French Writing Free Time Mon Temps Libre Successful Approach to Writing Assessment

French Writing Free Time Mon Temps Libre Successful Approach to Writing Assessment

A very successful approach to Writing Assessment and preparation for exam conditions writing at GCSE. Suitable for use at KS3 and in KS4. A3 sheet to be copied for pupils. In exam conditions, pupils fill in the French in column 1. If they don't know a word, they put a cross in the column. This should take 5 minutes. Then allow the pupils to look at their books etc to fill in column 2 for any words they couldn't remember in exam conditions. This should take 5 minutes. Then pupils do the Writing Assessment using ONLY this sheet. They hand the sheet in with their assessed piece so the teacher can see how much was known language (column 1) and how much had to be looked up (column 2). It also acts as a scaffold with pupils having all the ingredients for success ready to put into their writing.
