Teaching methods

Team games – Team games are used to encourage the students to talk and listen to each other. They must reach agreements and support each other in order to successfully achieve the outcomes of the game.

Modelling/demonstration – Most of the students do not understand what we require from them and we model/ demonstrate all the different aspects of the exam.

Discussion – The students discuss and debate each other’s’ topics of interest in order to encourage respect and listening skills.

One to one – All of the students receive a lot of 1:1 attention from the tutor and also the student ambassadors. We listen to their problems, their ideas and respect what they tell us. As a result of this over time we had had various ‘disclosures’ which reflect the amount of trust that is given and earned throughout the week.

Student Ambassadors – The student ambassadors are excellent support throughout the week and the pupils enjoy their input. The pupils and ambassadors relate to each other and the SAs are excellent role models for them.

Positive language – Students are taught to exclude negative language and are only permitted to use positive language throughout the week. They are expected at all times to express themselves and talk about themselves and each other in a positive way. Many of them see themselves in a completely different way by the end of the week because of this approach.

You tube – Examples of good and bad speakers. Poets speaking their own poetry e.g. Michael Rosen
