New French GCSE - Theme 2 writing exam and feedback sheets

New French GCSE - Theme 2 writing exam and feedback sheets

Two practice writing papers (one foundation, one higher) following the format of the new GCSE writing exam, and focusing on the topics covered in Theme 2. The foundation paper includes four questions (describe the photo, 40 words question, translation and 90 words question) and the higher paper includes three (90 words question, 150 words question and translation). I have also included two feedback sheets (one foundation, one higher) that include"check-lists" (based on the AQA mark scheme for writing) to provide quick, personalised feedback for each of the questions. The check lists provide the students with feedback on what went well (WWW) and what they need to do to improve further (TIF).

Le meilleur système scolaire

Le meilleur système scolaire

I created this resource as part of a unit on education. It explores the strengths and weaknesses of different school systems around the world and gets students to think about how they learn and how different school systems attempt to provide the best answer to today's challenges around education. All sources are authentic (1 radio programme and 3 videos) and the links are on the worksheet. It is also an opportunity for students to learn and practise new vocabulary, as well as revise/learn about conjunctions that call for the subjunctive (bien que, pour que, sans que, etc.). This activity represents 1200 minutes of class work. This activity is ideal for A2 students, IB Higher level students or B2 level students.

Mon travail bénévole

Mon travail bénévole

A lesson on volunteering and charity work. Includes a photo to describe, a reading comprehension, a group work, and an outline of a writing task. I also included two activities based on authentic French resources on volunteering which probably may be more suitable for higher ability students: a translation into English and a reading with a potential extension writing activity.

Quelle attitudes envers les marginalisés?

One lesson encouraging students to think of the situation of handicapped people in the society, including a stimulus for a whole class speaking, a reading comprehension with a short translation, and two stimulus cards you can use for in-class practise speaking (I encourage students to make more questions for a follow up discussion).
