A change in ideology a new active classroom for a new nc
A change in ideology? A “new” active classroom for a new NC

  • An active classroom is all about moving from:

  • Teacher-centred to learner centred

  • Teacher as transmitter of knowledge -> teacher as organiser of knowledge

  • Teacher as the “do-er” for children -> teacher as “enabler” / facilitator

  • Subject specific focus -> Holistic learning focus

  • Teacher as magician! NOT!


How do our students change and benefit from an active approach
How do our students change and benefit from an active approach?

  • Passive recipients of knowledge -> active and participatory learners

  • Focus on answering questions -> asking questions

  • Spoon fed -> responsible for own learning – reflection

  • Competing with each other -> collaborating

  • Having own say -> listening to others opinions

  • Individual subject learning -> joined up learning “episodes”

“Sir, this is like well ace work,

can we do it again another lesson?”


Thinking about texts
Thinking about texts approach?

  • How do we use texts?

  • Do we always find good “authentic material” to use?

  • Do we get enough mileage out of texts?

  • How can we explore texts in a fresher, new way?

  • How can we link the new NC to what we do do with texts?


It’s time to get active! Let’s think! approach?

How do you feel?!

Text idea 1
Text idea 1 approach?

  • The “silent” starter aka “The Cold Shoulder!” – a list of words, in any order or layout on a page.

  • Results – what is the impact / result of this? New NC links?

  • Potential Pitfalls - ways around the problems.

  • Feedback from the students on the activity


Ready steady read
Ready, steady, read! approach?

  • “Are you ready to read aloud class?”

  • “We’re going to read the text out loud as soon as it appears on the screen!”

  • “Ready?”

  • “Let’s read!”


Text idea 2
Text idea 2 approach?

Le dimanchematin, jereste au lit et je me levevers midi. L’après-midi jevaisau parcet jejoue au foot avec mescamarades de classe. La semenedernièrejesuisalléchez mesgrands-parents maisc’étaitnul!

I know there is a spelling istake!


Text idea 2 how to make it work
Text idea 2 – how to make it work! approach?

  • Colours – yellow is bad! Choose nice word colours or a black background.

  • Make the font big enough to read!

  • Make sure they are reading aloud to start with!

  • Don’t give in if they don’t understand! Just say no! Don’t give away any hints! Launch it, “unscaffolded” Be BRAVE!

  • Once you have a template – SHARE IT!

  • Recycle the idea, but change the words/concepts they need to find so they are not wise to it!


Text images and ict incorporating all 3 into one fabulous activity
Text, images and ICT approach?- incorporating all 3 into one fabulous activity

Photo stories


Using images to inspire photo stories
Using images to inspire photo stories approach?

  • Images are a powerful tool for the MFL teacher.

  • One single topic image – a thousand ideas.

  • Student involvement – image creation.

  • Motivation levels.

  • Creativity levels.

  • PLTS – many can be achieved here.

  • Fantastic final products.

  • Useful for many topics, even the obscure ones! However some non-entities are being taken out! PO etc.


How to set up the task
How to set-up the task approach?

  • Get cameras – beg, steal or borrow!

  • Check your picture policy

  • Get them into groups – you decide, they decide – your choice/their choice?

  • Plan it out first – when do you want to start and finish – lesson allocation

  • Give them the topic – planning in groups

  • Photo shoot + ICT room booked


Family fortunes
Family Fortunes approach?

  • Groups love to work together

  • Not just the family are playing – group planning can be used in class

  • Easy to set up once you have the template

  • Easy to move the activity forward into AT4 work

  • Easy to use as a springboard into drop down menus in Word activities – creative texts
