What Do You Teach At A-level?
Posted 04 May 2003 - 12:34 PM
However lots of people posted the information about what board, syllabus and topics they did at GCSE in a recent (and ongoing) thread here.
These are being gathered together in a new thread here. You can find people who do the same options as you at GCSE and possibly contact them to share ideas.
In this thread you can post information about what you do at A-Level. In addition please post here if you have experience of teaching a topic at A-Level, but have moved school etc. This will allow access to a latent pool of knowledge, and stop it being wasted. This applies to me for instance as I am now at an 11-16 school rather than a 13-18 High School.
The information that should be given is:
Unit numbers and titles.
When this has been done for about three weeks I shall gather the data together to produce another database in the same format as the GCSE one. Thanks to Neil McDonald for the idea of doing this for A-Level.
Unit 2 - The French Revolution
Unit 3 - Our own coursework on the American Revolution
Unit 4 - Enlightened Despotism
In addition I taught these units under the old system:
Russia (18th and 19th centuries)
