Explorations in Creative Writing Tasks

Explorations in Creative Writing Tasks

Two descriptive writing tasks that helps GCSE English AQA Language students practice for Question 5 on Paper 1. The two tasks are image based, but include six extra objects to include in their writing to encourage planning. Each object needs to be used in a new paragraph and so reinds students of the need to paragraph. These tasks also work well for English/Literacy cover lessons for both KS3 and KS4.

GCSE Physics Structure Strips - Kinetic Theory and Density

GCSE Physics Structure Strips - Kinetic Theory and Density

As a teacher, one thing that I have always found is that students find extended answer questions either really easy or extremely difficult - there never seems to be a middle ground! To help, I have put some structure strips together for the GCSE physics course to support the students that really struggle with providing an extended answer. So far the feedback is that students love them as they really have helped these students become more independent in their study. There are 3 parts to this product: 1) The structure strips for 3 separate GCSE questions (one on density, one on changes of state and one on kinetic theory). These can be printed, cut and glued into students books (I have used pastel colours because of printing in black and white, but feel free to change this to liven it up!). 2) 2 copies of each of the questions with lines for students to write their answers on. Print these 2 to a page, and they can be glued next to the structure strips in an A4 book. 3) A WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) with annotations to show students how they could further improve their answers if required. This can be used over a projector to show students, zooming in and moving around with a projector remote as a peer/self-assess exercise when marking answers. I have started putting this resource together for Atomic Structure and Radioactivity, and more will be in the pipework if people like them! Enjoy!
