1 PISA across the curriculum Module 7 1

2 Module aim To develop an understanding of how PISA sample questions and supported skills development are linked to national curriculum themes and GCSE syllabuses. 2

3 Identify links between PISA sample questions and their own subject area. Begin to generate a bank of GCSE question stimuli that can be used across a variety of subject areas to help learners: –apply knowledge and skills in unfamiliar situations –work creatively and collaboratively to develop thinking, literacy and numeracy skills. Module objectives 3

4 Task 1: Put yourself in their shoes!

5 Think of a learner that you teach in Year 10. Discuss and make some notes on the following questions: 5

6 Task sheet 1: Shoes A). How well do they perform in different subjects? C). What skills could they develop further in your subject? B). What skills do they use in other subjects? E). How effectively do they interact with teachers and peers in different subjects? D). How well do they engage with unfamiliar contexts? 4 minutes 6

7 Wider opportunities PISA seeks to answer questions like: can they analyse, reason and communicate effectively? how well do they transfer ideas and solve problems? do they have the capacity to continue learning throughout life? (Welsh Government, DfES, 2012, page 2) PISA as a learning context The goal should be to develop a curriculum with appropriate learning activities that: equip learners with transferable skills is relevant, challenging, interesting and enjoyable for all learners transforms learning to produce resourceful, resilient and reflective lifelong learners. (Welsh Government, DCELLS, 2008, page 3) Skills framework 7

8 Wider opportunities The LNF focuses on the learners’ acquisition of and ability to apply the skills and concepts they have learned to complete realistic tasks appropriate for their stage of development. National Literacy and Numeracy Framework 8 (Welsh Government, DfES, 2013, page 8)

9 Wider opportunities Teachers will be able to: develop curriculum content to ensure that all learners have opportunities to develop and refine... skills integrate literacy and numeracy into their teaching – whatever the subject matter. (Welsh Government, DfES, 2013, page 8) National Literacy and Numeracy Framework 9

10 Task 2: Creative contexts

11 Choose at least two of the PISA contexts from the resource sheets to discuss in your group. For each context chosen, complete a group response sheet. Be ready to feed back your thoughts to other groups. Creative contexts 12 minutes 11 OECD, 2009

12 Ideas, opportunities, benefits, challenges? Creative contexts feedback Runners  Reading Heartbeat  Maths Literacy Moreland  Reading In poor taste  Reading Starlight  Science Literacy Mary Montagu  Science Literacy Reaction time  Maths Literacy Plan international  Reading PISA areas ANSWERS 12 OECD, 2009

13 Many of the [PISA] questions require learners to apply their problem-solving skills to new contexts. Learners therefore need to have well-developed skills, especially literacy, numeracy and problem solving, and the confidence to take on the challenge of questions that are outside their ‘comfort zone.’ (Welsh Government, DfES, 2012, page 3) ‘Comfort zone’ or ‘risk’ 13

15 Task 3: GCSE generation

16 Choose two of the GCSE contexts presented and try to generate your own set of PISA-style questions. 16 WJEC CBAC Ltd., minutes

17 The subjects Unemployment in Wales  History Group 7  Chemistry Hairdryer  Product design Sales  Food technology School disco  ICT 3-D Logo  Art and design Smoking cigarettes  English Human Rights  Religious studies Music Box  Applied business Gas bill  Maths Collate a cross-curricular resource bank? Could learners help develop this? 17 WJEC CBAC Ltd., 2013

18 Time for action? Read each statement and tick a box to indicate your level of agreement. Also note any actions that you or your department could take in relation to these or other ideas raised in the session. 18
