Teachers – reduce your marking and develop your student’s knowledge and motivation with W2L games. There are several activities with the title ‘Business Documents’. The best way to play these is for students to register for a free W2L account, log in and enter share code ‘832263’ to unlock the Functional Skills ICT topic. By logging in to play the activities scores will be recorded and attainment rewarded.
Suggested method of delivery:
Ask students what information they would need to know before a meeting – this should lead to them developing their understanding of the required content for agendas. Students should also be shown how to access standard templates within Microsoft Word.
Full instructions for this task are on the worksheet downloadable above.
As plenaries (and home learning) for all lessons, students should be encouraged to complete the interactive assessment tasks detailed above.
