See One. Do One. Teach One: 12 lessons to support GCSE English
See One. Do One. Teach One provides a series of 12 engaging lessons for GCSE English pupils, with a particular focus on CCEA specification. The lessons have been created for pupils of all abilities and are based on tried and tested methods within a classroom setting. Pupils learn through direct observation of each task.
Each lesson will act as a springboard for NQTs or can provide an opportunity to review and refresh teaching approaches for GCSE English Language. Using Rosenshine’s Principles for Instruction, the book primarily focuses on direct instruction and scaffolding, live modelling and annotation, and further opportunities to act on feedback using extension tasks.
Pupils ‘see’ an example in action delivered by an expert; ‘do’ by completing a related task under the supervision of their teacher; and finally they ‘teach’ one another by using carefully constructed questions for micro teaching. Teaching the skill or task helps reinforce the knowledge learned and helps the student develop even further toward mastery. The ‘Teach One’ section includes structured questions to develop vital GCSE recall and oracy skills. Pupils work together to complete independent reading and writing tasks.
