Feedback form is now closed.
The new DP Language and Literature/Literature guides offer us, and in consequence the students, way more freedom in choice of texts and content. Sounds great, doesn't it? But how practical is it really to let the students choose the texts for their oral exams themselves? How can we use the portfolio to support our teaching and the students’ learning?
