Cooking Up a Treat in the Exam Classroom
Have you ever considered the similarities between a classroom and a kitchen?
Both are places where great things can be created, where a variety of exciting ingredients are to be found and where the end product can be a satisfying and nourishing experience for all kinds of tastes. This session will look at how the ingredients of an exam preparation classroom can be successfully combined to create a rewarding, successful – and importantly enjoyable learning environment for all. Among the ingredients on the menu will be material taken from Pearson’s brand new Focus exam preparation course.
