Shakespeare Controlled Assessment Timing

Discussion in 'English' started by Taxman82, Mar 18, 2011.

  1. We're gearing up toward the Shakespeare and Literary Heritage Controlled Assessment and are currently teaching the Shakespeare, with accompanying ELH texts to follow. Problem is, we'ver fallen into a timing trap with the Easter Holidays being followed by a two day week (thanks Wills) which is then followed by our year 10s going on work experience for two weeks. We're planning on splitting the CA into two sittings, with Shakespeare before Easter and ELH some time in June.
    This seems like a particularly inelegant solution to me, as comparisons are required at key points in the essay. Has anyone else fallen into a similar trap? Any bright ideas would be welcome.

    I would strongly advise going to SMT and begging sometime so that you can get the whole thing finished by Easter. Even if they manage to link the texts, they'll forget everything they were thinking or have been taught by June.
