Cambridge iGCSE English 2015/16 Core Paper- Prepare for iGCSE Unit Based on Actual Materials

Cambridge iGCSE English 2015/16 Core Paper- Prepare for iGCSE Unit Based on Actual Materials

This is a full unit of work, designed to use after students have sat the PPE / Mock exam that Cambridge provide free of charge on their website (although I have uploaded it with the lessons for ease). This exemplar exam is produced for the new 2015 / 2016 specification and uses the new format for the core paper. Cambridge have produced it to support schools using their exam this year. These lessons are completely new resources; produced entirely by me and not available anywhere else to purchase. The idea of the scheme is that you give the exam to the students, let the pupils sit it and then don't mark it but actually go through it with the students and teach them how it would be marked and how they should have approached it - a little bit like a 'walking talking mock style' but after the fact. "This is what you should have done". By teaching these 5 lessons you help them to understand why they receive the marks that they will and what they could have done to improve. The lessons are designed to boost pupils up to band 1, regardless of where the starting point may have been and should demonstrate ample progress and reflection time for students. Each lesson is a self contained powerpoint with the resources attached at the end of it, so that they can be printed out easily. lesson 1 starts with questions 1a to 1c and recaps vocabulary with cooperative learning techniques and a competition; helping to boost pupils understanding in preparation for lesson 2 and 3. Lesson 2 covers the techniques and ways to tackle 1c to 1f. There are pictures of student answers for students to mark and explain why the students did or did not get full marks. lesson 3 is dedicated to the tricky 1g and explains how pupils should tackle it, using the mark scheme explicitly and example answers. Lesson 4 tackles question 2, explaining how students should avoid the pitfalls that they sometimes fall into. Lesson 5 goes over the simplest way that pupils should have tackled question 3 and asks them to reflect on all that they have learnt in the week then to write to the teacher with how they could improve now and what they still need to learn. Each lesson allows pupils the opportunity of a 'redo'; with the scaffolding of the mark scheme and their original answer in front of them - hence the demonstration of progress.

AQA GCSE Literature (1-9) - Macbeth - paper 1, section A - Getting to 8s and 9s

AQA GCSE Literature (1-9) - Macbeth - paper 1, section A - Getting to 8s and 9s

This is a GCSE booster session for the more able students that will take approximately 2 1/2 hours to deliver (2 if some of the work is given as flip learning - i.e the first tasks). It is a full powerpoint that uses all of the techniques that AQA are suggesting will help candidates to get to the 8s and 9s. It is set up, ready to be delivered and the resource booklet is also included at the end of the ppt. Aswith all of my sessions, tasks and instructions are clear and embedded so that it can be delivered as it stands. This is the first in a series of booster sessions that is targeting the more able and the others will rely on the techniques shown in this one for them to be successful. The session delivers exam technique and how to write the exam style question - it does not reteach content at all. There are WAGOLLs throughout an the focus is on a critical style of writing, references and what subject terminology is. This session could also be adapted to train teachers who are teaching top sets in GCSE Lit. Success Criteria: To know the criteria for level 6 responses (Grade 8 and 9). To understand what ‘going in and out’ of the extract means. To know how to analyse key words / phrases to Grade 8 / 9 standard. To understand the difference between quotes and references. To understand what subject terminology is. To better understand what a critical writing style is.

Outstanding Teaching & Learning Training

Outstanding Teaching & Learning Training

This is a training session that I deliver to all of the teachers that I train - at various stages of their career - although NQTs have been the ones that have got the most of it. It is yet another piece of my work that has been seen being used in training sessions where people have paid to go - so blatantly stolen. For that reason, so that no-one else makes a profit out of my work - I offer it out freely to all of my training and teaching colleagues and hope that you get a great deal out of all of the work that I have put in here!

