Inspiring – excellent choice of extracts, easy to flick through to find activities and a clear choice of differentiation options... It incorporates AFL and encourages self-improvement in pupils... Focuses teachers' aims and gives students clear targets... It fits in with our assessment strands and explains APP clearly through use
Excellent, focused and helpful with targeted activities and resources accessible to all... It can be used by intervention teachers as a one off and supports all other learning. It helps improve AF progress step by step.
An excellent resource, extremely detailed and well-planned... I really like the fact that it all links to the APP foci and the clear objectives ensure it is easy for teachers to plan
Deals thoroughly with the AFs... clearly picks out what students should focus on to get higher levels... The presentation and layout are clear and well set out...
Very interesting. It ticks all the criteria
I like the fact that it addresses APP which has become so important in English teaching... it is interesting and useful to have reading and writing activities... Covers a range of assessment focus points and National Curriculum for Year 9. Definitely good to have some clear APP resources available for use in a department... Using PEE successfully will be a good stepping stone for GCSE work.
Reinforces learning with regard to reading and writing assessment foci... Good stand-alone lessons... could be used for cover work... Good presentation... clear to follow.
Links in well with the NC work in the English strategy and is also applicable to lower-ability GCSE work for Reading and Paper 1.
