The Sign of Four - Doyle's Use of Language

The Sign of Four - Doyle's Use of Language

In this engaging and informative lesson, students make clear and insightful interpretations of Arthur Conan Doyle’s use of language throughout 'The Sign of Four.' In particular, students analyse how Doyle uses metaphor, alliteration and pathetic fallacy to describe the journey Holmes and Watson take across the dreary streets of London in Chapter 3. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which students learn through: - Define and exemplify a range of language devices, including pathetic fallacy; - Reading and understanding chapters 3 and 4, in which Holmes, Watson, and Miss Marston travel across London to meet Mr Thaddeus Sholto; - Identifying and analysing the language techniques used by Doyle in describing the London streets; - Analysing Doyle's intentions in using each of the language features, and considering the effect that these have upon the reader; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole Lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Paper Copies of Chapters 3 and 4; - Cards for the Card-Sorting Activity; - Language Techniques Worksheet (and Teacher Answer Sheet); - Essay Template; - Detailed Lesson Plan There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with both younger and older (up to A Level) students.

Thankful Gratitude Leaves Crafts

Thankful Leaves! Showing gratitude has been proven to increase long-term well-being, improve health, relationships, emotions and help us bounce back from stressful experiences. In this pack you will receive a range of "unbe-leaf-able" (heh heh) different leaf patterns in 2 different sizes: whole page and half page. You will also receive 2 versions: one with unique prompts and another that is blank giving you full flexibility! Students can colour the leaves, cut them out, reflect on their gratitude and then display these in your classroom in so many different ways! These are ideal for PSHE or Tutor Time and they work well for silent or discussion activities to start or end the school day, plus it's also great for teachers too: we can all take time to have an attitude of gratitude and these would look wonderful up in the staff room!
