Skill organiser for Spanish GCSE (9-1)

Skill organiser for Spanish GCSE (9-1)

A resource designed to be displayed/given to students which outlines the timings, marks awarded and success strategies on how to approach the new exams. There are some key structures for students to learn alongside the tips on how to approach each question. (Thank you to the author of the Translate in 8 idea- apologies for not crediting but I cannot remember where I found the original resource) The Top 10 box on the writing H has been left blank for students/teachers to write key structures for students- this could be done as a class or individually e.g. for my most able student, these are subjunctive phrases and idioms but for my less able, it is set structures such as I went, it was, I will go etc.

New Spanish A Level: Year 1 (AS) Paper 3 (speaking) discussion cards.

New Spanish A Level: Year 1 (AS) Paper 3 (speaking) discussion cards.

This booklet contains 36 speaking cards based on Theme 1 ans Theme 2 of the new AQA Spanish A Level course (Aspects of Hispanic society and Artistic culture in the Hispanic world). In other words, the themes covered in the AS course (Year one of the A Level course). The cards contain (quite a lot) of factual information about the theme (a lot more than the sample cards from AQA) and three questions, the first one always being "How do you react to the information on this card). The aim of presenting the cards like this is to provide the students with a lot of ideas on what to say about the theme, as well as making them more aware that they always have to discuss the information printed on the card (AO2 and AO4). Each section is followed by around 20 questions for the students to research / discuss the topic further. Finally, the booklet also contains an overview of the A Level course, the Paper 3 exam and a list of useful language for the test.
