Full Scheme of Work for Practice Individual Oral
This is a scheme of work for a practice Individual Oral for the IBDP English A: Language and Literature course. This unit lasts between 4-5 weeks depending on how much you want pupils to do at home in preparation. The texts used in this unit are '1984' by Orwell, 'Permanent Record' by Edward Snowden and the 'Nosedive' episode from the Black Mirror series. As this is only a practice and not prepration for the real IO, there is much more guidance and support included. The aim of the SoW is to build up the skills needed for this assessment and support pupils in the preparation and planning needed. The unit ends with pupils delivering their presentation and receiving peer marks and feedback. By the end of the unit pupils will have a better understanding of the process and of their own strengths and weaknesses. They will end the unit by completing a self-reflection sheet that can be carried forward to the real IO later on. This SoW works on the premise that pupils have read '1984'.
