Coursework guidlines for Edexcel GCSE

Discussion in 'Drama and performing arts' started by Henry8th, Nov 30, 2011.

  1. Hi all, I am having a little trouble just trying to get my head around exactly what Edexcel want my students to do for the Unit 1 coursework. This is my 7th year teaching the Edexcel course (I had a brief one year stint with AQA) and it seems it is still the coursework element that happens to be the where students are loosing marks in the new spec. Under the old spec my coursework was considered outstanding, now despite consultation, ripped and stripped exemplars I still seem to missing that ever illusive A/A* for some of my students in the written element.
    If anyone has any exemplars or even coursework guidelines they have used and would be willing to share that would be great. I have "asked the expert" gone on all the courses and I want to make sure the written work this year is such that the kids aren't disadvantaged in anyway. I would be willing to trade SOW etc or any documents people might want in exchange, I have been in the game 8 years so might have a few things of use lying around,
    Many Thanks in advance.
