Spanish GCSE Google Forms Remote Teaching Lessons - Coronavirus

(7)
Dear fellow teachers of Spanish, Due to the Covid-19 outbreak I have been creating remote GCSE Spanish lessons using the Quiz Assignment function in Google forms. The lessons include plenty of visual aids and a range of reading, listening, writing, translation to and from Spanish, grammar and even speaking tasks. Providing lessons for students in this way has allowed access on any device, ranging from desktop browsers to smartphones. This means that all my students are able to access the work I am providing and completing it. Another benefit of setting lessons in this way is that students can see their answers and check through their progress as soon as they finish the lesson. From the teacher’s perspective, I can track class attendance and check through answers individually, or by downloading all answers into a spreadsheet in order to track progress. If given the circumstances you would still like to monitor student engagement and progress, feel free to use the lessons I’ve created so far. I will be adding new ones on a weekly basis. Details, lessons’ list and descriptions attached.
Spanish GCSE Speaking Exam Conversation Workbook

Spanish GCSE Speaking Exam Conversation Workbook

(0)
GCSE Spanish Speaking Conversation High Level Questions & Handouts. Questions are split into each sub-topic for the Edexcel specification (although they can be used for AQA as well) with a support booklet with a wide range of vocabulary, expressions and structures for students to prepare answers or ideas. I used it in last year’s examination with a high level of success. In the live exam, in order to ensure a natural flow of conversation, I dipped in and out of these questions based on the answers students were giving me. Each sub-topic allows students to use at least three tenses and verbs are underlined in the support handout to highlight their importance. Once the whole preparation is complete, I do plenty of practice through ‘speed dating’ activities; Students practice the topics with each other and with me and then move around to work with different partners. Please note I do not ask them to memorise answers, but by completing this workbook and through speaking practice they gain deep knowledge for each sub-topic, which they are then able to express in the live examination. The workbook and support handout contain questions on the following topics (some topics have more questions than others, due to their nature): Theme: Identity and culture Who am I Daily life Cultural life Theme: Local area, holiday and travel Holidays Travel and tourist transactions Town, region and country Theme: School What school is like School activities Theme: Future aspirations, study and work Using languages beyond the classroom Ambitions Work Theme: International and global dimension Bringing the world together Environmental issues In order to print the support handout student friendly please click: File Print On the Full Page Slides box click on the drop down arrow. Select 2 slides and tick Scale to Fit Paper (unless already ticked). Tick the Frame Slides option.

I am designing remote AQA A Level Spanish mini-lessons on all the topics using the Quiz Assignment function in Google forms. The lessons include a range of reading, listening, writing, translation to and from Spanish, gap fills and grammar. All quizzes are either fully self-marked or have feedback.

This means that all my students are able to access the work I am providing and completing it.

Students read the introduction of François Ozon and translate into Spanish. Exercise 2: Verb conjugation and summary practice.

This will be the only requirement in the exams’ summary tasks, which this exercise tests. Exercise 3: Find a synonym. Students read the text and find a series of synonyms which match the ones they have been given.

Coronavirus School Closures: Remote Teaching and Well-being Guidance

(1)
Dear colleagues, School closures have been announced for the foreseeable future and the Prime Minister has said that he “will ensure student progress will not be impeded”. With that in mind, I’ve created this guidance to assist teachers in providing high-quality remote teaching and learning, and to help teachers manage workload and protect their own well-being during this difficult time. I’ve based the strategies on the experiences of our counterparts in international schools in Hong Kong and China – they are eight weeks ahead of us and counting. There is a huge learning curve and no time to climb it steadily so the strategies I set out in this guidance are designed to put you on the right path straight away. This manual outlines how to: Plan and teach effective lessons Set classwork Monitor engagement and attendance Check classwork completion Assess progress Provide feedback I’d like to keep this as a working document for teachers and by teachers, so please feel free to contact me if you spot something that’s not quite right, or you know something that would be beneficial to others and you feel should be added in. Any updated editions will have an added number in the title.

Teacher Workload: How to Master it and Get Your Life Back

#1 Amazon Best Seller in the Teaching Category The vast majority of teachers enjoy teaching and are positive about their workplace and colleagues, but they are disappointed by the profession. According to the UK’s Health and Safety Executive, teaching staff and education professionals report the highest rates of work-related stress, depression and anxiety in Britain. A colossal 81% of teachers say that they have considered leaving teaching in the last year because of workload. I’ve been there myself, and I have come out of the other end triumphant. In this book I’m going to show you that it is possible to be a guilt-free, effective teacher, without compromising on the quality of your teaching or time with friends and family, and without giving away your precious evenings, weekends and holidays. The book includes true and tested strategies which continue to work well for me, and I’m confident they will work for you. I’ll provide you with ‘real world’ tools from someone who, just like you, is in the classroom Monday to Friday. I’m going to demonstrate how you can tackle your ever-increasing workload, including both ways of reducing it and ways to improve your own productivity. I’m going to show you that it is possible to obtain healthy levels of occupational well-being and truly achieve a work-life balance. You are going to get your life back.

Year 7 Spanish Full Course (suitable for KS2)

(3)
Dear fellow teacher of Spanish, This Spanish beginner’s course covers one full academic year and is suitable for Year 7 or Primary school students. I’m hoping it will save you substantial amounts of time in your own lesson planning, and enable high quality teaching as well as student progress and attainment. It comprises PowerPoint presentations, a student handout for each lesson (or a whole module handout), and lesson plans. Each presentation takes up two one-hour periods, making up 42 lessons. Lessons are designed and sequenced to maximise student progress, interaction and pace. All mark schemes and audios are embedded, with transcripts in the notes section at the bottom (use Presenter View so you can see the transcript when doing listening tasks, and pause at the right time if necessary). Content including answers come up as you click. The presentations are editable so you can adapt to your own teaching style and students. I have attached the Curriculum Plan as well as a sample lesson. Simply click on the Google drive link in the PDF to access all the lessons (free).

AQA GCSE French and Spanish Past Papers Google Forms Quizzes

(0)
In this document you have the links to make a copy of Google Forms AQA’s GCSE French and Spanish, Listening and Reading, Foundation and Higher past papers. Working through past papers is an excellent way to revise and allows students to get used to the structure of a paper and the language they use, work on time management, understand the allocation of marks and mark scheme, as well as assess their performance. All papers are fully editable and self-marking/self-checking either through allocation of marks in multiple-choice questions, or through feedback in questions where students have to write/type. Once students complete a past paper, all responses are collected, which allows you to check answers and see where there may be gaps in learning, in terms of question structure or content, thus informing future lesson planning. Research from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) states that using digital technology to support learning can add + 4 months onto student progress. By effectively integrating regular quizzes, such as these, into your Curriculum, you will not only be saving time with marking (and not having to create them in the first place), but also inducing retrieval and memory retention, thus improving student performance. Use in remote teaching, face-to-face teaching, homework, revision, consolidation, retrieval tasks, exam-style questions’ practice, walking-talking mocks and/or assessments. All Quizzes work very well on any device. Here’s a couple of examples (no email addresses will be collected) French https://forms.gle/HTkr1T9SL8W731279 Spanish https://forms.gle/85qy5P9VLqDuqYSc6
