Persuasive Speech or Writing Literacy Mat

Persuasive Speech or Writing Literacy Mat

This simple literacy mat is designed to help students produce either a persuasive piece of writing or a speech. As you can see from the preview, students are given a series of sentence starters to help them scaffold their answers. This is a tried and tested resource which works brilliantly with students of all abilities. As a history teacher, I used this mat with my students to write formal letters of complain to General Haig about conditions in the trenches or to write a persuasive letter to a Norman Lord recommending why he should replace his Motte and Bailey Castle with a Square Keep. This resource has been so successful that it has been adopted by our English Faculty and spread around both the LEA and our Trust. This is a brilliant resource which works with all ages and abilities. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

Justice : Injustice and Protest in Music

Justice : Injustice and Protest in Music

A mix and match activity in which students must listen to YouTube videos (links provided) of famous protest / injustice songs and match up the lyrics with the song. The final section of the activity involves them researching the meaning behind the song and for what purpose it was written. Did this with Year 7,8 and 9 class and they loved getting the chance to listen to the music. They followed it up with a presentation on their own favourite protest songs. A list of these is also provided in the second sheet.

Justice - famous examples from history

Justice - famous examples from history

In this mix and match activity, children are given a variety of historical figures and scenarios They must research to find out what crime was committed by the figure or during the episode of history. They must then match them up with picture and the punishment that was given for the crime. I created this for secondary IMYC unit on Justice. The activity was very stimulating for children as they also had to find definitions. It prompted much discussion as they completed it in small groups as a challenge to complete in under two hours.

Black Civil Rights in USA Revison Cards / Dingbats

Black Civil Rights in USA Revison Cards / Dingbats

These revision cards cover all the key factors that you will need to know about Black Civil Rights in the USA from 1950 - 1970. They make an excellent fun starter, mini plenary or plenary to any lesson. They can also be used by students as revision flash cards. There are three main ways that you can use them. Game 1 involves getting students to read out the key words until the other guesses the topic correctly. Game 2 involves additional challenge and stretch by getting students to describe the topic without using any of the key words on the card. The third game, which adds an additional layer of fun or challenge involves playing a round of Pictionary or Charades. I normally give my students 3 minutes of each round to help activate the learning and warm up the class. You could also have a freestyle round where students decide which game they want to play linked to their learning style. If you are trying to engage some under achieving boys, add some competition and get them to keep score in the back of their books. I would recommend printing them off on card and getting your students to cut them out. Then put the cards into an envelope for class use. If you are a student then keep them in your pocket and use them as a flash card to help you learn the key facts, From a revision perspective, you can print off the cards and get your students to learn the key words for a test or for their exams. These are a win, win resource. The kids will love them and they will help to improve your results. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.
