Assessment for Learning and Developing Writing

Sue Lownsbrough mentored cluster 1 which consisted of the following 2 projects:

Emojis in English and ESOL: Kendal College and South Lakes Community Learning

This project focused on a learner-led strategy incorporating the universal language of emojis, to ignite learner motivation, engagement and build resilience, by concentrating on persuasive, emotive writing skills. Feedback showed learners and tutors found the approach engaged learners and helped them to make progress in GCSE, Functional Skills, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses.

Developing Writing: Lakes College

This project aimed to establish a planning tool in vocational areas, to help learners complete longer writing tasks, and to build a bridge between English and vocational subjects.
