Pearson Webinar series for Primary and Secondary Teachers

Raising the bar: external exam classes at secondary

Many secondary school teachers are tasked with preparing students for external exams at the same time as following the curriculum, but need this really be a juggling act? In this webinar we will show how these two aims fit together and compliment one another, all the while providing teachers will practical activities which will leave students both motivated and prepared.

Something for everyone: motivating mixed ability classes 

I teach mixed ability classes:  I don’t want my strongest students held back and I don’t want the weaker ones left behind. Sound familiar? As teachers, we’re often told that we have to respond to the needs of all students. But what’s the best way to go about it? In this session we will propose practical activities to offer both extra support and challenge in the secondary English classroom, keeping all students busy and motivated, regardless of their level.

Selectividad and beyond at Bachillerato 

Selectividad preparation is a serious business for students because high marks are often the key to their university and course of choice. In this session we’ll offer upper-secondary teachers useful tips and original ideas to prepare for the selectividad English exam, but we’ll also look beyond it too: at the language skills that our students really need and how to develop them.

Assess for success 

We all want our pupils to become more independent and responsible for their learning, but this won’t happen without the right support. Enter assessment for learning! In this practical session we will consider how best to approach target-setting, feedback, self and peer-assessment in the primary classroom, all with the aim of empowering learners and raising standards.
