KNQ Graphic Organizer: Know, New, Question

KNQ Graphic Organizer: Know, New, Question

As an alternative to the KWL Chart (What do you KNOW, What do you WANT to know, What have you LEARNED), the KNQ Graphic Organizer (What do you KNOW about the subject, What is NEW about the SUBJECT, What QUESTIONS do you have) requires students to organize their information in a different way. Some student don’t know what they WANT to know, so having them ask QUESTIONS at the end of the lesson can help them reflect of what they’ve learned and what may have been left out. Instead of what a student has LEARNED about the subject, they can examine what is NEW information they have acquired through the lesson. Finally, establishing what students KNOW is always good pedagogical practice as a diagnostic assessment. The KNQ practice can be used to assess student reading comprehension, lesson engagement and understanding or thematic content in a unit. As a lesson assessment, this tool can help gage next steps and gaps in learning.

Republic of Ireland context/history quiz

Republic of Ireland context/history quiz

This quiz was designed to be used in an English lesson to reinforce student knowledge of Irish history in relation to Brian Friel’s play “Translations”. However, it could of course also be used by history teachers! The quiz could be done traditionally, whereby students revise in advance and then sit the quiz on their own. However, I used it as a team game, whereby at around Easter time, the slips were cut up and hidden around the classroom treasure hunt-style. Students had to work in teams to find the slips and fill in the answers where they thought they went on the answer sheet. The first team to get a full sheet of correct answers - or the highest number of correct answers - by the end of the given time - won an Easter egg (I appreciate that edible prizes and/or the religious aspect won’t work in all schools so obviously feel free to substitute this with a reward of your choosing if needed). Ground rules worth setting include: no hoarding of slips in your team (they should be put back where you have found them so other teams can also find them…) and no using chairs/tables etc as weaponry to guard the slips you have found (yes, really!!).

Fact sheet: IRA (Irish Republican Army)

Fact sheet: IRA (Irish Republican Army)

This is a fact sheet about the IRA designed to be distributed to students, or for teachers to use to give them some background knowledge. It has been adapted/created based on Wikipedia so naturally is basic/has limitations, but is suitable for student use and for teachers who are not history specialists. It can be useful for English teachers who are teaching plays or novels where this history is relevant, such as Brian Friel’s “Translations” or Joan Lingard’s “Across The Barricades”.

Annotation Slides

Annotation Slides

Annotation is a supremely useful skill and reading strategy to use in order to better understand and discuss what you have read. Students require repetition of academic behaviors that will aid in their improved classroom performance. Annotation is a skill that can be used across subjects and should be modified for personal use as students become more comfortable. Common symbolsare identified.

Character impressions: Translations (Brian Friel)

Character impressions: Translations (Brian Friel)

This worksheet/activity is great for revision, and can be filled out as students encounter characters upon first reading/throughout their initial reading of the play, or completed retrospectively. It has been filled in with the names of characters from Brian Friel’s play “Translations” but could be easily adapted/used for other plays. Students are encouraged to make notes on multiple features including the characters’ attitudes, impact on them as readers, and how the characters speak. I usually print one copy of this out on A4 and then blow it up to A3 size to give students more space to write. It can also be uploaded to your school’s VLE so that students can download extra copies if they need it (or if they prefer to type onto a digital copy).

Classical characters in Translations (Brian Friel)

Classical characters in Translations (Brian Friel)

This worksheet/activity is designed for MA-HA A Level/IB English A students. It provides the references made in the play to characters from classical literature/mythology, in the order in which they are mentioned in the play, so is a great resource for revision. Students can work in class or at home to locate the quotation where the character is mentioned (if they put act/scene numbers this helps their essay-writing/referencing skills generally). Students are then encouraged to explain the significance of this being included (this column in the chart could be an extension task for those of higher ability, or all students could be asked to do it). Prompts are included to help students with the explanation/aid differentation.

Literature Circles: Student Reading Groups

Literature Circles: Student Reading Groups

Literature Circle praxis is meant to aid students in reading comprehension. This can take many forms. Student groups should remain 3-4 in size, depending on the regularity of attendance. Student should be able to work in an environment that affords active listening, active reading (including annotation), and writing reflection. Literature Circles can take one lesson or several days, depending on level and length of reading. The desired outcome can be to engage the reading as a group member with a particular ROLE or to use that ROLE to process a specific aspect of the text. Roles include: Discussion Director Vocabulary Enricher Literary Luminary Checker (for task/role objectives) Summarizer Artful Artist Character Captain Passage Picker Reporter Bridge Builder Any combination of the above roles can be assigned by the teacher. It is up to their discretion which roles should be used and in what groupings. Some roles overlap in responsibilities. Those that overlap are also differentiated for various learners.
