Technology in Everyday Life Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Technology in Everyday Life Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Writing and Speaking practice for the new GCSE (based on the AQA scheme of work), can be used across any language (in my school we use it for German, French and Spanish).I use this at the end of a module for students to recap and add it to their file for future reference. It prepares them for writing assessments and the general conversation part of the speaking assessment.There are 8 questions for students to answer on the topic TECHNOLOGY IN EVERYDAY LIFE.I have also included a generic checklist for students to use, to make sure they are using tenses, opinions, justification etc. as well as a blank checklist for teachers/ students to add language specifics/ extra criteria for higher target grades. I am also selling similar placemats for other topics.

German GCSE complete learning grids for topics 1 and 2 (me, my family and friends' new technology)

German GCSE complete learning grids for topics 1 and 2 (me, my family and friends' new technology). These are designed for students to have random practice in key questions which might arise in the speaking and writing exams. They are in the form of 6 x 6 grids and are used by students throwing 2 dice (which give them a coordinate on the grid) and then answering the question. As the GCSE questions are in random orders, these grids give students key exam practice.
