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.

Creative Writing Ideas for MFL

Creative Writing Ideas for MFL

In supporting our students with the new GCSE we need to get them writing spontaneously and freely. Here is a small collection of ideas to encourage students to write creatively at KS3 creating good habits in preparation for their GCSE written work. This could be used as prompt for departmental discussion or a stimulus for work on writing skills. Some of the ideas can be lifted directly from the information here but most will need to be developed to suit individual schools / departments.
