Hi there! Brand new here as a Trainee Teacher so looking for any ideas you may have for teaching a newly-created, but very disruptive group of Year 9's who have opted out of doing language for GCSE. I will be teaching them Spanish, a language they've never studied. They had been studying French up until now but have been moved out and all put into a new group with me until the end of the school year. The advantage is that I have pure creative control over what to teach, and intend on getting to know them to appeal to their interests and also to let them have a choice in what they learn. I will also be getting them to use Wakelet in the ICT room every two weeks to collate a collection of materials for a Cultural Project about Spain in whatever topic they want..food, music, customs, festivals, etc. But with regard to teaching language and keeping it interesting for a group clearly not interested and very difficult to manage, what are your ideas for delivering content? Recycling Year 7 material doesn't seem fitting, as it doesn't seem to suit their age, and learning greetings, colours and numbers feels a bit too elementary. Any ideas would be extremely helpful! Thanks!
