Stage 3: The student writes a written RESPONSE to the teacher’s comments about the ACTIONS required to reach the next stage. It’s very useful for showing progress, communicating attainment on HW or timed (in class) essays that form part of exam preparation revision.

KS3, KS4, poetry, Romantics, dramatic monologue, Browning "The Laboratory", writer's methods, effect

KS3, KS4, poetry, Romantics, dramatic monologue, Browning "The Laboratory", writer's methods, effect

This is a lesson planned for an able year 9 class as part of a unit on poetry and developing the skills that they’ll need for GCSE. It uses Browning’s “The Laboratory” and there is a focus, through questioning, on the methods that the writer uses to suggest the character of the speaker in the poem. At the end of the lesson, the pupils are asked to focus independently on two further methods (alliteration and contrast) and explain their effect in the context of developing the character of the speaker. There is a brief mention of the fact that Browning was influenced by the Romantic poets and the homework after the study of the poem is for the pupils to write an extended paragraph (perhaps bolstered by independent research) about the attitude of the Romantics to the French Revolution.

Act 4 Scene 2 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Act 4 Scene 2 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Everything you need to teach Act 4 Scene2 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This is also available as part of a bundle whereby a considerable saving can be made; following the full scheme is recommended. The lessons have been created specifically for teaching at GCSE level, and cover the key assessment objectives for 9-1 New-Specification AQA: understanding of the text, language and structure, context/themes/author intent (although equally applicable to other exam boards). Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students. Throughout the scheme, students are encouraged to make notes and annotate the text, as this will be a valuable revision tool when preparing for exams. No fear version is also included as a further scaffolding tool for lower ability learners. Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text. Strictly speaking, there is a lot more here than you would fit into a 1 hour lesson, so you may wish to spread this over a couple of lessons, or perhaps be a little selective with the tasks you wish to do. PDF version is for preview purposes. Buy in confidence from a TES recommended gold author! If you make a purchase and find the resource useful, why not get another one absolutely free? Simply leave a review for the resource purchased, email with your TES username alongside a link to the resource you would like. Your free resource will then be sent over right away!
