CILT, the National Centre for Languages
"Mind the Gap!" provides practical advice to help teachers in both phases bridge the gap between primary and secondary language learning, outlining the importance of key players sharing teaching skills, knowledge about the pupils' achievement and experiences. The book considers initiatives at national, local and school level which support continuity and progression, and puts the pupil at the centre of the process. It suggests appropriate methodology, examples of assessment, records of achievement and describes joint projects and activities which strengthen links between the schools and teachers involved. Following an introduction, the book contains seven chapters: (1) Getting together; (2) Planning together for continuity and progression; (3) Transfer of information and assessment; (4) Teachers working together; (5) Bringing children together--a Primary Languages Day; (6) Practical activities to support mixed groups in Year 7; and (7) Conclusion. Appended are: (1) Sources of further information and support; and (2) Resources.
