AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES, THE STOLEN GENERATIONS

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES, THE STOLEN GENERATIONS

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.

GCSE English Language, Paper 1 Question 5, AQA - writing Haiku's

GCSE English Language, Paper 1 Question 5, AQA - writing Haiku's

This is a fun, lively student centered lesson which revolves around team work activities and allowing the students to push their creativity and imagination. Many students struggle with imagination when it comes to question 5 and many panic, especially as it holds so many marks. This lesson uses images to inspire a range of vocabulary, language features and ideas for a storyline all within the planning of a haiku, therefore underpinning some of the essential skills needed to answer this question. This is quick paced session with a range of 10 minute activities which encourage independent learning and team work. I found that many students created a range of fantastic haiku’s which I made into a booklet for the students to take away with them. This sort of thing also scores brownie points with the managers and Ofsted but also helps to develop a sense of achievement and self confidence in English, which many students lack. It is also great for the students to know their work in English has a use other than for passing an exam and many feel pride in that. This lesson covers: planning for written work, synonyms, metaphors, similes, personification, hyperbole, long short sentences, imagination but can be adapted to cover much more if so desired. It ends with a peer marking assessment based on the Facebook liking system using emoticons and a chance to act like an examiner and identify language features. There is a homework task, which if desired, could be turned into a in class task other than homework. Hope it helps

Unseen Poetry: Stephen Lawrence

Unseen Poetry: Stephen Lawrence

A poem written by a former Y9 student of mine after a lesson looking at Stephen Lawrence. Powerful piece of poetry I just had to share with you. "Hopefully it will inspire other people to think about the way society is functioning in the present day and challenge the corrupt aspects of not only our nation but others as well ❤️ " - Caitlin (student) Thank you again.

ESL/EFL Speaking Activity Based On Iconic Photos

ESL/EFL Speaking Activity Based On Iconic Photos

I based this activity on 10 iconic photos, but you can add more that are more local or more significant for your country. This activity is a great starter for discussion about human rights, democracy, and equality, which are things that our modern society still struggles with. I recommend using this activity with students 16+ as the photos may be disturbing for younger students. I hope you find it useful.
