  1. what are your ideas so far? If you tell us what you have, then everyone can give you comments/advice based on that.

    That's the main problem I have no ideas. :( as it's only 25 mins I thought I'd have a word loop to recap what they did at AS 5 mins, talk about the light dependent stage for 5-10mins...and that's where I've faltered. I know my plenary will be a past exam question. But I can't figure out what activity I should get them to do.
  3. If you have not come across the "Biology Coloring Book" by Edward Alcamo, I suggest you source one. For A-level teaching in biology it has some absolutely brilliant pages - who wouldn't want to colour in a kidney nephron, a cell membrane, or DNA replication?
    Each double spread has one page of diagrams to colour, and an adjoining page that has information at a good level of detail that includes instructions of what to colour in as you're reading. Definitely enough to keep them going for 5-10 mins + maybe some independent study after the lesson, and engages different learning styles.
    Good luck.

    The light dependant are pretty complex. I act them out. Draw your membrane with chalk or tape on the floor. Draw on the differenet pumps and photosystems. Give each pupil a label explaining what molecule they are and then run through the cycle of reactions with pupils physically moving around.
