AQA Languages GCSE Speaking Easy Marking and Feedback Sheet

AQA Languages GCSE Speaking Easy Marking and Feedback Sheet

(0)
This sheet is designed to enable ‘live’ marking during speaking mock exams and also to enable quick but detailed feedback to students. It can also be used for a ‘walking, talking mock’. I have made the wording of the mark scheme clearer and more concise to render it clearer for students. Grade boundaries are included so that the sheet is a complete mark scheme. The grade boundaries are for the Spanish 2018 exam. The French are as follows: Foundation 38 /5 34/4 25/3 16/2 7/1 Higher: 53/9 48/8 44/7 38/6 32/5 27/4 (22/3 - no longer used - no grade 3 at Higher)
AQA GCSE Spanish Higher Writing Handbook

AQA GCSE Spanish Higher Writing Handbook

(0)
A comprehensive set of materials to help students prepare for the writing exam. Guidance on each question, including success criteria from the new mark scheme (drawing on my training as an AQA examiner for the new specification). Comprehensive vocabulary lists and tasks to help students revise key structures and vocabulary. I have added the vocab lists as excel lists so that they can be easily copied and pasted into various revision applications, or simply copied and pasted onto word documents. They are the ‘vocab sgeets’ referred to in the handbook. The structure of the handbook encourages spaced repeition and low stakes testing to embed this key language.

AQA GCSE Written Coursework Self-Assessment Sheet

(14)
I have done this for the task 'A Day Out', but to adapt it for any other task all you would need to do is copy and paste the task bullet points from the spec. The grade descriptions are adapted from the Module 3 marking criteria and the spec grade descriptions and are of course for rough guidance purposes only - hope yo find them suitable! Please do let me know if you don&'t - all constructive criticism welcome honest!

(0)
To help pupils of all abilities build and add complexity to texts. Includes activities to get pupils started with the mats, and to get them reflecting on how to improve their writing and speaking. The 2 mats(KS3 and KS4) are best printed out in colour on A3 and laminated. You could do them double sided, as the KS3 side provides good support for less able pupils at KS4.

GCSE French Writing and Speaking to Grade B Handbook

GCSE French Writing and Speaking to Grade B Handbook

(0)
This is a 12 page booklet / unit of work which will aid learners with a target grade of a B to improve confidence and build vocabulary through drilling and text level work. It is stand alone (though pupils will need access to a dictionary) and therefore ideal for homework and/or cover or independent work. It has been produced after careful study of AQA and Edexcel marking criteria and exemplar work. I have tried to keep the vocabulary as general and cross-topic as possible. I would say that it is ideal for those just starting the course, or those who have to complete Controlled Assessment outside of a topic (i.e. re-sits / those who have missed out or who have underachieved and need to catch up). I have focused only on the present and past in order to maintain accessibility, as through experience these are the two easiest tenses for learners to produce independently.

Speaking Controlled Assessment Peer Assessment and Next Steps Sheet

(0)
A sheet with AQA GCSE marking criteria to enable peer assessment and reflection on next steps for improvement in Speaking Controlled Assesssment preparation. Is for Spanish speaking, but with minor adjustments can be for writing and any language. However, I will adjust for writing Controlled Assessment for those less confident or new to the mark scheme. Can be used for peer assessment, but also to aid self-assessment, or for FLAs/TAs as guidance. To be used in conjunction with Higher Literacy Mat for Spanish: this can be found in the free uploads section under my username.
