This is a series of lessons based on the novel ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas. This scheme was created with mixed ability Year 9s in mind, and would be suited to Year 9 students and above.
Originally created on Google Slides so there may be some slight formatting fixes needed in Powerpoint
The presentation features lessons to run alongside the reading of the novel as a class, with questions, key skills for literature analysis and starters that develop students’ spelling, punctuation and grammar. As this unit is literature focused, the main tasks include: quotation hunts as well as analysis of characters, themes and quotations. There is an mini-assessment opportunity (exploring how setting is created by Thomas) and final assessment question options. There are also some writing activities included.
There are opportunities for independent, paired and group work embedded in the lesson presentations, as well as research.
Challenge and extension tasks, as well as sentence starters to support weaker students, are included with all activities.
