Hi everyone, could really do with some advice as I'm about to reach the end of my tether. I'm head of a psychology department where the average point score of the AS students equates to roughly a D grade. I'm under huge amounts of pressure to get AS success rates and ALPs to benchmark (isn't everyone!). Students who are predicted A-C are no concern as they will be fine but the students predicted D/E are a real worry. We're currently doing the following to support the lower ability students: 1:1 support; extra classes; all varities of active learning ideas; regular essay writing; different AfL techniques; past papers and looking at mark schemes; simplfied revision booklets...and so on...! With only a few full teachning weeks after the Easter holidays, I was wondering if there's anything else we could be doing? What do other people do to support the lower ability students? Any suggestions/ideas/advice will be enormously appreciated!
