Fact And Fiction Reading Questions For Any Book

Fact And Fiction Reading Questions For Any Book

A selection of fiction and non-fiction reading questions that will fit any text or book. The answers can be written by the pupils or the questions can be asked verbally by any other person. This could be teaching, support staff or other pupils in lessons or parents/carers at home. These questions mean that any book can be used as a teaching resource or an assessment tool and that you no longer have to find or prepare activities to fit such a wide variety of texts. Since you can select any text you wish, you can choose books that fit both the pupils reading level and their interests. Each question has four stages of difficulty so this can also be used as an assessment tool.

OCR English Lit: American Literature 1880-1940: American History Timeline

OCR English Lit: American Literature 1880-1940: American History Timeline

Context is a major component of OCR A Level English Literature, particularly in Paper 2: Comparative and Contextual study. Having done my A Levels this year (2018), I found this resource very useful to make and revise from for my exams considering that Part A of the paper involved 12.5% AO3 Context and Part B involves a massive 50% AO3. In order to really know your texts well, be it American literature, Dystopia or Women, you have to understand the context. This will also help you understand the writer’s purpose and make intellectual interpretations about unseen passages in the OCR paper. Good luck to current A Level students. I hope you find this resource useful. Comment down any queries you may have!!

How Do I Improve My Grades In GCSE English writing? PART 1 (14-16 years)

How Do I Improve My Grades In GCSE English writing? PART 1 (14-16 years)

59 pages A clear, concise revision guide to boost your grade, written by a tutor who is familiar with the requirements of the new GCSE examination. It is so simple you can use it for last minute revision. The skills and requirements for the GCSE English language exam are very specific: retrieving information from texts, inference, analysis of language, presentational techniques and comparing texts are some of the skills needed. For writing, students are required to engage the reader and produce a response, which relates to the purpose and audience. This book teaches students how to write using different purposes to inform, explain, argue, advise, describe, persuade, review and how to make the tone and register of their writing suitable for the audience. It emphasises the P.E.E or P.E.T.E.R technique, so students have a blue print (format) to work from; make POINT, give EVIDENCE, comment on TECHNIQUE, EFFECT and RESPONSE. This helps students to develop analytical skills for non-fiction tasks and responses in English literature papers. The students are also taught to use rhetorical techniques groups of three, speaking directly to the reader, rhetorical questions, inclusive pronouns as well as stylistic devices like similes, metaphors and high level vocabulary. The aim of this book is: To help every child gain a grade C in GCSE English. To outline the requirements of the present GCSE course and to teach students to structure and organise a piece of writing. To teach students to look for key words in a task and to plan a suitable response. To teach students to use linguistic and stylistic devices. To show them how to use rhetorical techniques. To teach P.E.E techniques and to teach the analytical skills required for English language and literature tasks. To teach good spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Books We've Read: Reading Display

Books We've Read: Reading Display

Needing some inspiration for my reading corner, I created this display in order to show case the children’s reading books. The idea behind it is that the book templates will be printed out for children to fill in whenever they complete a book. They can draw the front cover and fill in the blurb on the back and the teacher can laminate the books and hang them from a string underneath the heading. It’s a super cute idea to show off all the books that you’re class have read and let’s face it, it looks really colorful in your reading area. Included: *The display name: “Books we’ve Read” *Book templates to print out. (See cover photo for a clearer idea).
