A-Level lesson ideas - help!

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by abell4, Nov 24, 2011.

  1. I am an NQT Spanish teacher and teach two really lovely and bright Y12 and Y13 groups. The school's A Level language classes seem to go along the lines of ''here is an article related to a topic, put the paragraphs in order/ write some headlines/ match the summary to the paragraph/ write your own summary, find these words, find synonyms, andwer these reading comp questions and than you good bye''. I really struggle with this every lesson as i feel like it's boring them. They really enjoy debates and responded so well to an interactive activity i designed for them to work on online.

    Any ideas/ suggestions/ links to how to make my lessons more varied and interesting while still challenging and stretching them would be amazing.

    Martin is right. Very often A-level students don't have much world knowledge so need teaching about topics before they can have opinions on them. A2 is like general studies through the medium of a foreign language. That is part of the fun of it.
