AQA Step Up to English Gold AO1 Lessons Component 2 Secret Spies.
Step Up to English - Gold Level.
Fully resourced lessons for assessment objective AO1.
Component 2 (creative reading and writing).
Excitement here at Quirky Whiskers, I have developed the first, of an eagerly anticipated, series of lessons to complement the Secret Spies assessment at Gold level – Component 2.
This unit of work aims to support the acquisition and development of the assessment objective AO1:
• read and understand a range of texts
• identify and interpret explicit and implicit information and ideas.
These lessons are based on extracts taken from the engaging text driver, ‘The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency’ written by Alexander McCall Smith. The African setting is used to context set a suite of engaging exercises.
I am a practising English teacher as well as a head of department and my resources are developed for use by my own students, a number of which have SEN and/or challenging behaviour. In order to meet their needs, I create resources which are SEN aware, engaging as well as academically challenging. My own students have responded extremely well to these resources; the resources are targeted to support progress and attainment towards the qualification.
This resource comprises 10 engaging, short, sharp activities to support students who are working at pre-GCSE level and require support with the first of the assessment objectives - AO1.
