From August 2016 comprehensive course materials will be available on SCHOLAR for NAT5, Higher and Advanced Higher English.

SCHOLAR has been supporting Scottish teachers and learners for fifteen years. The start of the new session will bring English into line with thirty courses across Maths, Science Subjects, Computing, Business Studies, Art & Design, Modern Languages and Gaelic. SCHOLAR materials are produced and monitored by Scottish teachers with extensive experience of the SQA courses in question. Two independent surveys over the lifetime of SCHOLAR have identified a clear correlation between frequency of SCHOLAR usage and pupil performance in SQA exams. Recent extensive online surveys of both pupils and teachers indicate a high level of user satisfaction with SCHOLAR.

Next session English teachers and pupils will have online access to the full suite of SCHOLAR materials for NAT 5, Higher and AH English. This includes comprehensive course notes, learning activities, targeted assessments, online tutorials, study guide books and more. Teachers and pupils will be able to access the SCHOLAR site at any time of day. In addition to pupils using SCHOLAR for home study, revision, catch up, monitoring of personal progress etc. teachers can use SCHOLAR in class as a teaching aid and as a top quality resource for directed, personalised pupil activity.

To find out about training opportunities for students and / or staff and to get specifi support with the new English materials please talk to your Scholar Co-ordinator or email me at james.mclean@aberdeenshire.gov.uk
