My son is taking is mocks soon. Due to a positive test in his bubble he has had to self isolate. His teacher has reminded him to use the SITE approach. I don't want to bother the teacher, can anyone help me understand what this means?

Thank you. I hope you can help me.

I just asked my DD who is doing GCSE English, she's not been told either but guesses that it's something to do with Structure.

(though it's a bit worrying he's been asked to us something he can't remember!)

@RedskyAtnight thank you so much for responding. There seems to be so many anacronym these days. DS has just taught me:

Kingdom, Phylem, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species.
King, Prawn, Curry, On, Fat, Guys, Shirt.

Cleary, he was paying more attention in Biology than in English.

I assume you’re talking about the English literature exam, and @RedskyAtnight already gave you the answer. The biggest problem is the English language exam (since the 2015 reform), in which the most important word is ‘effect’;) I find this exam (at least the AQA one) utter rubbish. It’s ambiguous, subjective just like its mark scheme. It seems that even the people who wrote the so called answers, were not sure what they should write, and also the teachers seem to not know how to actually face it.
