MFL Department Review / Learning Walk

(0)
Following an OFSTED visit our department introduced this to review teaching and learning each term. Two members of staff do a learning walk, interview 4 students and fill in the form as the go. We then, as a department act upon the feedback. Following our recent monitoring visit, OFSTED are thrilled with the idea and it has now become a whole school initiative. I hope it works for your department! It is very much adaptable. Claddagh Classrooms

Ceisteanna Poem - Irish Language Questions Poem

I did this poem in Primary School to help me remember the Irish language question words. I still teach it today! It's fantastic way to teach what is usually expected to be just rote learned off. Also I generally find with lower level abilities they struggle to remember the question words and this always helps.

I use this resource with all my Junior Cert / Cycle classes (U.K. Year 7 - 9) It contains a PowerPoint that starts with a poem about Oíche Shamhna (Halloween) to set the mood.

After you have gone through the PowerPoint, there is a word search and also a crossword for students to complete. This is definitely one of my favourite lessons to teach and students love and engage with it!
