ABOUT THIS COURSE
This new course is aimed for all teachers of GCSE English Language looking to increase their practical approaches, ideas, and techniques to boost the grades of lower ability borderline grade 4 – 5 students.
The course will focus on ways to develop the weaker student, how to motivate reluctant learners, and ways to stimulate and develop creative ideas appropriate for them. It will also demonstrate how to avoid common pitfalls and break through barriers instigated by reluctant learners.
There will also be focus on the common issues amongst lower ability learners and those who find themselves unable or unwilling to engage with English. Students who struggle with English are not highly skilled readers and writers who can flourish under exam pressure.
This means unpicking the knowledge of the world and words known by these students, combined with their writing skill. It will require our understanding the salient differences in knowledge and skills between students who flourish and those who flounder.
