Hi folks, Had a search but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. My question is: how do we ensure that all pupils are able to progress in a mixed ability class? I am planning a lesson for beginner's Spanish, where the objectives are to be able to say what someone's name is, what age they are and when that person's birthday is. I am already envisaging who will not be able to cope with this based on my experience with the class (I don't like thinking this way...). I think the majority will be able to do this fairly well. If they do, we will then move onto to describing physical characteristics. For the ones that didn't "get" it (or didn't want to get it), how do I prevent them from falling even further behind? There is already a large knowledge gap (different factors like attendance, attitude). I constantly feel like I am having to pitch lessons so low that the ones who are really capable and considering taking our subject next year are being put off.
