Map showing data from census
It is slightly misleading when they say'14 boroughs have second languages from within the EU', because I suspect most of the Spanish and Portuguese speakers south of the river are from South America.
The article also expressed surprise about Nepalese in Greenwich but perhaps this is connected with the ghurkas and the Woolwich barracks

General Discussion / Improving Student Skills at A level - help?
« Last post by bigbird on August 15, 2014, 05:12:30 PM »
Having looked at our AS results this year - first year the course is running again - we are really pleased on how the students did on the knowledge based questions (even the essay marks were pretty good), but their grades have all been brought down by the skills - based questions. We do AQA and this is the case on both the Unit 2 skills paper and the skills questions in Unit 1. Apart from more practice does anyone have any ideas on how to improve student skills in responding to sources like maps, graphs, etc? Or a course that helped? We plan to do the Unit 4 skills paper so we really need to help them improve this. Any ideas much appreciated. Thanks.
