New GCSE Unit of work on World Issues

New GCSE Unit of work on World Issues

This unit of work focuses on World issues, solutions to World issues, the environment and a comparison between French and British schools. It is aimed at developing speaking and listening skills. Speaking tasks include role-plays and description of pictures, which can easily lead to free flowing conversations (part of the new GCSE). However, there is material to do reading and writing. Lesson 8 goes through a French song called "L'hymne de nos Campagnes" to add a cultural element to the unit, along with lesson 11 that deals with French schools and the French system. Resource 11 goes with lesson 8 and resource 12 is an improvement prompt you can use when peer-assessing speaking and teacher assessing as well, which will leave a trace of the work done in class in the books.

Using prepositions correctly with 'avoir mal à' (talking about self and others). 3. Describing symptoms of illness/ problems (cold/ hot/ hungry, etc.). 4. Understanding longer texts and vocabulary to describe a refugee's situation. 5. Using the verbs avoir/ être succesfully in the context of illness and problems. 6. Using their combined knowledge to spontaneously talk and write about images, in which they imagine what it is like to be a Syrian refugee.
