An Inspector Calls revision notes

An Inspector Calls revision notes

This is a revision resource of An Inspector Calls packed with notes on characters, themes and main motifs, with each quotes heavily analysed, as well as being linked to the context. I collected notes from videos, revision guides and other places and put them all together, as well as including my own ideas. This is very useful for GCSE students as I had made this for my own exams (the new 9-1 GCSE’s). With these notes I was able to receive grade 9’s on my exams.

Lesson and materials designed for introducing students to different critical ways of reading a text. Introduces students to a range of critical lenses, and separates them into small groups.

Instructions Watch the video of Cinderella attached. Having watched the video, read the version of Cinderella attached, by the Brothers Grimm. Having done so, choose one of the literary lens documents to work on with a partner. Apply what you can in terms of knowledge and understanding to the short story. Share your findings with the class. What did using your literary lens reveal about Cinderella as a text? Is there a lens that is most appropriate for analysing the story? If so, what? Why?

EDEXCEL GCSE English language - paper 1 question 4

EDEXCEL GCSE English language - paper 1 question 4

This session explores structural features for paper 1 , question 4 of the EDEXCEL GCSE English exam by looking at an extract of Margret Atwoods The Handmaids Tale. This lesson is quick paced, engaging and exciting which explores human rights and human rights violations. This lesson helps to expose students to events that have and are taking place around the globe and to encourage awareness and tolerance, therefore embedding equality and diversity but also British Values. This is a great lesson to invite youth workers to attend and help support activities and group discussions as they can bring another dimension to this topic, therefore encouraging cross school or college participation in English and encouraging a holistic approach to education. Students work in groups and pairs to break down and examine the extract, they explore ideas of culture and individuality whilst also looking at the ways the Margret Atwood uses structural features to communicate atmosphere and repression to her audience. The lesson ends with a practice question, peer marking and a small self assessment plenary. The lesson comes with the full extract, powerpoint of the entire lesson, worksheets and two videos, one exploring human rights and the other is the trailer for The Handmaids Tale. I used to teach in a college where lessons came in 3 hour blocks therefore there is enough material for 3 hours in this resource, but it can be altered into smaller sessions depending on your timetable. Please note that TES previews an at times distort the look of the resource but this is not a true reflection. Hope it helps.

This engaging and informative lesson enables students to make clear, detailed and well-informed interpretations of Tommy’s characterisation in ‘Never Let Me Go.’ In particular, students develop their understanding of how his character is introduced and developed, drawing on a varied range of textual evidence from across the novel, before demonstrating their understanding of how the character reflects Ishiguro’s intentions.

Included is: Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; Quote Interpretation worksheet; Selected extract (from chapter 1); Diary writing succcess criteria; Comprehensive lesson plan. There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion.

Classical characters in Translations (Brian Friel)

This worksheet/activity is designed for MA-HA A Level/IB English A students. It provides the references made in the play to characters from classical literature/mythology, in the order in which they are mentioned in the play, so is a great resource for revision.

Students are then encouraged to explain the significance of this being included (this column in the chart could be an extension task for those of higher ability, or all students could be asked to do it). Prompts are included to help students with the explanation/aid differentation.
