An Inspector Calls revision notes

An Inspector Calls revision notes

This is a revision resource of An Inspector Calls packed with notes on characters, themes and main motifs, with each quotes heavily analysed, as well as being linked to the context. I collected notes from videos, revision guides and other places and put them all together, as well as including my own ideas. This is very useful for GCSE students as I had made this for my own exams (the new 9-1 GCSE’s). With these notes I was able to receive grade 9’s on my exams.

EDEXCEL GCSE English language - paper 1 question 4

EDEXCEL GCSE English language - paper 1 question 4

This session explores structural features for paper 1 , question 4 of the EDEXCEL GCSE English exam by looking at an extract of Margret Atwoods The Handmaids Tale. This lesson is quick paced, engaging and exciting which explores human rights and human rights violations. This lesson helps to expose students to events that have and are taking place around the globe and to encourage awareness and tolerance, therefore embedding equality and diversity but also British Values. This is a great lesson to invite youth workers to attend and help support activities and group discussions as they can bring another dimension to this topic, therefore encouraging cross school or college participation in English and encouraging a holistic approach to education. Students work in groups and pairs to break down and examine the extract, they explore ideas of culture and individuality whilst also looking at the ways the Margret Atwood uses structural features to communicate atmosphere and repression to her audience. The lesson ends with a practice question, peer marking and a small self assessment plenary. The lesson comes with the full extract, powerpoint of the entire lesson, worksheets and two videos, one exploring human rights and the other is the trailer for The Handmaids Tale. I used to teach in a college where lessons came in 3 hour blocks therefore there is enough material for 3 hours in this resource, but it can be altered into smaller sessions depending on your timetable. Please note that TES previews an at times distort the look of the resource but this is not a true reflection. Hope it helps.

The New Pupil: Short Story and Imaginative Writing Unit

The New Pupil: Short Story and Imaginative Writing Unit

This unit of work comprises of a short story about a new pupil coming to school who is considered different by the others. This should lead to some discussion about what makes people considered different. The pupil is bullied throughout the day, with the bullying getting progressively worse. The reader learns the bullies own life issues. The story teaches an important moral message and leads to many possible discussions. Many of these are introduced in a worksheet asking the pupil to note their thoughts on the story in detail, with many questions and discussion points raised. The unit then becomes an imaginative writing unit. Various elements of the short story are used as a springboard for the pupils to plan then write their own story about a new pupil coming to a school and being considered different. The unit could be used as part of an English course and should last for a half term if taught once a week. It could be used in late Primary School or early Secondary School. It is also a very good unit to teach to older SEN pupils.

During the practical response, pupils will develop their artistic skills and processes using a variety of media to communicate meaning and intent. The unit of work contains an illustrated Power point presentation that is useful for whole class discussions relating to the ideals behind this movement. A chronology of Magritte’s life that includes points of interest to bring greater understanding of the man as an artist. There is also an array of creative tasks that focus on selected works of art for pupils to respond to in their own unique way. This unit of work is easily adapted to suit the needs of individual teachers. It can be covered in-depth over half a term or dipped-into as required. The Surrealist movement originally arose in response to the written word/poetry and as such Magritte’s work is a brilliant way to inspire creative/descriptive writing. The work produced in response to the chosen paintings [art or writing] is always remarkable and as unique as each pupil. All illustrations used have been tagged with Creative Commons licenses.
