I have been teaching at Clevedon School in North Somerset for over 20 years. Many students in my school were not confident in using terms like “evaluate” in their studies. This may be due to a lack of understanding of the skills required or the use of the words themselves. This project looks at ways in which the RS department could help improve the students’ writing skills so that they would feel confident when answering the evaluation question which accounts for 50% of the GCSE paper. It contains plenty of practical resources.
