    I use a chrome plugin called Draftback which allows me to see literally every letter typed as if it were being done in front of me in real time. It plays as a video which can be sped up so that I can see their process. The students know that I watch these so that if there are any sudden copy and pasting of larger chunks, it’s incredibly obvious. The ultimate acid test for me is that the student should be able to translate the entire piece in person if I put it in front of them. If they are unable to translate it then they don’t know the content and it isn’t their work.

    It is a crafted piece of writing so there is that aspect but knowing my students and their abilities as well as keeping a close eye on them during the process is the ultimate control and, eliminates issues before they arise

    Bonjour
    Our Assistante, Anne Rajoie, has kindly recorded Julia’s listening exam. These files are now on the site for download. Each passage is separate with repeats and 30s pauses.
    Merci Anne!

    Bonjour Morgan
    Thanks for advertising this – the flyer didn’t attach so could you please click “edit” in the top right hand corner of your post and re-attach it? I’ll put the dates in the calendar for teachers too.

    Bonjour Sandrine
    Thanks for sharing these ideas for us. Open Days regularly come up as a headache for teachers – how do we promote our language! I’ll transfer your ideas onto our “For Teachers” page but, of course, they will remain “searchable” in this forum in the future.
    Merci bien!

    Hi Suzanna

    Sometimes the files don’t attach. Go back to your post and click “edit” – top right. This allows you to edit the post. Now do the “choose file” process again and they will definitely attach.

    Bonjour!
    Allie Hemmings shared a comprehensive document with us a few weeks ago. I quote: “Your “one stop shop” for students, including all standard information, assessment schedule, performance descriptors, strategies and exemplars.”
    This document is on our Scholarship page under “Assessment”.

    For a complete Studio 1 vocabulary list go to the page https://www.nzaft.co.nz/NZC-level-1-2/ where I have uploaded the list I made during last year. Many schools seem to be moving to Studio with its digital features so please keep sharing.
