Help... student friendly GCSE grade descriptions for C/D borderline project!

Discussion in 'English' started by Slouie, Jan 4, 2011.

  1. Does anyone know of any 'student friendly' grade descriptions, especially for C and D grades!
    I'm not a teacher but I run an Aimhigher project for C/D borderline students to visit a local theatre, see a show and take part in a review writing workshop with a local newspaper Arts Editor. We plan to incorporate a student handbook with past students work, and include a simple description of the difference between grade C and grade D work. But I am struggling to find anything suitable any known examples/links much appreciated.

    Thanks

    The Specifications contain narrative descriptions of performance at Grades A, C and F which should be understandable for students but might need a little tweaking. These were written by QCDA so are common to all boards. For AQA, they're on P29 of the English Language spec.
     
  4. D=Describe C=ExplainB=ExploreI think I might have a bit more detail on the posters in my classroom. Although these were culled from a Spec in the days when it was still a syllabus, it still holds true.
