RTC Evidence OC Langs 2015 This is a template based on the exemplar above which provides good basis for appraising against registered teacher criteria, which includes reflective questions and school expectations. These expectations may need to be adapted to comply with specific OC school goals, but are comprehensive, as are the ways presented in which teachers may fulfill the criteria.
This would be a good starting point for teachers in our department for appraisal. The completed document could be uploaded to your blog, with evidence to support each aspect then curated in appropriate entries.
Expresses opinions with some support on sport. The movie piece is confusing as she attempts indirect speech unsuccessfully and it is not clear that she is relating a movie plot
Range of language – conditional phrases with subjunctive, past tenses and relative pronouns generally successful; reasonable range of vocabulary.
Prepositional verbs such as jugar often incorrect, but generally errors are syntactical and do not significantly hinder communication; the letter is probably the most difficult to follow in terms of poor lexical choices, problems with syntax” salir de a montones de la puerta y empujados hacia el camión.” and lack of opening contextualization.
Kathleen Button Excellence
Confident and well developed piece on Machado which relates his life, work and the movie viewed in historical contexts. Creative writing shows confident and integrated use of language, but is an oddly disjointed attempt at stream of consciousness. Opinions are expressed and justified in all three pieces.
Use of subjunctive/conditional phrase a bit forced in the Machado piece, and some odd relatives, otherwise a good range of language selected and successfully used. It could be noted however, that this type of biographical writing is a little easier than those attempted by Beth.
Language confidently and successfully used in the creative piece with few errors. Connectors are used throughout, but no idiom/cultural language or imperative.
It could be argued that these pieces are well over the required 400 words and therefore do not show, as do excellence exemplars in the NCEA assessment samples, successful selection of a wide range of language in far less words.
Karl Furnival Low Achieved
Creative writing piece; Guerra Civil – errors significant including lexical, syntactical and grammatical, and generally not successful use of L7/8 language structures apart from passive voice. Recipe has irritating mix of infinitive and imperative, but imperative use is correct and shows some subjunctive with “hasta que”.
Katie Fairgray Low Excellence or High merit
Nicely done recount of fairytale and movie, with controlled and integrated use of past tenses throughout the first pieces, with a range of correct language which includes past tenses and relative pronouns . However, apart from one phrase, there is little use of conditional and future tenses, passive voice, indirect speech, imperative, to show integrated and controlled use of these. None of the pieces use idiom, and connectors are infrequent, apart from “de repente”.
The final piece, on travel is definitely not of the same standard low merit instead.
Kirsty Ainsworth Low Achieved?
Needs relative pronouns in all pieces, especially “que” ;syntactical problems: él era estornudó! and general problems with more complex sentence structures requiring relatives and with prepositional verbs such as olvidar. Punctuation!! Dependence on simple language and extensive use of past tenses, rather than L7/8 language. Lack of opinions expressed and justified. Final piece on Civil War not well structured with no use of connectors to link disjointed facts.
Rosie Davenport Higher Achieved
Long winded creative writing shows good control of past tenses, as do the other two pieces. There is one use of conditional tense “seria un sueño”, a use of relatives “lo que creen y lo que hacen, que es”.
Opinions are expressed and justified and some use of idiom (dar por sentado), but no other tenses so no real range of language. Best piece is the film review.
