Files you will need for your lessons

In addition to the Close Study products students need to be able to apply theory in their exam. The Core lessons introduce and teach the Frameworks of Knowledge which underpin the new specifications. The Close Study Product lessons then build on the framework taught in the unit to make the learning cohesive and applicable in exam conditions. NEA units, where the links are live, are lessons teaching the skills your students will need, to develop excellent NEA responses. 

Each Unit and section has the following materials for learning*:

  • A Teacher Scheme of Learning (SOL)
  • Online Slides to be projected for the whole class
  • A Student Workbook (can be cut and pasted from the online page into a booklet and printed for the students to work from.)
  • Student Workbook Appendix Images (printable pdf files for making notes/tasks)

*Please note there will be references to the ‘Exam’ in Close Study Product resource titles because these are for exam preparation
