Revision notes: El ciberespacio

Revision notes: El ciberespacio

Following the success with the first instalment, this is the second instalment of a series of revision notes for the preparation of the new A Levels (AQA). The notes are a compilation of ideas from subtopics touched upon in class, with plenty of ideas sourced from the students themselves. They can be used for the preparation of the listening and reading, or for the stimulus cards. The idea is that students revise the vocabulary and key ideas grouped together by context. I hope it is useful for you and your students. Please leave a comment. I will soon publish the revision notes for the third unit. Happy teaching and learning!

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.

This is the forth installment of cards, general questions and improvised situations that I have created (others also available in this site). Some of the context of the cards are: singers who sing using swear words, beauty pageants in Mexico, models who break mold, footballers who appear in ads, etc.The improvised situations practise expressing the opposite opinion and reasoning it.I enclose a brief preview to give you an idea of the material.If you found the resource useful (or not), I would be most grateful for a comment.Again, I hope that £2 is a reasonable price for everybody: it cuts your work and it rewards mine.I will be producing cards for Unit 5 shortly, so watch this space.Any comments here or at bgp@stbrn.ac.uk gratefully received.Enjoy!
