Using the freely available SAMs and past papers for 2017 and 2018, I have created this comprehensive list of essay questions on the literary texts/films set by AQA, Edexcel and Eduqas/WJEC.
Use the filters at the top of each column (click the little downward arrow) to show only questions for the texts you teach, and you can easily create a list of past paper questions to give to students. This makes it easy for you to set essay tasks, and when the time comes, for students to complete their own revision essays.
If you found this resource useful, please leave a comment - would you like me to create a version which includes the suggested content from the markschemes too?
Resources for a lesson with a lower set on protecting the environment and phrases with 'zu&'.
Lots of room for fun (with phrases such as &';I refuse to take the bus!') and extension by coordinating sentences (&'...but I promise to protect the environment!&';).
Includes Diamond 9 activity (with support for discussing in German), guess my sentence activity, battleships, and Os and Xs. (Another successful interview lesson!)
A task to write a holiday complaint letter with step-by-step instructions to create a good answer.
Used as an opportunity for students to write their first controlled-asessment style piece of writing, with plenty of support and room for extending with adverbial phrases (on separate sheet). I hope you have as much fun reading/teaching it as I did making it up!
This lesson is based on a text published by the Goethe Institut on the subject of wedding traditions (https://www.goethe.de/de/spr/unt/kum/kal.html) and was designed for an interview lesson addressing the Edexcel A Level topic ‘die Rolle von Traditionen’ and introducing/revising the Conditional/Konjunktiv.
a full, detailed lesson plan (both .pdf and .doc formats) - this includes a transcript for the listening exercise (to be read aloud by the teacher)
a PowerPoint presentation
two versions of the accompanying worksheet (one with extra support) (both in .pdf and .doc formats for printing/editing respectively).
There is enough material here for 2-3 hours of teaching, or perhaps 90 minutes of teaching and a homework to complete the writing task.
Lesson introducing rooms in the house, including a guessing-game for the starter, a match-up, a reading activity, battleships for speaking practice (handout version is already available on TES), a longer reading activity and an ongoing dictionary task as an extension activity. Successfully used as an interview lesson!
Series of lessons guiding pupils through Expo 3 Rouge Module 3, covering:
1. parts of the body and 'avoir mal a' construction
2. other symptoms using 'etre' and 'avoir'
3. reflexive verbs in the past tense
4. negative sandwiches
5. phrases that take infinitives
I made this for my top set, but it was also useful for middle sets!
Fun independent activity for KS4 German. In lessons we covered jobs, personality words, and modal verbs: then students created a flowchart quiz using questions about personality and future plans (I used lucidchart.com to create mine!). They loved bringing in their flowcharts and doing each other's!
Group writing task which could last for two lessons. Used as the concluding task for a series of lessons on work experience, pupils must produce a full report about their imaginary work experience placement using the task sheets, then pupils assess each other's reports and find words/phrases which will be useful to them!
When I taught this topic (Module 3 from Studio 1) I used a sentence builder at some point in each lesson to demonstrate the relevant language point. For revision I put them all together to remind the students of their learning. Great for a variety of games: Guess my sentence, translation into French, hands-down questioning (say an English sentence, turn the projector off after 3 seconds, and pupils give an answer from memory), the beep game ('beep' one element out - student guesses).
