Raise Your Expectations

Description

An MFL teacher shows how using positive encouragement, raising expectations and challenging expected levels of attainment has had a huge impact on achievement in a lower ability Year 8 class.

At CTC Kingshurst Academy near Birmingham, modern foreign languages teacher Sharon Clift and her TA show how they use a range of methods to inspire confidence and enthusiasm in her Key Stage 3 French class.

Careful planning, positive reinforcement, and real belief in her students has allowed Sharon to use far more complex language structures than her students' expected ability levels require, with a direct impact on results.
