    I have tried to combine AO1 with another AO but was told not to do this so I have to ask whats the best links/way to intergrate this into a helpsheet for my lower ability classes. I was thinking of doing it as a powerpoint but I need to approach the rather mundane world of health and safety in an approachable way and its proving tricky.

    We have done it as a leaflet thereby using it as one of the business Docs! No reason why it could not be done as a powerpoint though

    That sounds like an awesome idea! What resources do you use to appeal to the pupils?

    Main engagement is a simple spreadsheet with each pupil on, each AO and then their grade which is lef on the board as each AO is marked up it goes....lads love competition and that's what starts. I now have pupils that cause problems in other subjects engaged as they want to beat their mate/girls in the class etc. Oh and I top it off with if you get no Mark you are a no Mark and will look good in a green baseball cap with a big golden M on the front once you leave school as this is the only place that will employ you!
    Who said competition doesn't work!

    Cool where did you get the research for health and safety for the students from?

    I didnt I gave them some examples and possible areas to look at and then got them to research it - I am not a great believer in guiding and spoon feeding I would rather they found out and then I look at and reguide!

    Sorry if you misunderstood, neither am I! I would love for them to research it for themselves however I am unaware of websites etc that have an "approachable" way with year 8's as thats where it would be done.

    Ummm well I put together a presentation on some of the issues and then let them "google" I would worry about their readyness for the qualification at year 8 if they can not sift through information and find the relevent stuff!
