How to Teach GCSE English Re-Sits to Disaffected Students at Post-16
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
From the author of the hugely successful SPaG Book and its best-selling follow-up Outstanding Literacy comes the ultimate guide to teaching GCSE English re-sits at Post-16.
This book focuses on five key themes:
1. Teaching English;
2. Teaching students who’ve failed to secure a C grade grade 5 in English at secondary school and are therefore bound by legislation to sit the exam again, up to the age of eighteen or until they ‘pass’;
3. Teaching students who are likely to be feeling disaffected, disenfranchised and demotivated by the prospect of once again studying a subject they didn’t pass the first time around, even after eleven years of formal education;
4. Teaching students who are, by definition of re-sitting a subject they’ve previously failed, ‘less able’ or ‘lower performing’ than their peers who passed it aged sixteen; and
5. Teaching students who are now in some form of post-16 education or training, most likely in a sixth form college or further education institution, and are therefore to be considered ‘adult students’.
