End of Term Year  Quiz June 2018

End of Term Year Quiz June 2018

I hope your class have had a great year. You’ve worked so hard and you deserve to use this for…all your classes at least once? So I’ve made it broad enough to apply to ages 11 - 19 with no amendment. 5 rounds of questions: 1. Film and TV 2. Children’s Literature 3. News headlines 4. The Royal Wedding 5. Music Intros. The films and TV programmes , news headlines and royal wedding are from 2018 while the children’s books referred to are mostly classics with a few recent best sellers, The music intros are linked to YouTube. All songs selected are from this year and suitable for all ages while still (hopefully!) being cool. I’m sure the kids will give you their opinions! The newspaper headlines round asks students to write their own true headlines to go with the pictures provided. This can also vary in assessment depending on the ability of your class. It’s difficult to give definitive answers to some of these (no PowerPoint should have to burden all of Donald Trump’s newsworthy stories), so links have been provided to Google searches for news on the person in question. Enjoy and have a wonderful summer! : )

Act 4 Scene 3 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Act 4 Scene 3 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Everything you need to teach Act 4 Scene 3 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This is also available as part of a bundle whereby a considerable saving can be made; following the full scheme is recommended. The lessons have been created specifically for teaching at GCSE level, and cover the key assessment objectives for 9-1 New-Specification AQA: understanding of the text, language and structure, context/themes/author intent (although equally applicable to other exam boards). Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students. Throughout the scheme, students are encouraged to make notes and annotate the text, as this will be a valuable revision tool when preparing for exams. No fear version is also included as a further scaffolding tool for lower ability learners. Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text. Strictly speaking, there is a lot more here than you would fit into a 1 hour lesson, so you may wish to spread this over a couple of lessons, or perhaps be a little selective with the tasks you wish to do. PDF version is for preview purposes. Buy in confidence from a TES recommended gold author! If you make a purchase and find the resource useful, why not get another one absolutely free? Simply leave a review for the resource purchased, email with your TES username alongside a link to the resource you would like. Your free resource will then be sent over right away!

Fame and Candle In The Wind

Fame and Candle In The Wind

The ballad Candle In The Wind by Elton John and Bernie Taupin is about the effects of fame and Marilyn Monroe. But the writers said that it could be about anyone who has had their life cut short through fame. The same song was then re-written and played during the funeral of Princess Diana. This lesson uses drama to explore these same themes of how society glorifies fame and immortalises the famous. This is a perfect resource for Key Stage 3, to help students at this level understand and appreciate the themes of this complex ballad in a creative and accessible way.
