I have asked for help with resources because all I've got at the moment (for mixed ability teaching in a boys' grammar) in Years 8 and 9 is some Echo 2 and 3 textbooks (with CDs) and a resource and assessment file with half the pages and tapes missing. I doubt the budget will be huge, but the school has promised to help me. What should I ask for? I'm thinking of asking for those Echo work books (not hugely fun, but differentiated into A for reinforcement and B for extension, and relevant to the topics), Or else I could ask for some magazines perhaps? Anything else that would help to stretch the more able or to support the less able?
