Teaching Exam Techniques - KS4 English

Description

Teacher trainers Malcolm Reed and Sasha Matthewman scrutinise footage of a lesson on exam techniques, taught by English teacher Clint Michael Reneau at Haydon School.

Using a question on Steinbeck's "Of Mice & Men", the experts watch as Clint teaches essay writing techniques to his class, in a lesson from the SchoolsWorld Uncut Classroom series.

Clint focuses on the point, quote and comment writing structure, which he hopes will enable his students to raise their grades from an E to a C grade, and from a C to an A*.

Malcolm and Sasha, both PGCE tutors at the University of Bristol, then examine his techniques, discussing what works, as well as suggesting alternative strategies.

This is part of a series where experts provide helpful insights on classroom practice, which can be put to use by all teachers.
