Circumstances have led me to be rushing back into the classroom after many years' break. I asked if I could visit a school to which I am thinking of applying (even tough it's miles away) expecting to go next week, but I'm going first thing tomorrow.
I'm therefore having a big panic in between collecting children and cooking dinner and I'd be very grateful if any teachers out there could answer the following:
What exactly is RAISE? (I know it's come up at governors' meetings, but I'm a bit hazy!!
What particular intervention strategies do you employ with less able students in the teaching of literacy?
Is there a particular grid to fill in which states whether they are meeting all of the learning objectives and presumably showing what is required at each NC level eg 4a 4b etc? I expect when you set a piece of work you are targeting one or maybe two key objectives?
I'm supposed to have ' up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the different types of qualifications and their suitability for meeting learners’ needs (SEN, G&T etc…)' Obviously Iknow SEN G and T (Gin and Tonic
)but I don't think I even understand the question!!
Finally could some kind soul please direct me to the English syllabus for Years 7 and 8 please?
Obviously if I get an interview I'll be going through all of this with a fine toothe comb, but in the meantime I'd be very grateful for any pointers here so that I don't make any terrible gaffes tomorrow!!
