TT456: What is Evaluation?

My task, when appointed  Subject Learning Leader at my school, was to improve GCSE results in RE, which had fallen below national average.  Our school puts through a whole cohort of students rather than selective or option groups.  One of the biggest issues was to better support students in their responses to the longer answer evaluative questions.  This report focuses on the use of critical thinking skills, including argumentation to improve evaluative responses in the 12-mark questions, and explains how, using these strategies,  it is perfectly possible for them to achieve full marks in their answers.
