teaching English yr11 exam practice papers

Discussion in 'English' started by DollyP5, Apr 22, 2012.

  1. I am a supply teacher covering GCSE English to a year 11 class and the HOD has given me
    exam practice papers for all my lessons mainly the Reading/Writing paper. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can best deliver these lessons as she tends to give me the work on the day which allows me no preparation time and I feel like I cant do my best as a result.
    Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated :)

    You need an exam paper before the lesson as you need to know the text. Firstly, for reading focus on how you set about starting reading the text and then I would do one question per lesson. Break down the question so you model the answer and then they have a go themselves. Make sure you mark each question so that they can see their progress as this is important the nearer it gets to the exam. It is very prescriptive teaching I think at this stage as their are definite skills needed for exams and time management is a major one. You could always look on the exam board's website to see if you can pull of an exam paper so at least you are prepared. Good luck.
