Trump Analysis: Climate Change & Leaving the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Writing to Persuade

Trump Analysis: Climate Change & Leaving the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Writing to Persuade

Two hours' work here at the very least. An analysis of Trump's language (with teacher annotation for ease). Guide your students through this analysis with clear examples (included) of language analysis, lots of techniques for writing to argue/persuade, a model paragraph and a framework for a final essay. A clear and easy-to-follow lesson with everything required to download and go! My GCSE/Higher ability KS3 students love doing this kind of analysis and it's a fab way to get into political rhetoric analysis.

Super Duper Mega Political Rheoric Bundle. A close look at over five political speeches.

Super Duper Mega Political Rheoric Bundle. A close look at over five political speeches.

An absolute bargain! Save 32%! A half term's worth of lessons for a two/three hour-per-week class. Three sets of PowerPoints, annotated examples, models and success criteria. My suggested route through teaching: - Trump on immigration (Lesson 1 - Annotate, Lesson 2 - Essay plan, Lesson 3/4 - Essay) - Nicola Sturgeon on the referendum (Lesson 1 - Annotate, Lesson 2 - Essay plan, Lesson 3/4 - Essay) - Emma Watson on gender equality (Lesson 1 - Annotate, Lesson 2 - Essay plan, Lesson 3/4 - Essay) Bonus Lesson: Trump's plans to leave the Paris agreement (climate change). Bonus Lesson: Hung Parliament! Once those 12 lessons are over, students can be assessed on their writing by creating a speech using some of the language techniques they have studied. Options I gave: - Feminism/Gender Equality - In/Out Europe - Referendum - Banning Trump from the UK All four lessons are really well themed and some include video resources too! They look at a whole range of language features, techniques and stylistic devices that are unique to each speaker. All come with fully annotated speeches, examples of essay paragraphs and clear success criteria for students to follow.

Small actions = Big changes reading comprehension

Small actions = Big changes reading comprehension

This reading comprehension was created for ESL/EAL students with an upper intermediate to Advanced level. The reading text is original and has not been altered. The Initial questions assist the student in writing a short summary of the text. They then move on to comprehension questions and finally, to questions for group or pair discussion. This would work equally well for mother tongue students and could be included in a unit on the environment and environmental problems.

COAL MINING WITH FOLK ARTS AND POETRY - a cross curricular resource for Primary Schools

COAL MINING WITH FOLK ARTS AND POETRY - a cross curricular resource for Primary Schools

This pack brings some background information about coal mining together with songs and poems that can be used in primary schools to explore and analyse the issues surrounding coal mining. It was created by the English Folk Dance and Song Society in partnership with the National Coal Mining Museum for England. There is a wealth of folk music, song and dance associated with coal mining. The living conditions of mining families also feature in songs, as do tales of child labour and poverty. There are many songs about the different jobs and roles that people had, and sad laments about mining disasters that occurred. There is also the rapper dance tradition that grew from coal mining communities in the North East, and tunes that accompanied the dances. The material presented in this pack has all been tried and tested with visitors to the National Coal Mining Museum for England, pupils at Flockton C of E (c) First School, Wakefield (thanks to the East Peak Industrial Heritage Support Programme), and also in The Full English school projects at St John with St Mark CofE Primary School, Bury and Shawlands Primary School, Barnsley. All the material can be used to explore themes of local history, industrial revolution, child labour, poverty and social change. The material is aimed at primary age children and their teachers.
