Ok this is the first knowledge rich unit that I put together for Y8 based on Steinhbeck’s Of Mice and Men. My school wanted us to create new knowledge contextual booklets and work from these rather than endless printing. I have created a detailed scheme of work following five stages of a lesson - Do Now, Explanation/Reading, Modeling, Deliberate practice and Plenary. I have included all lessons in the scheme, the context booklet and glossary.
It is by no means perfect and I gathered some ideas from other members on TES and some other resources I collected many years ago. Contains a variety of assessment opportunities including creative writing, speaking and listening and extended writing opportunities (focusing on analysing language and structure etc). It took a very long time to create but I hope you can use some of it.
