Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

In this mini-series of classes, students will get an overview of how to write at (notional) Grade standards.  

In this class we are working towards writing at a (notional) Grade 7 standard at GCSE level for a specific opinion writing assignment.  We will be using the topic ‘Children should be working part-time before they are 16 years old!’

Other classes in this mini-series are English: Achieving Grade 5 in Opinion Writing and English: Achieving Grade 9 in Opinion Writing.
