It was brilliant today! The students gained so much from the workshop. The answers to questions and discussion at the end was thoughtful: the facilitators went out of their way to ensure students understood that this was their personal interpretation and they then explained why. It’s clear that K22 are very knowledgeable about the text, Priestley and important contextual factors.
The leaders asked me beforehand what exam board we use and whether students get marks for context to ensure that they didn’t provide information that wouldn’t relevant to our students. Year 11 are now really prepared for their mock examination next week and their actual GCSE in a few months!
