ICT comments

Hi folks - sorry, I didn't realise it would make you sign up. Still, I suppose it's evidence you did your homework. Or even, in Amy's case, did it twice!

I have discovered that the handout I gave you today with the odd mistakes in came about because someone was reading off a pdf from the exam board, in order to make it into a word file.... I think our version is more fun though!

Language and ICT- AS level

The textbook for this module - written by the chief examiner, Tim Shortis, has online support at:

Check it out and see what you think.

In particular, my AS level English Language class should make sure they've looked at 'U11 Texting IT' as their homework for this week (Tues 27th Feb). Post a comment to this blog entry to show you've done your homework and thought about it!

Something to read

This article by Ursula LeGuin (who wrote the Wizard of Earthsea books) discusses why we all need to keep reading children's books.


Let me know what you think.

First Post

Okay folks, the idea is this:
I put up interesting English things for
1: English Language A level
2: English Literature A level
3: General Reading for all ages
4: anything vaguely connected which I come across.

You can send me things and I'll add them, or you can post comments to particular posts... some of these posts might be something I've asked a class to look at and comment on for homework, some of them might just be random.
