The Seven ages of man- William Shakespeare

The Seven ages of man- William Shakespeare

I created this lesson during a topic titled "The history of the English Language". It explores language features used within the poem and exploration of key quotations. I have attached the poem as a blank copy for students to annotate and analyse. Included is a model answer, broken into a writing format for students to learn from and then have a go at responding themselves. This also includes a series of peer assessment questions for students to ask and respond to.

Three resources focusing on literacy skills including CV writing, constructing a cover letter and writing a persuasive article. The CV Skills material is spread over three lessons. Originally used with a mixed ability year 9 group, this would also work well with higher ability year 8 class.

a conversation about a job ad

This is a worksheet for level 9 students. It includes cards of job ads. They will use this information to do the table completion activity. They will also use the information in the cards in the conversation about looking for a job. Teacher's may also use the cards of job ads in a guessing activity in the class as a warm up of the lesson.

Persuasive speeches and rhetorical techniques

Persuasive speeches and rhetorical techniques

I have bundled together four resources which I think will be useful when revising speeches and persuasive writing techniques. One of the resources takes Martin Luther King as its inspiration, another looks at Barack Obama's Yes We Can speech. Suitable for ages 11+

Target Setting Bundle for ESOL and Entry Level Learners (ESOL/ESL/EAL/EFL)

Target Setting Bundle for ESOL and Entry Level Learners (ESOL/ESL/EAL/EFL)

In this brilliant time saving bundle you get two target banks aimed at ESOL and entry level learners inluding both academic and pastoral targets as well as templates to write out targets and review them. These are resources I've tried and tested over my teaching career. Target setting can be long and arduous and is hard work with second language learners. These target resources take the strain out of target setting allowing learners to choose their own relevant targets from a set of common areas to improve. These are commended targets that have been tried and tested in an FE environment. This bundle provides the perfect basis for a tutorial lesson on target setting as well as over 20 key targets and over 120 practical actions students can take to achieve their goals.
