Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans (including higher ability)
  • PowerPoint presentations (includes higher ability)
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Reflection of thoughts worksheet
  • Teacher assessment
  • Animation for coping with exam stress

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
