Delivering Scotland’s languages policy
The Education Scotland Modern Languages team has produced a suite of resources including support materials, KaL framework and PowerPoint presentation along with guidance on a generic progression framework for teachers delivering first to second level Modern Languages. The resource is now live and can be accessed on the National Improvement Hub. For further information on the materials and how they can be used to deliver professional learning, please contact Shona Hugh.
Live narrative – Liberton High
Working with teachers at Liberton High in Edinburgh, the Modern Languages team at Education Scotland has created a series of short video clips that demonstrate how practitioners are engaging with the Modern Languages benchmarks at third level in writing. These videos show one approach to planning, assessing and moderating pupil evidence through professional discussion to identify a pupil’s progress against the national benchmarks. The videos and supporting planning materials can be viewed on the National Improvement Hub.
