ABSTRACT

This chapter contains all of the A-level-specific lesson techniques for History, Geography, and Sciences, split into the sections of the lesson as outlined in Chapter 6. These sections - Starters, Explanations/Demonstrations, Main Activities, and Plenaries - each contain a list of ‘basic lesson techniques’ that are applicable to these A-levels, as well as tailored activities that have been proven to work best with these students.

At the end of each of the sections, there is a single sample lesson plan for that subject, demonstrating how techniques from each of the sections could be pulled together to create lesson plans quickly and easily. There is also a list of the most common issues that tutors can face when tutoring that subject, such as essay structuring in History or difficulty with extended answers in Geography.
