On Tuesday, Sue used the article ‘¡Vivimos aquí!’ with her top set year 7H. The format she used was the 5 minute lesson plan from Teacher Tool kit and the CREAM & B rule is from a book she bought a few weeks ago, The Perfect Assessment For Learning by Claire Gadsby.
You’ll find the article and Sue’s 5 minute Spanish lesson plan downloads under the cut.
Sue wrote to me about her lesson beforehand: “All of the lesson will be student led apart from the first 5-6 minutes where I will describe their task. It’s all about making them independent learners and (trying) to make them inquisitive about their learning. There is a huge amount of vocabulary in that article that my year 7s will not know, so progression should be immense, and hopefully quick too! I’ll let you know how it went.”
And … it went: Fab!
This is what Sue said after the lesson: “They used the verb ‘vivir’ and we worked on that in the previous lesson, then today they’ve used the article to read and then to write their own piece. Amazing results which we honestly wouldn’t have got without the mags for authentic support. Best result was a 4B, which, 4 weeks in and only 4 proper lessons is pretty good don’t you think? And all using the 5 minute plan too!”
