Three Little Pigs - Media/English/Fairy Tales/Adaptations/Newspapers

Using The Three Little Pigs as inspiration for this Media bundle, you'll find all you need to cover key terms such as adaptations and stereotypes. Please allow 3-5 hours to cover all material attached. Included: x3 PPTS Embedded videos (links in notes); sample sentence starts, differentiated activities - must,could, should approach. Students will consider the changing nature of how we view and interact with news stories today. Lessons will encourage speaking and listening. Students will also work on their writing skills, with a particular focus on their functional writing skills. I usually follow these lessons up with a segment on Fake News and I'm currently working on developing a bundle for that topic.

Three Little Pigs - L3 - Stereotypes and Letter to the Editor

Three Little Pigs - L3 - Stereotypes and Letter to the Editor

Building on the previous two lessons, lesson three aims to have students define and identify stereotypes. With this keyword in mind, students compose a scaffolded letter to an editor of a newspaper. I usually buy some newspapers the week of these lessons. Photocopying an article and a letter responding to these is a worthwhile activity in the lead up to this lesson. Students usually read the article/letter to the editor in groups. If these lessons have worked for you in the classroom, then please leave a review in the comments section below. It's always great to hear how a group progresses with these activities!

Autobiography 'Slave' - History of Sudan

Autobiography 'Slave' - History of Sudan

6 resources utilised in a 12 English Authority unit in Queensland Australia. 1) A PowerPoint taking students through the history of Sudan. It begins by introducing students to key terms including: coup, constitution, fundamentalist, Islam, junta and secession. These terms are integral to understanding the events in Slave as the author's life was influenced by the political events occurring in society at the time. After a brief overview of the early history, it delves into the civil war (1980s-1990s). Lastly it looks at contemporary politics (since 2002). 2) A handout of the notes about the history of Sudan (which were taken from the Oxford dictionary of contemporary world history). This can be given to students who struggle to summarise or used for purposes of revision. 3) Further research about Slave and the Nuba culture. 4) A handout to be given to students at the beginning of the term explaining the purpose of the unit and outlining what the two items of assessment are. 5) A diagram which shows the various influences on the author as she wrote her autobiography.

Autobiography 'Slave' - Context. The customs of the Nuba people.

Autobiography 'Slave' - Context. The customs of the Nuba people.

Anyone who thinks that slavery went the way of the nineteenth century will be disabused of that belief when reading “Slave: My True Story”  written by Mende Nazer, a Sudanese Nuba, along with Damien Lewis, a British journalist. This book gives a chilling overview of the modern slave trade from the perspective of one who was victimized by it. Human trafficking, unfortunately, is alive and well as a weapon of war in the late twentieth and twenty-first century. This resource is a PowerPoint presentation designed for use in a 12 English Authority class in Queensland Australia. It introduces students to the concepts of cultural context and social situations and how both can influence the author. This lesson prepares students to answer the following question: What is the social impact of the text? i.e. is it recycling or reinforcing cultural assumptions? Within this lesson students will learn about the Nuba people – cultural practices e.g. scarification, beads, wrestling, religious beliefs, dwellings, diet, languages & female genital mutilation. In addition to information, images and videos of some of these are provided. It also includes some information about save trading in Sudan. At the end of the PowerPoint are some sample answers to the chapter questions for chapters 1-8.
