities specialist teaching this (Science specialism) and have some resources (albei not great) that may help. Maybe we could all share bits round and come up with something together? (I really need a decent SoW as mine is very basic)
  4. Hi--Are these SOW available yet?Also--what is suggested time allocation for each unit?
