GCSE English - AQA Paper 1 Question 4 THE HANDMAIDS TALE

GCSE English - AQA Paper 1 Question 4 THE HANDMAIDS TALE

This session explores structural features for paper 1 , question 4 of the AQA GCSE English exam by looking at an extract of Margret Atwoods The Handmaids Tale. This lesson is quick paced, engaging and exciting which explores human rights and human rights violations. This lesson helps to expose students to events that have and are taking place around the globe and to encourage awareness and tolerance, therefore embedding equality and diversity but also British Values. This is a great lesson to invite youth workers to attend and help support activities and group discussions as they can bring another dimension to this topic, therefore encouraging cross school or college participation in English and encouraging a holistic approach to education. Students work in groups and pairs to break down and examine the extract, they explore ideas of culture and individuality whilst also looking at the ways the Margret Atwood uses structural features to communicate atmosphere and repression to her audience. The lesson ends with a practice question, peer marking and a small self assessment plenary. The lesson comes with the full extract, powerpoint of the entire lesson, worksheets and two videos, one exploring human rights and the other is the trailer for The Handmaids Tale. I used to teach in a college where lessons came in 3 hour blocks therefore there is enough material for 3 hours in this resource, but it can be altered into smaller sessions depending on your timetable. Please note that TES previews an at times distort the look of the resource but this is not a true reflection. Hope it helps.

This is the second and third lesson for my Australia scheme of work. But it all depends how long your classes are. This time it’s not a powerpoint but flipchart. If you don’t have it Activinspire can be easily downloaded but if you have problems with this please contact me and I can send you a converted pdf edition. This is to go alongside this article: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/the-13-year-old-girl-sent-on-a-day-trip-to-australia-11943247 Topics covered: General information on Australia (population, capital city, landmarks etc) Origins as a penal colony Discovery of gold Children sent to Australia A land of opportunities - immigration to Australia

THE 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL SENT ON A 'DAY-TRIP' TO AUSTRALIA

THE 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL SENT ON A 'DAY-TRIP' TO AUSTRALIA

This was an article originally found on the BBC, however, I have edited and changed the text a little to make it easier for non-native English speakers. I have added footnotes with the French translations. You could easily edit this to change to the appropriate language or simply delete the footnotes. This is accompanied by comprehension questions and a true or false activity that I created to check understanding of the article. This also goes with a flipchart I created on the early history of Australia which can be purchased on my page. My students really enjoyed reading this text as they were curious about the plight of Pamela and felt really sorry for her and what she, along with other unfortunate children, had to go through. Any feedback regarding how I have created the questions would be great!

AUSTRALIA - A NATION SHAPED BY BRITISH EMIGRATION

AUSTRALIA - A NATION SHAPED BY BRITISH EMIGRATION

I created this as part of my Australia scheme of work. In my school one class a week (55 minute lesson) is dedicated to Australia and this was an article from the BBC that I edited to make a bit shorter and a little easier. The text is still quite difficult though, so not for low ability classes! My students’ level is approximately B1-B2. Later I am going to upload more powerpoints on all things Australia. I created my own true or false and comprehension questions to go along with the text. I have also created footnotes with French translations for some difficult words; however, you could simply edit these words to the appropriate language or just delete the footnotes! Any feedback appreciated.

A basic guide to The Commonwealth (2018)

A basic guide to The Commonwealth (2018)

This is an introduction to The Commonwealth. It was originally created for middle school students in France with a level of approxinately B1. So I have purposely made the language quite simple. It has been updated for 2018: with the inclusion of The Gambia returning after leaving and the news that Prince Charles will be taking over The Queen as head (when she dies). I have created a Powerpoint for the teacher to be shown on the overhead projector, one to be printed out to give to the students with fewer slides (optional). I usually choose the option 4 slides per page when printing, so I don’t print out too many pages. There is also an activity to answer questions on the powerpoint which could be started in class then finished for homework, then a class test to be done on a different day. If you prefer you can skip the **each one, teach one **activity.

ESL/EFL Speaking Activity: Role Play Debate

ESL/EFL Speaking Activity: Role Play Debate

Each pair of students gets the same topic with either Agree or Disagree information. I usually assign the topics randomly. They’ll have a couple of minutes for preparation, I recommend that they write brief notes and if possible, to do some quick online research. Another modification can be that you give them the topics for homework so they can prepare more thoroughly. It depends on the level of the students and the difficulty of the topics. When they are ready, let them talk in pairs, circle and monitor. When they finish, have a short feedback discussion with them: Were they able to persuade their opponent? What arguments did they use?

The Death Penalty USA / Capital Punishment USA

The Death Penalty USA / Capital Punishment USA

Power point about the death penalty/capital punishment in the U.S. This is meant to encourage students to think/pair up and discuss during a certain amount of time and then share their thoughts when time is up. You may want to download a new sound at the end of the countdown as mine has probably vanished (I think I used ) . You ought to choose the same sound all throughout your power point so it doesn’t become too much of a distraction. I am also including four informational sheets focusing on the five methods of capital punishment in the U.S. Make sure that your audience can cope with the details about the methods of execution, which are quite horrible. There are many ways of using these sheets, whether you decide to just share the information orally (and maybe simplify), or whether you want to assign groups and have them work on some Jigsaw Puzzle task (cooperative learning). The power point includes questions about statistics, methods, vocabulary and personal opinions. I have only tested this material once in Norway with 15-year-old pupils who have ESL, but it worked quite well as they were engaged and fascinated. Feel free to download and modify as it suits you.

These two videos deal with Autralian Aborigines , a glimpse at their history and way of life, and the topic of the stolen generations. I have only used parts of the two videos (the times are clearly indicated on the worksheet). The first part of the worksheet deals with the general background; the second part deals more specifically with the official apology presented by the Autralian government to the Aborigines. Skills: oral comprehension oral expression The tasks are very guided to help weaker students since they may have trouble understanding the videos.

This bundle includes different Reading Comprehension Worksheets suitable for higher intermediate advanced ESL learners. The texts explore the lives and fates of children who are deprived of their most basic rights as a result of poverty and/or war. After carefully reading each story / text, students are required to complete some comprehension exercises including: questions, True or False, gap filling exercises, crosswords, word search exercises, matching exercises, crosswords and engage in in-depth classroom discussions on topics relevant to each text. The vocabulary used in the texts is rather advanced and can also be used for IGCSE, TOEFL or IELTS vocabulary building purposes.
