English language proficiency is developed over time and requires consistency. TF’s Secondary English tuition programme aims to develop the following skills, strategies and dispositions (attitudes and behaviours) in students:

Using Thinking Routines to analyse a variety of issues, eg.

  • Think-Pair-Share
  • See, Think, Wonder
  • Circle of Viewpoints
  • Tug-of-War

Annoting:

– To improve close reading skills (e.g. find connections/trends, discover relationships between characters, make inferences) and increase vocabulary through guided reading and annotating exercises

– To increase grammatical awareness in order to tackle the Editing component and reduce grammatical errors in writing

Checking Soundness of argument:

– Has PEEL structure (scaffolding) been used?

– Is the Explanation clear and logical?

– Is the Example/s given strong and convincing?

– Are there any loopholes in the argument? / Is it easily refuted (proved untrue)?

Checking for Precision, Completeness, Relevance (for the Comprehension & Summary component)

– Precision: accuracy of words and phrasing

– Completeness: no excess or lack of information

– Relevance: addressing the terms of question

Develop ease and confidence in writing through weekly writing exercises
