LEARNING AND EXAM MINDSET COACH: ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHER

INTRODUCING STUDENT WORKSHOPS

Here at NexStep Learning, we don’t only run lessons with the integration of NLP for ease of learning and retention, wellbeing and fun, we also run workshops. Workshops are a great way of learning for students. It gives students the opportunity to meet up with, and work with fellow students from a variety of different places. Some students may even know each other. This small workshop style of working is often new to students, and is a real-life example of teamwork in the working world – preparing them for them for their next stage in life. Each workshop targets the skills required for ‘Technical Accuracy’, previously known as SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar). These skills are required for all written subjects and carry marks for the final grade. All sessions are run online, in small groups of up to 6.

Writing for purpose

Writing for Purpose is the final writing question on one of the papers, and is worth 50% of the marks: 25% of the whole exam! This is an ideal opportunity to get together and hone your skills for this very specialised style of writing. We will recap the language techniques and start putting them into practice. Whether you want to write to persuade; inform; explain; describe; argue; entertain etc. you need to know which language techniques to put in and how to structure the text. In this 2.5 hour workshop you will get the opportunity to explore how the language techniques create different effects on the reader, and how to structure your text for the maximum impact. Following on from the workshop you will be given 2 writing for purpose exam questions which will be marked, with detailed feedback, provided within 1 month of the date of the workshop.
