YEAR 10: LESSON 13, End of H Term Assessment (NEW EDUQAS SPECIFICATION 2017 TEACHING ONWARD)

YEAR 10: LESSON 13, End of H Term Assessment (NEW EDUQAS SPECIFICATION 2017 TEACHING ONWARD)

Lesson 13: This lesson explores the SAMS assessment provided by EDUQAS. Relevant resources needed to complete the lesson are all included within the Power Point e.g. Mark scheme, question, timings, print text etc. Students conduct the mock as they would do in the exam under timed conditions. Then for the remainder of the lesson, a peer assessment task is included so that students can get instantaneous feedback (WWW's, EBI's and a grade/level). I would then advise as I have done with my students, that this be taken in and marked by the teacher also. NOTE: I am following EDUQAS Teaching Model 1 in my teaching/ SOW. Moreover, each lesson has a task whereby students RAG (Red, Amber, Green) what they have learnt in the lesson against an Examiner checklist (Differentiation, peer assessment). (Each lesson is laid out as I teach my own class but I have added notes at the bottom of some of the slides e.g. on the Media Teaser, to aide teachers. All lessons are developed with differentiation, assessment/challenge as well as engagement entrenched heavily within all my resources. Moreover, constant reference is made throughout to the selected Examiner Media. If you liked this resource and found it useful, it would be greatly appreciated if you could feedback or rate my resource as I am constantly trying to adapt and refine my resources to improve the learning of my students. Many thanks.
