Pride and Prejudice Comprehension Activities Booklet!

Pride and Prejudice Comprehension Activities Booklet!

This resource booklet contains a wide range of age-appropriate, engaging, and meaningful comprehension activities for use throughout the reading of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice.' Teachers have found them particularly useful in comprehension or guided reading sessions. They are perfect for aiding the progress of children towards meeting the KS4 expectations within the new National Curriculum framework. Children have found these resources extremely engaging, and for teachers there is explicit information within each task regarding which comprehension strands the task is designed to demonstrate. They also relate to key extracts, characters, and themes from the story, ensuring that children gain a deep understanding of the text. Activities within the booklet include: - 'Context: Regency England' - to aid students with 'Drawing on knowledge of the purpose, audience for and context of the writing, including its social, historical and cultural context and the literary tradition to which it belongs, to inform evaluation;' - 'Austen's Description - to aid students with 'Analysing a writer’s choice of vocabulary, form, grammatical and structural features, and evaluating their effectiveness and impact;' - 'Mr Darcy' - to aid students with 'Seeking evidence in the text to support a point of view, including justifying inferences with evidence;' - 'Editing the Novel' - to aid students with 'Making an informed personal response, recognising that other responses to a text are possible and evaluating these.' Plus many, many more activities (the booklet is almost 30 pages in length!) I've also added it as a PDF in case the formatting differs on your computer. All images are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on a separate document (included).

Reading tasks-The Dancing Bear by Michael Morpurgo

Reading tasks-The Dancing Bear by Michael Morpurgo

There are ready made comprehension questions based on the book The dancing Bear by Michael Morpurgo. Each question is page linked and there are two copies of the questions on each card ready to be trimmed for pupils to use. In addition there is a bingo task card for independent work also linked to the book and a word search too. I haven't linked it to any year group in particular as with differentiation I feel it could be used with any year group in KS 2.
