TV shows / TV program - Spanish- AQA  GCSE Reading (Sec. A- T/F) differentiated

TV shows / TV program - Spanish- AQA GCSE Reading (Sec. A- T/F) differentiated

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson includes a scrabble starter to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included few slides explaining how to use VES application to check the meaning of conjugated verbs and asked them to try to find few on their own to check understanding and to encourage them to be independent. Then they practice phonics when pronouncing new words (see new vocabulary attached - quizlet) followed by the quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a set of slides to introduce a reading section A exam task text - TV program (please note that this is a task taken from BBC Bitesize website and I bear no right on it therefore) . There is also a differentiated Rally Coach activity to consolidate the knowledge of the new vocabulary after they looked at the task whereby they try to translate the sentences in relation to opinions on TV programs. Consequently they have a look at the TV program text again and complete a series of tasks to enhance their understanding - underline cognates, discuss unknown words in a group and learn how to use Spanish Dict application (an explanatory slide given). Finally they analise the way they should answer the questions (True / False) and complete the Reading task and self-assess their work. I have included the handout with the reading task to ease the pain. Enjoy!

AQA GCSE French - Writing (Foundation) answer strategy - Questions 2 and 4 / Higher Question 1

This is a template that I prepared for my higher year 8 students and early KS4 in relation to answering a Writing Foundation Questions 2 and 4 // Higher Tier Question 1. The topic of this example is celebrations / festivals. Students begin by translating the short text into English and coaching each other if stuck at the same time assessing each other’s work. Then they revise some grammar by playing tarsia game (see template in the end of the presentation). Consequently they get on with reading the question and what is required from them and discussing the what they could include in their answer (both content and grammar structures). Then they make a break and play a dice game (can be prepared prior to the lesson or during the same - see template in the end of the presentation) and a learning grid to revise verb tenses. They then get back to the task and work in pairs to plan their answers. Finally they complete the task individually, discuss the success criteria and the marking scheme with the teacher and peer / self assess their work. Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas!

Work experience and future plans (Find Someone Who Can activity) in Spanish

Work experience and future plans (Find Someone Who Can activity) in Spanish

This is a Find Someone Who Can activity, and so needs to be a little interactive. If you’ve never used this kind of an activity, it’s built with differentiation and stretch in mind. There are 2 levels of ability, each corresponding to a high ability (HA) and middling ability (MA) worksheet. You give each student what you consider fits best, they have a certain amount of time to discuss the translations and at the end they sit back down and mark the work. You could make this quick by providing the answers in sequence on the board, or you could work through each one as a class and then pull out any important lessons about grammar. The rules are explained on the sheets: you can’t answer all the questions yourself and you can’t rely on the same person to help more than a certain number of times. That way, knowledge circulates and those who are less able have a chance to ask why a particular translation is the best fit. To add an extra dimension of practice, why not circulate and listen to students try to pronounce their translations to their peers. That way, you can make this into an exercise that deals with pronunciation and fluency too. This is a complete activity for around 20 minutes of lesson time. It fits best for GCSE classes, but I have used it with the most able KS3 groups before and they appreciated the challenge.
