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.

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.

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.

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!

Edexcel Drama GCSE 2016 1-9 Exam Questions 9a and 9b - Lessons on how to analyse and evaluate

Edexcel Drama GCSE 2016 1-9 Exam Questions 9a and 9b - Lessons on how to analyse and evaluate

This resource is a huge ppt. consisting of 51 slides with activities and resources designed to enable a teacher to adapt the learning based on where you get to, in each lesson, by entering a new slide with a LO at the start. Alternatively, it could be taught in a whole chunk - which would probably take a full day. The materials break down which part of the exam students are focussing on, how it fits in, what the question will look like and then how to tackle it effectively. The material shows the different stages from analysis to evaluation and draw in links from English teaching to help students to write evaluatively effectively. Aiming for top band on each of the two questions, this resource will help teachers to really deconstruct how students can get the best answers in this section and offers WAGOLLs for both questions to start students off. The WAGOLLs are based on a performance of Our Town - but you can obviously adapt .

AQA GCSE Drama Section C - Live Performance question Training for teachers and materials to teach

This is a ppt. of 42 original slides that have been created to train drama teachers on the new section C of the AQA Drama GCSE. The materials, although used to train teachers were created so that they could be used to actually teach so, what you have in this ppt is a series of tasks that can be delivered to students so that they have a full overview of the scheme of assessment for the whole course, what the exam looks like, how it is marked and then how to tackle the section C question. There is a break down of the mark scheme and a suggested structure for how to answer with example answers that can be marked and used as a template. It would take approx. 3 to 4 lessons to teach to students.
