An introduction to NCELP pedagogy and resources, a presentation for Spanish workshops 2021
Presentation by Nick Avery and Jo Cairns for Spanish workshops 2021, organised by the Spanish Department for Education in the UK.
As part of its efforts to improve language curriculum design and pedagogy, NCELP has been developing and resourcing Key Stage 3 schemes of work for Spanish, German and French. This session sets out some of the key features of the NCELP schemes, including systematic revisiting, carefully planned practice and balancing of content. We also talk about three specific components of language knowledge that are covered: phonics, vocabulary and grammar. Finally, we present Spanish resources to illustrate how these ideas may be enacted in classroom teaching materials.
