Shakespeare Monopoly Revision

Shakespeare Monopoly Revision

A Revision tool used with Year 7 after studying Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' and Sonnet 106. This board follows a point system for each correct answer, so therefore it does not need too much printing. It also includes some very generic questions. Can be adapted.

Poetry analysis assessment preparation  (Belfast confetti) post analysis

Poetry analysis assessment preparation (Belfast confetti) post analysis

This lesson is a post analysis/reading lesson. It was a lesson I used for my observation, I have included my observation planning sheet; a self-reflection assessment sheet (differentiated) and the lesson itself (PowerPoint) this includes group analysis/individual analysis tasks, preparing pupils to attempt an analysis assessment. You will need a copy of the poem itself, otherwise all resources are included. This lesson is not a reading/poetry analysing lesson, it is a lesson that should be used after you have read through/analysed Belfast confetti and you are preparing/aiding your class in reading assessment practice.

The Lady of Shalott Introduction

The Lady of Shalott Introduction

Creative introduction to the ballad using images inspired by the poem. Ideal for the first lesson when students have no prior knowledge of the poem. In groups, give out the different images. They create the 'backstory' behind the image - as creatively as possible! Then each group presents their story idea in front of their image (which can be projected via the PowerPoint). This could be followed by a prediction activity of how all the images might fit together.

AQA English Literature Paper 2 Bundle: Modern Texts and Poetry  (version 2)

AQA English Literature Paper 2 Bundle: Modern Texts and Poetry (version 2)

Three complete units of work that go through the teaching of An Inspector Calls, all 15 of the Conflict and Power poems AND a selection of Unseen Poems. I've included a version of the poetry anthology I've created that lends itself to annotating and revising better than the AQA version too - bit of a beast that. Also, you will find attached a spreadsheet that allows you to track the scores for all of these components.
