Hi all, Hope you are enjoying your weekends. I am in a bit of a pickle! I'm a PGCE MFL student and have been invited for an interview next week. I've done all of my research (poring over OFSTED reports, looking at how the MFL dept is set up at the school etc) and understand that Spanish (my specialism) is not offered at KS3 but in Year 9 students do an immersion-type course where they are prepared to take a GCSE should they want to as one of their option choices. On receiving my letter in the post today I've been told I must deliver a 20-25 minute lesson to a mixed ability class of year 8s on a topic of my choice. I'm thinking of covering clothes/school uniform but am wondering how on earth to even begin going about it as all I am thinking is that the students are going to have no baseline of knowledge for me to work on. I've thought about maybe taking in some realia and doing some choral repetition of clothes vocab followed by a worksheet where they must write down the English next to pictures of clothes (that we will have already covered in the choral repetition) then supplying some role-play speaking cards where students must complete a dialogue (key words such as llevo and ¿qué llevas? to be supplied on a ppt. slide) and as a plenary students must use post-it notes to write down as many words in Spanish as they have learned. I can then take their suggestions and test their knowledge in English - bringing it all together. Therefore, suggestions on my mini-plan would be greatly appreciated (especially on how I can differentiate throughout) and some reassurance that I will not be teaching students who have absolutely no Spanish! Thanks in advance. A very hopeful student teacher!!
