Writing About Issues - Water

Writing About Issues - Water

Students investigate the issue of a sustainable fresh water supply. They examine some of the issues and compare different views about managing water resources. Students then write an essay about a water issue of their choice. They use comprehension strategies to interpret, analyse and synthesise ideas and information, critiquing ideas and issues from a variety of textual sources. Students analyse and evaluate the ways that text structures and language features vary according to the purpose of the text and the ways that referenced sources add authority to a text. Students will be able to research an issue using a variety of reliable sources. Students can analyse a range of resource management issues around water and can articulate the complexities of a single water issue, giving at least two opposing perspectives.

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.

The World News Crossword - February 18th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 18th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 18th, 2018 is a crossword based on the events of last week’s news. It’s a simple PDF sop it downloads quickly, is easy to print, and can be stored on a USB drive for use later. (There are 3 bonus crosswords - Egypt, China, and Japan, in the PDF and all of the answers are included too.) Of course, this activity is less about the events around the world and more about why and the discussions and debates that come from asking why. Why have so many orangutans died in the past 10 years? Why would people in Japan pay to go on a virtual-reality trip to Paris? Why are suicide bombers in Nigeria killing people in a fish market? And what’s so important about discovering new antibiotics? What did happen in the world in the last week? Australia’s PM and Deputy PM had a spat. Poland’s PM got a telling off. South Africa’s president resigned. And The Netherlands’ foreign minister resigned too. And so did Ethiopia’s PM. A plane crashed in Iran and a helicopter crashed in Mexico. There was an earthquake in Mexico and one in England and wales too. An Iranian wrestler threw a match so that he’d not have to wrestle against an Israeli. In India a woman pretended to be a man and duped two women into paying to marry him. And an Indian tycoon is on the run having duped a bank out of about $1.8 BILLION!! US scientists discovered a whole new family of antibiotics while Canadian scientists discovered a Picasso painting was a painting on top of another painting.

The World News Crossword - February 11th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 11th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 11th, 2018 is a simple pdf document so it's easy to download and easy to print (or save to a USB for later). The World News Crossword is a crossword based on the events in last week's news. (And there are two more BONUS puzzles.) Norway's Winter Olympic team's chefs ordered 13,500 too many eggs. (They could've made a HUGE pavlova cake.) Justin Trudeau got in trouble for suggesting peoplekind instead of mankind. Germany's police investigated a teenager being burnt at a witches' festival. Formula 1 announced it will replace its grid girls, with grid kids, (but is that better or worse?) Paris' Eiffel Tower was closed because of snow. China's police started using sunglasses with cameras and face recognition software, to find criminals. An Indian woman accused her husband and brother in law of stealing her kidney. It wasn't all silly though... last week police in Scotland were called to a farm where a tiger was reportedly on the loose. That was serious. Oh but it was a big fluffy toy tiger on the loose.

Reading Comprehension - Korea

Reading Comprehension - Korea

I put this resource together as part of a package that I have created for the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. If you like this, and want more like it (with answers), then please take a look in my store. A BIT ABOUT ME Before teaching, I was a journalist. I still work as a freelance writer, and like nothing more than writing engaging texts to challenge and inspire children and young people. I choose subjects that may not be on the curriculum but are still of great importance for students to know about. Everything I write has been comprehensively researched from a number of sources and been written by myself. No plagiarism here! This is all original material. My questions are pitched at a high level, but with a bit of patience and persistence (and some adult help if necessary) most students will have great fun as they learn, especially as the penny drops I am aware of the impact of printed resources on our environment so try to condense my reading activities into as compact a space as possible. Hopefully this will help you save time in printing, and keep the bills down! Check out my store if you enjoy this – you’re sure to find more. Thanks!
