This is a full scheme of work for the CIE 0500 Language IGCSE or the 0990 GCSE. This is a very thorough and detailed set of lessons that introduces and teaches all of the skills required to perform well in the exam. The scheme of work should last between 5-6 weeks depending on your class.


The lessons follow a step-by-step structure and build up the skills needed through lots of practice and a range of different activities. The scheme of work focuses on both generic analysis, summary writing and writing for a purpose tasks as well as tasks that closely replicate the questions in the exam. A range of sources are used in this scheme of work so that pupils can practice their skills on multiple texts. Each question is deconstructed and broken down so pupils understand what they are required to do, how to plan and how to write up a successful answer.


There is also a full mock paper included in this bundle so pupils can work through an exam style paper in lesson, as the unit progresses. The mark scheme is also included either for teacher marking or peer marking. There are also  PDF checklists, peer assessment sheets and end of unit review sheets included in the bundle which are useful when conducting practice questions in the classroom or as revision. The lessons cover a range of activities such as pair work, group work, verbal feedback, group analysis, presentations, carousels and various types of peer assessment. Several slides include teacher notes at the bottom in order to give extra information or direction.
