I am the new subject guide for English.
I've started this thread to enable anyone to request ideas and resources as we are at the beginning of the development of ideas for this section of the site.
I am hoping to add resources every week and, to start with, more frequently than this so that we have a range of materials available.
Any suggestions would help and if anyone has any great, non-copyrighted material that may be of use, let me know.
So what texts do you wish to be covered?
All the best for the new academic year.
Can anyone give me some KEY writing points to remember?
Yes, but it depends whether you are talking about English Lit or language and whether you are sitting GCSE or AS/A2 examinations.
The main points I have always taught are to make your point, find a relevant quotation to back this up and analyse it in detail. Other teachers have different ways of teaching this.
I may develop a section on essay writing tips before the modules in January.
Hope this helps to start with. I'll be back with more detail later.
i am new to teaching AS and IGCSE English.. i teach English Language at AS (Paper 1 & 2) and IGCSE (paper 2 & 3) levels...
Could you make any suggetions as to how should i go about planning my syllabus (I'll be taking my current class 8 students to IGCSE exam in the year may 2010.
could you also suggest a few online resources...
Sorry it's taken me a few days to get back to you, but I've been away.
Which board are you using for your IGCSE syllabus?
When it comes to syllabus planning I would first of all see what others are doing in your department (if there are others) and then see if there are ways you can be doing similar things at similar times to gain help and experience that way.
Having a clear working knowledge of the syllabus will help you map out exactly which are the key areas to teach and which are the hardest, so you can tackle them early on.
Make sure you know exactly what is likely to be on the examination and ensure your teaching works towards this.
Try to get on a relavant course which will help you with the syllabus (each exam board runs their own courses and you can try Keynote, Philip Allan and a number of other inset companies, if your school will let you go).
Teachit offer good resources as do NATE, but you have to pay to be a member. You might find something in the TES resource bank.
Hope this helps.
