Materials of previous Baccalaureate exams in Morocco are rearranged in this complication on the basis of the major language areas and components they represent.
The aim is to provide teachers with sufficient material for practice exercises on the type of language items and structures that 2nd Baccalaureate students are likely to encounter.
This material is available in hard copies of the Baccalaureate exams in Morocco, but these do not lend themselves to extensive use through all the phases of learning language items and structures.
This compilation supplies examples of exercises that can be used in the controlled practice phase, in reviews for quizzes/tests, and in consolidation and remedial sessions that follow the correction of quizzes/tests.
It also provides voluminous and flexible material to be used in the final preparation for the Baccalaureate exams in Morocco. The malleability of the material in this document, which was granted by Word processing, allows various selections and rearrangements of the items.
One can use the items in the arrangement proposed to offer students repeated and voluminous practice of the target item or structure, or can make a varied selection of items to train students on answering exam-like questions.
Some sections, however, like the ones on vocabulary and word formation, do not allow such a variety of uses as they are in principle designed to assess students’ understanding of a variety of lexical items.
Here are a few ideas on how to use this material in order to ensure wider exploitation and achieve optimum efficiency:
Raising Students’ Awareness about Question Types
- Teachers need to browse through the sections so as to have an idea about what question types are used to assess different language items and structures.
- They need to communicate this to their students while they are working on the exercises so as to feed their expectations and enhance their performance.
- students need to know that some structures are tested in two or three different ways. Linking words, for example, are tested by means of gap- filling, sentence combination and sentence completion.
- Students need to know that some structures are tested in direct and indirect ways.
