AQA Functional Skills in English: Speaking and Listening Unit

This unit of work is designed to help build the skills necessary for success in the speaking and listening assessment for AQA Functional Skills English as well as those valued by employers. It is a discussion based unit and explores skills such as asking questions, leading a discussion, researching and planning a presentation. It leads to two assessment activities, a ‘meeting’ in which students discuss setting up a series of lunchtime clubs for younger pupils followed by an individual presentation in which students showcase their own plans for a school club. I have included a detailed set of teacher’s notes, a 42 slide teaching PPT and all resources in both word and pdf format. I hope your students enjoy taking part in this unit.

Speaking and Listening - Bowling for ColumbineQuick View

Speaking and Listening - Bowling for Columbine

A full lesson (most likely two) based on 'Bowling for Columbine'. Students will need to have seen the documentary before the activity. I use Netflix. Students are given differentiated roles and are encouraged to discuss the issue of gun crime in the US through the eyes of various different demographics. Success criteria and challenges provided for more able students. It's a really engaging topic for reluctant groups and encourages wider thinking. Have used this on higher and lower ability groups and has produced great reasoned and well-thought out debates.

Dragons' Den Persuasive Project! (Building Speaking & Listening and Persuasive Writing Skills!)Quick View

Dragons' Den Persuasive Project! (Building Speaking & Listening and Persuasive Writing Skills!)

This resource is perfect for enabling students to build both their persuasive writing and their speaking and listening skills. Based upon the popular BBC series 'Dragons' Den', students have the opportunity to research, design, pitch, and evaluate arguments for their own inventions, whilst simultaneously analysing persuasive pitches, revising persuasive techniques, structuring arguments and articulating convincingly. Included is a 16 page booklet (I would say at least 4-5 hour lessons of tasks) that lead students to: - Introduce themselves and their interests; - Watch persuasive pitches (links included) and identify persuasive devices; - Analyse why persuasive devices are effective; - Structure an analysis appropriately; - Brainstorm ideas for an invention using imagination and helpful aiding questions; - Formulate an argument by considering key questions and counter arguments; - Write and present a persuasive pitch; - Peer-evaluate and self-evaluate persuasive pitches. I have also provided some examples of news stories featuring the worst and best pitches from the den, in order to provoke discussion about what makes a strong pitch. All images are licensed for commercial use and are cited throughout.
