My teaching method depends on the aims of the student. Often exam performance is the priority. In this case, I work through content as though all information pertained to an exam question. We design structures of response, which deal with difficult questions in a manner that relates directly to the examiner's mark scheme. The first half of the lesson consists of feedback on exam scripts that the student will have sent me prior to the lesson, the second half consists of us tackling new questions and content together.
I graduated last year and since then have been heavily involved in educational programmes, particularly those which relate to bridging the gap between A Level and University thinking. As a student coordinator for both the LPN and CL Global programme, I designed activities to encourage students to think critically about source material, usually, though not always, related to history.
