Speaking Test - Revision Wheel - Identity and Culture

Speaking Test - Revision Wheel - Identity and Culture

An adaptable resource to enable students to prepare for the question and answer element of the speaking test. Students prepare answers on the wheel. There is a sheet of vocabulary and phrases to help them. The wheel is best printed out on A3 paper to give students ample space to write their responses. It also works best if the students colour-code their responses to match the colour of the question. Teachers can change the questions easily electronically if they prefer to use different questions. At the end of the Technology document there is a photograph example of a completed wheel to share with students by means of an explanation. Important - the final step is to print off a blank pro forma. Students cut it the circle in the middle so they can see the questions and cut it the ‘triangles’ which cover their answers. They can then reveal questions one by one whilst learning, bit by bit for testing or get partners to test chosen segments. More themes to follow.

German GCSE Speaking -  General Conversation - Theme 1-  Differentiated Questions and answers

German GCSE Speaking - General Conversation - Theme 1- Differentiated Questions and answers

This resource is an example of the General Conversation at GCSE for theme 1. This book is ideal to show students what is expected of them in the General Conversation. Information and questions are colour-coded for foundation and higher level students. Key questions (those using tenses) are starred so that students know which questions they must learn to maximise their marks. The chilli icon is used to document challenge questions, for those students attempting to secure higher level grades such as grade 9. Some questions are multiple-choice, so that questions can be tailored to students' personalities, circumstances and abilities. There are two answer booklets attached, showing students the type of vocabulary needed in each answer. One booklet is for lower prior attainers (Foundation) and is 9 pages long. The other booklet is for higher prior attainers (Higher) and is 11 pages long. The resource also contains a revision activity to help with this. Students practice their speaking by playing expression bingo - students have two minutes and are peer-assessed, to see how many of the sentence starters on theme 1 they can use!
