FEEDBACK FROM 2018/19 FACE TO FACE CPD SESSIONS IN SCHOOLS AND FIRST WEBINARS

In late 2017, 2018 and 2019 I have carried out many sessions in schools around England generally with about 10 delegates.   The sessions have concentrated on analysis for the cinema essay question, analysis for the literature essay question and incorporating oral work into lessons and preparing the Individual Research Project from the start of the course.

The courses are accompanied by a booklet to take away as well as all an online repository on the dolanguages site for the templates for the various exercises featured and useful links.

  • First of all I wanted to say that I really enjoyed it! I had never done such a session before, and was quite apprehensive at first.

  • Your voice was very calm and clear and easy to listen to.
  • I liked that the whole session was in French.
  • I think the booklet is very comprehensive with lots of great ideas which I will definitely use with my students.

Kiffe kiffe demain webinar

1.  Thank you for an insightful and illuminating webinar commentary and presentation. I felt simultaneously inspired and reassured. 

I think that the practical activities you suggest in the booklet, including grids, tables, practice titles etc., will help the students to analyse. One of the major challenges I face is the lack of group dynamic, so setting practical work always helps them to discuss the task.

2.  Thanks Steve. I really enjoyed yesterday. I felt like I was actually learning something myself which was super.
