SPAG in a mess?

Thanks to the marvellous @jabellpepper I am putting these posters around the department.  The QR codes link to his animated Tellegamis which briefly explain key points of grammar.

Students sitting IGCSE this summer need to be aware that with around 7% of their entire IGCSE mark at risk due to poor SPAG, inconsistency is not an option.  Yes it is difficult, yes it is time consuming, but yes it is vital to the clarity and definition of their finished work.  Hopefully this little poster might help.

A Passage to Africa – ideas for analysis

A quick powerpoint for my Year 11 to look at George Alagiah’s writing found in the Edexcel Anthology, section A. The lesson is a revision class and aimed to be used after initial study of the writing. My intention is to link the ideas of using the TRAPPERS mnemonic when wiring creatively to the act of analysing the writing of others.

I will be uploading teaching materials to this post as I write them. I hope they are useful. They are based closely on material found in the Edexcel booklets and will be generally in the form of PowerPoint which I might use in class.
