El Laberinto del Fauno - 2020 A2 Q2 Essay

(0)
This essay provides an exemplar/plan of an A* grade essay, through a critical and analytical response to the A Level 2020 writing past paper question 2 “Los tres personajes femeninos principales representan a tres tipos de mujeres muy diferentes”. Analiza esta afirmación y justifica tus ideas.’ It analyses the three main female characters of the film and what they represent, with views and conclusions supported by relevant and appropriate evidence. It evaluates the issues, themes and the cultural and social contexts of the film. How can this resource be useful to students and teachers? It provides accurate and detailed knowledge of the film, as well as examples of complex language with a wide range of vocabulary. Students can re-write the essay adding short linking expressions or conjunctions (also included in the resource). A highly effective way of using this essay is to create flashcards or a mind map, in order to support with revision and enhance knowledge and memory retention. Why is complex language not demonstrated using different tenses? Students should be reminded that the present indicative and subjunctives are the most appropriate register for this style of essay. Complex language can be shown through, for example, subordinate clauses, formation of regular and irregular verbs, use of impersonal expressions, value judgements, verb + infinitive (+ preposition) expressions, etc. Why is there no introduction? It is not essential to write an introduction. It is perfectly acceptable to go straight into the first point as there are no marks awarded for structure. A short or no introduction which delves straight into the essay is preferable, as it saves time without losing marks.

Google & Microsoft Forms Quizzes – Spanish KS3 Complete Curriculum

Google & Microsoft Forms Quizzes – Spanish KS3 Complete Curriculum

(1)
Dear fellow teacher of languages, in the attached documents you have the links to make a copy of all Spanish Google and/or Microsoft Forms Quizzes I have designed so far, which cover a complete two year out-of-class curriculum suitable for Years 7 & 8 or primary school. If you’re in the USA, it is appropriate for levels I & II. Each lesson quiz is fully self-marking and starts with a bespoke video where content is taught. Here’s an example https://forms.gle/RVACUdzXMEBHvYht8 (no email addresses will be collected). The benefits and rationale behind these resources is threefold: • Provide consistent high quality weekly independent learning (whether you follow a similar curriculum or something different), inducing retrieval and memory retention, thus improving student performance and effectively enhancing student progression. • Make use of the automatically generated student performance data to analyse student attainment, including where there may be gaps in learning. This can then inform your lesson planning. • Severely reduce your marking/grading (and workload by not having to design them in the first place), without compromising on the quality of provision. No more photocopying worksheets or lesson time wasted checking who has done their homework either. Use in homework in the form of ‘flipped learning’ if you assign it before lessons, or revision, consolidation, retrieval tasks, assessments, face-to-face teaching, hybrid/distance learning. All quizzes work very well on any device. I will be designing more quizzes and updating this map regularly. If you’d like to know when I do so, leave your email address here https://forms.gle/UWG7gRLDt9eCm7Dv9. I will drop you a quick email every 5 or 6 weeks (check your spam folder!). I’m sharing all these resources for free and I hope they are useful to you. To return the favour, simply buy me a coffee https://www.buymeacoffee.com/teacherworklife

Spanish AQA A Level Google Forms lessons - Coronavirus

(1)
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. Providing lessons for students in this way allows 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. Details and lesson descriptions attached.

Spanish GCSE Google Forms Remote Teaching Lessons - Coronavirus

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.
Year 7 Spanish Full Course (suitable for KS2)

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).

AS and A Level Exam Style Questions - Ángeles González-Sinde Having completed a Mock exam, I noticed my students struggled with some of the exam-style questions. This worksheet allow to practice some of those tasks, and prepare students for their exams. Source: El País Semanal Entrevistas Exercise 1: Translation into Spanish. Students read the introduction of François Ozon and translate into Spanish. Exercise 2: Verb conjugation and summary practice. All summaries in the exam will be in the form of an interview, where students will be tested on whether they can identify the correct information and manipulate the language – i.e. conjugate verbs from the first person singular and plural into the third person singular and plural. 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.
