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.

This session encourages independent / discovery learning and is filled with quick paced paired activities in which the students work together to identify and source conclusions from the text given. There is a short class discussion fore the students pool all their findings together in order to come up with a structured answer. Work sheets and support material is available to support weaker students and a starter paragraph is available to get the students into the swing of writing a prepared exam style answer. There is a start and plenary included in the session but there is also enough room for this session to be adapted any way you need it in order to suit your own students and teaching style. Please keep mind that TES previews sometimes distorts the PPT slides and this is not a reflection of how the resource looks. Hope it helps

A JOURNEY ACROSS THE USA

A JOURNEY ACROSS THE USA

I HAVE NOTICED THAT WHEN I CLICK “PREVIEW”, ONLY PART OF THE ACTIVITY APPEARS BUT WHEN I DOWNLOAD IT, I HAVE THE ENTIRE DOCUMENT. THE SECOND PART INCLUDES A CROSSWORD PUZZLE, WHICH MAY EXPLAIN THE GLITCH. I have regularly used this puzzle-solving activity as an ice-breaker at the beginning of the academic year and it works particularly well with 11th graders. It can also be used if you are studying the USA. Students have to solve riddles to discover American states and cities while drawing their itinerary on a map. The activity also enables them to clarify some common confusions (for example, distinction between New York State and NYC). Usually, it takes most students about 50mins to cover the whole activity. The answer key is provided.

CHILDREN'S QUIZ - YEAR 4, 5 OR 6, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, 7 ROUNDS

CHILDREN'S QUIZ - YEAR 4, 5 OR 6, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS, 7 ROUNDS

This is a pub-style quiz that I created for my Year 5 class to play, as part of their rewards party that they had earned. There are 7 rounds in the quiz: a children’s books round, anagrams, maths, music, riddles, famous faces and a sports round. There is a joker card included that the children can use to double their points in any one of the rounds. All the questions and answers are included, so it will be very easy to carry out the quiz, you will just need to print a copy for each team. There is a teacher’s copy as well with all the answers on. The music for the music round is not included, but all I did for that round was turn the laptop round so the children couldn’t see the screen and then played the songs on YouTube. I have included some suggestions for songs you could use. The children really enjoyed the quiz. I can upload each round separately as well if anyone wants. Enjoy!
