Junior Cycle English was the first subject to change within the new Junior Cycle. As each subject is completed by one full cohort of students, an interim review of the subject specification and related assessments will be carried out by the NCCA.
It was confirmed at last Junior Cycle Implementation Committee meeting that all teachers of English can participate in the review of Junior Cycle English by completing a survey available on juniorcycle.ie.
The consultation to gather feedback from English teachers and students is now open and will close on 26th January. A template for written feedback is available – link as follows:
Please complete and email written submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th January 2018.
TUI would encourage every teacher of English to complete and return the survey questionnaire. It is important that the review be fully informed by the experience and understanding of practicing teachers.
