Jekyll & Hyde exam revision QUIZ CARDS with answers - retaining knowledge for new spec 9-1 revision

3 pages of quiz cards for Jekyll and Hyde to use as part of revision with answers. Each question has a quotation and requires students to: 1. identify who said it 2. identify a technique used by Stevenson 3. Answer a deeper question relating to the effect of the technique When printed off and photocopied back to back each card will have the answer on the reverse. I use these in folders (as shown in the image attached) and students spend the first 5-10 mins of certain lessons revising silently. Every correctly answered question moves a step back in the folder. Any question answered incorrectly moves back to the front. This is known as the Leitner method for retaining knowledge as part of regular testing. The Leitner method dictates which sections of the folder should be revised. The rota for his is also attached.

Assessment without levels English HAPs MAPs LAPs Reading and writing KS3 and KS4

Assessment without levels English HAPs MAPs LAPs Reading and writing KS3 and KS4

These documents outline what makes a student a HAP, MAP or LAP now that curriculum levels have been removed. HAP = High achieving pupil MAP = Middle achieving pupil LAP = low achieving pupil The documents outline the skills required (in both reading and writing) for each student in year 7 through to year 11 to be categorised as a HAP, MAP or LAP in English language. The skills are bullet pointed to allow ease of use for all department members. For KS4 this information is separated into both language and literature. For literature this is broken down even further so that teachers can determine whether students are a HAP, MAP or LAP in specific components of English such as: - poetry - 19th century literature - Shakespeare - modern novel These documents would be ideal for teachers to use when assessing student progress in specific components of their English studies be it language or literature. Once used, the student work can then be compared to their target in order to track progress.
