The arguments for and against immortality are adapted from various sources on the Internet.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Scheme (8-10 Lessons) for KS3/KS4 Learners.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Scheme (8-10 Lessons) for KS3/KS4 Learners.

This is a scheme centred on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. This has been used with Mid-High ability KS3 and lower to mid KS4 students and covers a wide range of themes in each of the chapters of the story. Each lesson contains developed learning objectives and key word foci, as well as a starter activity. Periodical homework tasks, assessment tasks and exam style questions are included. You can either teach this with or without the text, but I have taught this alongside the text, which means this scheme can last between 6-10 1 hour lessons. Lessons can also be easily differentiated if needed and assessment / exam style tasks can be easily changed if needed. This scheme works best with KS3 (Year 8-9) learners and lower level KS4 (Year 10) students. There are no other resources needed than each of the detailed lessons. Enjoy!

The Witches - Roald Dahl - Novel Study Presentation

The Witches - Roald Dahl - Novel Study Presentation

This presentation (Powerpoint) covers a HUGE range of learning areas that are available in the novel The Witches by Roald Dahl. Starting with the history of witches and going through the book itself, author, publisher. We then delve into the characters that are in this story (of which there are plenty). Then we explore Settings, what they are and the different settings that are portrayed throughout the story. In every story, there are conventions that the author uses and this is no different in The Witches, There is Exposition, Rising action, climax and then Resolution. Each of these areas is explored in detail. Plot and Theme are also touched on. This presentation was used over the course of a term as students read through the novel, it was accompanied by worksheets that were generic but could change with the different content in the presentation. i.e. when looking at settings the questions were similar but a different setting was explored each lesson. You could take the bits you need or use it as a whole presentation. A fabulous resource when teaching this novel. P.s - There are some pictures with eyes and a man looking over his shoulder in the upper left of some slides. These are there to remind students to look back through the book at something they have already discussed, or look into something with more detail.

(Your class)'s Hunger Games

This is a full lesson plan around the first film (or book) of the Hunger Games. My students loved it! They really got into it and astounded me with their imaginations. Tributes are chosen, as are clothing designers/counselor, and the rest of the class is in charge of making up the different arena possibilities in groups of 4. In this lesson plan there are assessments for oral expression, reading comprehension and written comprehension. I think it would be quite easy to find also something for an oral comprehension as well and the final question round of the games could also be evaluated. Hope your students enjoy it, mine did.

Teaching with Technology

Teaching with Technology

In the classroom, technology can encompass all sorts of tools from low-tech pencil, newspaper publisher, and chalkboard, to the utilization of presentation software, or high-tech tablets, online collaboration, and conferencing tools, and more. The new technologies allow us to try things in physical and virtual classrooms that were not possible before. What you use depends fundamentally on what you are attempting to reach. The best teaching approaches for my learners are speaking as well as listening strategies. Apparently we run-through presentations, discussions, conversations, dialogues, teamwork and case studies. I would like to point out that I just use actual, real texts, from the books, newspapers, the song’s lyrics, movies. We often take advantage of different kinds of listening comprehension such as listening to the news, interview presentations, et cetera. In my view, the most imperative teaching method is encouraging students and motivating them to be active learners.

The guide offers various creative, as well as analytical activities, encouraging students to think about the language used throughout the book, and why it is used in this way, as well as asking readers to start the sequel using their own creative input and interpretation of the book. Research activities include asking students to compose a research report based on true stories that may or may not have inspired the author, Jim Carrington, to write this book. An in depth and detailed reading guide, offering both an analytical and creative approach to studying the text.
