Sport treiben - subordinating conjunctions  'wenn' and 'als'. OUTSTANDING LESSON!

Sport treiben - subordinating conjunctions 'wenn' and 'als'. OUTSTANDING LESSON!

A lesson for a higher ability GCSE class focusing on subordinating conjunctions using 'wenn' and 'als.' I was recently observed by Ofsted with this and was told I would have received an outstanding grade, as all students made rapid progress and the lesson was heavily differentiated. 1) I have attached a higher level text about sport - students play the ignorance game in differentiated groups and pick out words they they think others won't know. If others can't use the context to work out the meaning of these words, the initial team scores points. Students learn these words for their homework. (Personalised homework). In the next lesson, the words will appear in sentences for students to translate. 2) I have attached my powerpoint, which contains 3 key questions re: wenn and als for learners in the lesson, to enable all learners to progress. 3) A 'rip and run' activity - students work in differentiated groups ripping a sentence off and translating it. If it's correct, they are challenged by getting another translation sentence. If not, teacher uses targeted questioning to enable to the group to make progress. 4) I have attached a game of sentence auctions, used to individually challenge students' misconceptions. (Moving from group level to individual level). Students look at word order with 'wenn' and 'als' and bid on correct sentences and lose money if they bid on incorrect sentences. I use fake Euros! More challenging sentences are worth more money! Students can also translate into English etc.

Echo Express 1 Module 4 Vocabulary Matching Exercises

Echo Express 1 Module 4 Vocabulary Matching Exercises

These simple yet versatile matching exercises are made from the vocabulary used in module 4 of Echo Express 1. They can be used as starters, extensions, plenaries, homework and revision. They are also great for measuring progress when used as a starter and a plenary in the same lesson. They can also be colour-coded / traffic lighted to provide instant feedback as well as a focus for assessment revision. I always let pupils choose whether they want to write the answers in in English or the Target Language. Matching with lines never works! I have had great feedback from pupils when using them and hope you will too. Please let me know if you find typos / mistakes.

A resource to enable students to massively improve and detail their opinions. All of the examples in this pack are on the topic of sports, but it could easily be adapted to other topics. There are 8 pages of structures at the end of the powerpoint and as a PDF which could be printed as an A4/A3 page, laminated for tables, or using the different version converted into a mini-book for students reference. The powerpoint includes many slides for explaining the use of the structures followed by some sentences to translate into English using the other pages for support.

Quiz Quiz Trade Speaking Cards on the Future Tense with hobbies/free time

Quiz Quiz Trade Speaking Cards on the Future Tense with hobbies/free time

A class set of Quiz Quiz Trade cards which practise the future tense with the topic of hobbies/free time activities. The cards include sections in brackets which can be translated for extra challenge. For example, needing to use inversion with 'morgen'. How Quiz Quiz Trade works: Every student gets a card. They get up, and find a partner. They 'quiz' their partner by reading out an English sentence for them to translate. Once both partners have done a translation, they swap cards and find another partner. I like to give students a certain amount of time and for them to see how many conversations they can have in that time.
