If you thought we just did written resources, you’re wrong! Here at Beyond Secondary, we understand there are different types of learners, some learners enjoy video break-downs on specific topics and that’s exactly what our playlists do. The YouTube playlists consist of short, informative videos that are perfect to use as part of classroom learning and revision. The majority of these videos are under five minutes long, which keeps the information bite-sized and easy to understand.
Our excellent team of teachers have created these amazing videos to supplement your teaching and boost the understanding of your students. We’ve picked out our top three YouTube playlists for your viewing pleasure:
Macbeth Playlist from Beyond
The Macbeth YouTube playlist breaks down all you need to know about one of Shakespeare’s famous plays. It’s a bit like having your own virtual teacher, as Beyond’s qualified teachers explain the context, act summaries and analyse key quotes, themes and characters in the play. All the content is age-appropriate and has been vetted by our team of English teachers and examiners to ensure your students are able to tackle this iconic play.
To consolidate your learning further, you could use our comprehensive Macbeth Revision Guide. It comes complete with exam questions and answers that you can use to practice all the key quotes and theme analysis you learned from the YouTube videos!
Romeo and Juliet Playlist from Beyond Secondary
There is no way we could make a revision playlist without including this awesome text. Romeo and Juliet needs no introduction as one of Shakespeare’s most popular and thought-provoking texts. The YouTube playlist explores the rich themes, quotes and characters in this play, while also breaking down the context and exam assessment objectives which give your students all they need to prepare and succeed in the exam.
Check out the playlist in written form in our Romeo and Juliet Revision Guide. It’s jam-packed with worksheets and activities to get your students thinking.
Introduction to Science Playlist from Beyond
Introducing new Year 7 students to Science in secondary school can be a real challenge. Beyond’s Introduction to Science YouTube playlist takes away some of the burden. The videos cover lab safety, equipment, scientific concepts and the key investigative skills all budding scientists need to know. You can play the videos in class to ensure that your students understand your expectations, enabling them to remain safe and get the most out of their learning.
We’ve compiled all the KS3 Introduction to Science lesson packs into one handy bundle. There are lessons and resources that can be used alongside the videos to support your students as they learn something totally new.
