Course Details

This course will look at developing pupil ownership and personalisation in the folio, including a closer look at submitting reports as a discursive piece. It will also provide an overview of planning and delivery of the critical reading aspect of the National 5 exam. There will be opportunities for moderation and discussion throughout the day.

You will:

  • look closely at examples of reports written for the discursive essay at a range of marks, what the SQA is looking for out of them and how to support pupils in writing them
  • moderate a variety of folio pieces across levels
  • discuss a range of ways to stimulate original folio pieces and support young people in editing their own work and managing deadlines
  • be given information about commonly used literature for the Scottish Set Text and Critical Essay and approaches to teaching them

By the end of the day, you will have a large volume of resources, a deeper understanding of standards at National 5 and a list of different methods of approaching these two parts of the National 5 English course. Most importantly, you will have had plenty of time for professional dialogue across schools.
