Please find below a range of resources shared very kindly by contributors at two events which took place at the ALL London and Northeast Branches in 2018

 

GCSE writing moderation

ALLNE GCSE writing moderation booklet

The writing moderation booklet includes marked texts in French, German and Spanish from schools who use the AQA exam board.  The document is a good resource for MFL teams to use to look at pupil work and to moderate their assessment across the three languages. Some of the pieces could be used as AFL starter writing tasks with pupils and to improve creative writing using extended grammar and complex language structure. Thank you to ALL Northeast for sharing this resource from their recent writing moderation event.
