    1. 1. BUILDING ON FIRM FOUNDATIONS Stevenage SLN 30.06.10
    2. 2. Objectives: <ul><li>To understand how the new GCSE builds on the revised MFL PoS at KS3 and the renewed MFL framework </li></ul><ul><li>To consider implications for teaching at KS4 and at KS3 </li></ul><ul><li>To discuss and share strategies for addressing these issues </li></ul>
    3. 3. The new GCSE What are the features common to all specifications? <ul><li>Four units weighted as follows: Listening 20%, Speaking 30%, Reading 20%, Writing 30%. </li></ul><ul><li>Listening and reading are externally set and assessed and no dictionaries to be used. Tiered papers (Foundation and Higher) with some questions which are common to papers in both tiers </li></ul><ul><li>Speaking and writing : controlled assessment. Some differences between the boards but teachers select the tasks, set them and supervise them. No tiering but tasks are differentiated by outcome. Teachers select the topic or theme for speaking and writing, choosing from the themes in the specification. Sample tasks are provided, which may be used or adapted, or teachers may devise their own </li></ul><ul><li>Speaking : two separate tasks are undertaken during the course. The awarding bodies are still awaiting agreement on recording requirements, so it may not be necessary to record both tasks. No final oral examination is necessary. It is possible that some centres may still wish to assess in this period. Marked by teacher and sample sent to board for moderation. </li></ul><ul><li>Writing : marked by the board </li></ul><ul><li>QCA definitions are used for structures, and grading criteria.

    6. 6. Making comparisons – AT 1 listening Grade A Candidates show understanding of a variety of spoken language that contains some complex language and relates to a range of contexts. They can identify main points, details and points of view and draw simple conclusions. AT 1 NC Level 8 Pupils show that they understand passages including some unfamiliar material and recognise attitudes and emotions. These passages include different types of spoken material from a range of sources. When listening to familiar and less familiar material, they draw inferences, and need little repetition. Year 9 Framework objectives Understand longer sequences of speech, noting relevant points for oral feedback and discussion Strand 1.1 Understanding and responding to the spoken word Listen to authentic speech from different sources, identifying how spoken language varies according to context and purpose Strand 1.2 Developing capability and confidence in listening

AT 1 NC Level 8 Pupils narrate events, tell a story or relate the plot of a book or film and give their opinions. They justify their opinions and discuss facts, ideas and experiences. They use a range of vocabulary, structures and time references. They adapt language to deal with unprepared situations. They speak confidently, with good pronunciation and intonation.

A person’s feelings? </li></ul><ul><li>Tenses and time phrases : hier aujourd’hui demain bientôt l’année prochaine à partir de maintenant l’année dernière plus tard maintenant un jour en ce moment heute morgen gestern später letztes Jahr </li></ul><ul><li>High frequency vocabulary that can change the meaning of a sentence e.g . et, mais, sauf, aussi, pourtant, alors, puis, car, par contre, ou, néanmoins, si Negatives phrases . ne + ???? und aber sondern auch außer denn nie </li></ul><ul><li>Adjectives - a question may use the opposite of the adjective on the audio track </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge of adjectival agreement can help to identify what is being talked about e.g 'beau’ – le paysage ou la plage? </li></ul><ul><li>Intonation of the person speaking can give a clue to the meaning.
