Lilly Allen - writers bias and gender stereotypes discussion

Lilly Allen - writers bias and gender stereotypes discussion

This resource looks at writers use of language to reflect opinion and bias in journalism. It can be used in relation to the AQA GCSE English Language exam (8700) for questions 3 and 4 from paper 2 but can also be used in the delivery of L1 and L2 Functional Skills. This resource includes an article with some read and obtain questions which range from simple retrieval of information to questions which require deeper thought and inference, which helps those teachers with mixed ability classes. It also includes a discussion element which looks at gender stereotypes and roles of women and motherhood, which the article touches upon. I have personally found that by including these deeper social and stereotypical elements into my classes helps students to navigate their own thoughts and feelings on certain topics, but also allows them to have their ideas challenged and to work towards accepting diversity. Female stereotypes and sexism is very topical at the moment in the light of the Weinstein scandal and so this is a resource which could be expanded upon. Hope it helps

30 Halloween Photos PowerPoint Presentation + 31 Different Teaching Activities To Try in The Class

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of the photos. I have created a second presentation describing 31 different ways you could use this teaching resource in the classroom. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting Halloween display. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different rich Halloween activities. The students can then discuss what they think about each one. What is their favourite activity and why? The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
