New AQA GCSE - Resources and schemes of work
« on: June 08, 2016, 07:54:03 AM »
Hi all,

Is anyone else struggling for ideas/resources/data for the new GCSE AQA spec.  The stuff on the AQA website is pretty much non-existent and it is now very much case study based.

Anyone found anything good or had any good ideas?

The new text book by Simon Ross is pretty decent

Would anyone be interested in me setting up a Facebook group for AQA GCSE Teachers - I created an OCR A Level one last week, and we already have 26 members. I'm not sure it would be duplicating something that is already in place, but I would really value a hub dedicated to people teaching the new AQA GCSE for exchanging ideas, sharing resources, asking questions and collaborating. I know that 'Nings' have worked for this type of collaboration with other boards in the past, and recognise that Facebook isn't as flexible in terms of threads posting etc, but I am happy to be flexible going forward in terms of a platform. My overarching view is the more teachers who are teaching this spec we have looking, commenting and sharing in one place the better. I will be using Google Drive to share resources here. No rules about how much you share. What does anyone think?

I think this would work really well and really feel that the more people on board with resource sharing at this really difficult time of change the more we will
All benefit and try and cut down on our work rate a little!!
