Understanding Levels - An MFL Example



A Key Stage 3 MFL teacher talks about levels of achievement with her Year 7 students, showing how an understanding of levels can be woven into lessons effectively, in this assessment and CPD resource.

Maria Mistretta, a French and Italian teacher at St Joseph's in Swindon, believes in explaining levels to students from their first days at secondary school, to help develop their foreign language skills.

The video shows how an understanding of working at a particular level can be woven into the lesson effectively. The example of a Year 7 class is used as the school believes it must instil good habits from an early stage.

Assistant headteacher Ben Slater explains why an understanding of levels is key to getting children to improve and develop within the classroom and independently.

Especially useful for those teaching modern languages, it also has general messages for teachers across all subjects.