OfSted Outstanding Literacy All lessons Starter 1

OfSted Outstanding Literacy All lessons Starter: With a new shift in focus for the 2012 framework that means that teaching and learning can only be judged outstanding if literacy and numeracy are encorporated across the curriculum, I am making a daily starter / settler activity that can be incorporated into all lessons. These mini activities are examples of a literacy activity & there is a tutorial before each. These are going to be made daily, so I'll upload them é I hope they will help other schools to boost literacy teaching. This one is about extending vocabulary.

Writing Assessment Materials (whole assessment system) - KS3 and KS4 - Grade descriptors 1-9

Writing Assessment Materials (whole assessment system) - KS3 and KS4 - Grade descriptors 1-9

In brief, this resource is a full assessment system that can be used both in English and other subjects (literacy across the curriculum) in order to assess the writing grades of students and to help them to diagnose their own areas for development, as well as setting targets for improving writing skills. This is not available anywhere else other than on the TES This system is all my own work and I have created the grade descriptors from scratch, using: The GCSE descriptors or writing from AQA and Edexcel combined – therefore, they are as generic as they can be and are not board specific. My own extensive experience of English teaching and exam marking. Basically, I have broken down each grade from 1-9 and matched them to the skills that pupils should need in order to achieve the grade (as a best fit). This has been done by calculating how old GCSE grades (A*-G) correlate against 1-9 and benchmarking a low C at the Grade 4. Obviously, there will be variation of grades at the end of the GCSE year for year 11, as they are set on a national curve BUT these resources lay the foundations for assessment in KS3 and to ensure that teachers within a school or department can benchmark and describe what they expect each grade to look like and what students need to be able to do to hit a grade in writing. Therefore offering complete consistency and clarity for students and teachers within a school. The resource includes: Grade descriptors for writing for 1-9 9 assessment sheets for each grade 1-9 for both AO4 and AO5 9 assessment sheets for each grade 1-9 for punctuation only, so that teachers can break down the focus if they want to A training PowerPoint for all staff that allows the lead to deliver a fully interactive session All resources for that session A training PowerPoint for the English dept. that allows the lead to deliver a full explanation of how to use the materials All resources for that session This resource is all ready for you to start working with as soon as you download it.

An Inspector Calls AQA Lit 2017 How to Tackle The Question / Revision materials

An Inspector Calls AQA Lit 2017 How to Tackle The Question / Revision materials

This is a series of lessons to help prepare students for the AQA Lit question on An Inspector Calls (new spec 2017 exam). All lessons presume that the play has been read and studied and these are purely to help revise key themes and to detail to students exactly how they need to write a response - pitched at that is from Grade 4 to Grade 9 - there are two sets of lessons and they are differentiated. The first ppt. picks out key themes and encourages a framework for students to revise the key themes in the play on their own or by themselves. i.e they skim read looking for quotes. The other ppt.s (differentiated versions - one is 4-7; the other is 5-9) show students how to write effectively about the play whilst hitting the mark scheme. Students are given copies of the generic AQA mark scheme that they break down and use to help them to understand how to succeed. They also mark sample answers / WAGOLLs for success against the markscheme to help their understanding of how to write their own. There are example answers - never seen before, created by me with a formula for how to write responses to highest grades. Best to teach the Revision lesson, followed by the TEE lesson, then let students answer the exam style question. In the next two lessons, then reteach HOW to shape and answer and introduce MAD (Make a Difference) Time - showing and reminding students exactly what they should have done. Also included is a really useful quote sheet for AIC to help students to learn key quotes.

Teacher Training Session - Differentiation

Teacher Training Session - Differentiation

This is a full powerpoint with resources at the back of it, designed to help someone to lead a twilight session (approximately 1 1/2hrs to 2hrs) on why we need to differentiate and ideas of how it can be done. The session is interactive with little exercises for the teachers to take art in s that they can consider the impact of the structures for differentiating in their own classrooms. Training covers differentiation for different types of learners as well as ability. If you're buying this, you will need to have some knowledge of differentiation to deliver it, so that you can deconstruct the activities after you have tried them with the trainees.
