*2015+ SPEC SKILLS* Monsters Poetry SOL - Year 8 or 9

*2015+ SPEC SKILLS* Monsters Poetry SOL - Year 8 or 9

This SOL contains 20 fully planned and differentiated lessons and aims to teach poetry analysis skills to year 8 students. It incorporates teaching both reading skills (AO1 and AO2) and descriptive and narrative writing skills (AO5 and AO6), often in response to poems they have studied. I have also snuck in some Language AO4 questions to stretch higher ability students, though that is not the focus of this scheme. In this SOL, monsters are explored as being mythical creatures, wild animals and human beings. A range of stimuli, including still and moving image (fiction and non-fiction), newspaper extracts, wordalls and audio clips have been used throughout this SOL to help students to engage creatively, personally and at times critically with the scheme's topic. The SOL covers the teaching of the following poems: - The Jabberwocky - Medusa - Education for Leisure - Caliban's Dream (The Tempest) - Paradise Lost - The Kraken - The Villain Six homework tasks (which have been adapted from various online sources) can be found by following the link below: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/monsters-poetry-sol-homework-11697376 Enjoy and please do rate it/contact me with any feedback that I can use to benefit the rest of us relentlessly hard-working professionals. :)

Valentine

Valentine

A lesson on Carol Ann Duffy's Valentine where students cut up an actual onion and think about how it relates to the poem. Steps are given with questions to guide their thinking. I used this with low ability KS3. This lesson needs to be supervised closely (I fortunately had 2 support assistants when I did it).
