World War One Reading: HOW THE WAR WAS WON. Comprehension Package.

World War One Reading: HOW THE WAR WAS WON. Comprehension Package.

2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War One. This collection of four reading comprehensions, aimed at 10-14 year olds, tests children’s comprehension, retrieval, inference and deduction skills through a range of informative and enlightening texts. It will also promote reflective and engaging classroom discussion as children discover more about this important chapter in the world’s history. For this reason, it is ideal for research projects. Each activity has questions and answers, with an indication of how many marks are on offer at the end of each question. This is particularly helpful for children preparing for reading tests and exams, encouraging them to give fuller answers where required. ____________________________ CONTENTS The Soldier who helped to end the war: The heroic story of a British officer who went behind enemy lines to secure the masterplan for the fearsome Hindenburg defences – a mission that many believe helped to end the war more quickly. America declares war: How America moved from neutrality to war; and how their actions were crucial in securing an Allied victory. The Armistice: The world celebrates as the peace treaty is signed in a railway carriage – but the war rumbles on right until the bitter end. We Will Remember Them: A look at the Flanders Fields poem, followed by information about Remembrance and Veteran’s Day; and the significance of the poppy.

Academic essay writing

Academic essay writing

This is one of my favourite and successful lessons. I took the idea from an IELTS class and amended it for all of my students who need to write an academic essay. This could easily be used over a double lesson depending on how you want to approach it. You can get the students to write the whole essay, or better yet get them to write it a paragragh at a time,then show your corresponding paragraph. This lesson is a step by step approach to essay writing. First identify what type of essay the student is to write and then focus on the structure and coherence of the work: talk about transitions, grammar, spelling, cohesion etc. Then the 5 paragraphs of the essay are identified. Deliberate "mistakes" are included (e.g. introduction paragraph is weak) so students can hopefully identify mistakes in the essay. Finally an essay can be set as homework following on from what you have taught over 2 lessons.
