PAPER    1, question 2- 5 (AQA GCSE English Language 8700 )

PAPER 1, question 2- 5 (AQA GCSE English Language 8700 )

What is in this bundle? This bundle contains 20 full lessons on powerpoint with supporting worksheets, activities and videos for questions 2 - 5 of the AQA paper 1 exam. It also contains bite sized assessments for some of the tougher questions and independent study material. It contains a wide selection of texts and references from extracts from Divergent, Atonement, Dracula, Orwells 1984, Graham Greenes The Destructors and Stephens Kings The Body (Stand By Me). The total amount of the individual resources combined as a bundle is £53.00 but I’m willing to sell at £20, saving you 62% What type of lessons are they? My style is very much about class participation, student ownership of learning and quick pace. Lessons come with starters, plenaries, paired, group and independent activities which last from 5 /10 / 15 / 20 and 30 mins at a time. I teach 3 hour sessions therefore all lesson have enough material to fill 3 hours. I also like to base parts of my sessions around pop culture and current issues in order to engage students and demonstrate that English is not a subject or skill confined to the classroom but rather it is a life long skill with real relevance in the world. I also like English to have an element of fun and try to encourage students to have fun with language and encourage creativity. Many lessons cover a range of levels as I teach mixed level classes, I use supportive techniques such as sentence starters, word banks and peer assessment and self assessment.

WJEC GCSE ENGLISH: CREATIVE  WRITING independent study booklet

WJEC GCSE ENGLISH: CREATIVE WRITING independent study booklet

This is an 8 page booklet designed to be used as independent study to help students prepare for their creative writing task in the GCSE English Language exam. This has been designed with the WJEC EDUQAS exam board in mind but will equally work with those who are studying for other exam boards. This booklet is designed to cater for different levels. We all know we have students who need explicit structure and instructions, therefore often find it difficult to create from imagination, even with prompts. Whereas we all have students who will fly on an imaginative roller coaster with the vaguest of hints. This booklet caters for both type of student. It starts with visual prompts to help coax ideas out of the least creative of students and then walks them through a planning process where they develop language features, vocabulary and short story lines. We also have writing prompts which will allow the student to use real life experiences to help inspire a story, much like the WJEC exam board will give. To turn the level up a notch we have a wide range of writing prompts using song titles. All through out the pack there are hints and tips to help students keep on track as to the skills they need to display in their writing to ensure the most marks from the examiner. This can be used in any way you feel will work best with your students. Please keep in mind that TES preview can distort the resource, this is not a reflection of how to looks. Hope it helps.

BULLYING: KB'S FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL

BULLYING: KB'S FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL

Students will identify the different types of bullying while analyzing the implicit. The video is provided with subtitles on Youtube. Once students have completed the worksheet, the teacher may lead them into a debate: should KB have told her mother about what actually happened to her at school? If they had been Melanie, what would they have done (which could be an opportunity to introduce/brush up conditional 3)?

Family in English Game of Seven Families

The object of the game is to collect a full family - 6 cards. The player with the most families at the end is the winner. Player 1 asks a player of his/her choice for a card belonging to a specific family. In order to make the request, the player must already have at least 1 card belonging to that family. “In the (Martin) family, I am looking for (specific card).” If that player has the card, he/she hands it over. Player 1 continues asking for cards until he/she does not get what is requested. Player 2 then takes his/her turn. Once a family is collected, it is laid on the table in front of that player.
