    I am an NQT and fortunate enough to have
    been let loose on an AS and an A2 Spanish class. I teach the topics of the WJEC
    spec and my colleague teaches the grammar. My confidence is dwindling as the
    pupils get bored of the reading tasks. There is a lot of reading to be done in
    order to improve all the other skills and provide the pupils with some content
    to write and speak about!! Can anyone suggest any ways of making reading tasks
    more engaging and pacey as we seem to spend a long time reading the texts
    before we exploit them and pupils are becoming disengaged.





    All advice appreciated. Thank you in
    advance.

    I'd suggest they receive the texts in advance and prepare them, i.e. look up and learn the vocabulary. They have to do some of the work. I've found that going through an unprepared text in class can take the whole lesson.
    If they're complaining about being bored, they should not be doing A level in anything, but something more in line with their immaturity like one of those Mickey Mouse subjects masquerading as A level.
