Poetry Comparison: J Cole and Tupac

Poetry Comparison: J Cole and Tupac

A lesson teaching students how to compare poetry. I'm all about trying to make learning relatable to my students and for them not just to learn about poets they cannot connect with. This is why I have decided to use J Cole ("Change") and Tupac's ("Changes") songs for this lesson. Students will: -begin with a general overview of what it means to compare -Work in groups to unpick the songs using TSLAP (Questions are given to help aid students analysis of the songs) -Identify the similarities and differences between the songs -Class discussion -Complete a comparison essay (sentence starters provided and comparison flashcard) My Youtube video on how to analyse a poem using TSLAP is also included. This could be set as a homework task before the lesson so students already have a secure understanding of how to analyse a poem.

Conditional Clauses with Eminem

Conditional Clauses with Eminem

A brief review of the three different kinds of conditional clauses in the English language, along with examples of their usage as rap lyrics in songs from iconic rapper Eminem (born Marshall Mathers). Students have to determine which type of conditional clauses Eminem uses, and highlight which words helped them reach their conclusion. Perfect as supplemental practice, especially for students who love rap music or maybe think that they're "too cool" for English class.

Paper 2 Question 3 AQA English Language spec 8700 - Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin

Paper 2 Question 3 AQA English Language spec 8700 - Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin

A fantastic full lesson based on The Forever 27 Club comes with 6 resources which included articles, worksheets, full power point with guidance notes, quiz, music clips and independent study. This lesson covers the essential skills needed for Paper 2 Question 3 and also allows time to cover some deeper social issues which some of your students may have experience with, such as body image, gender stereotypes and substance abuse. This lesson enables the students to look at a piece of non fiction and identify language techniques used to influence the readers. It is a fun and fully interactive quick paced lesson where the students investigate language but also learn about two of the most influential musicians of our time and how their personal issue are still issues we face today. The lesson aims to walk students through the process of piecing together a final answer, based on their investigations, which would be expected in the final exam. The lesson ends with a student self assessment plenary called "The Hand of Truth" and optional independent study. Although the source used in this lesson is not from the 19th century it does still instil the skills a student will need to answer this question. Further examples of older sources can also be found in my shop which will be significantly useful when teaching paper 2. This lesson is designed for a 3 hour session but is easily adaptable to suit your own timetable. Hope it helps.

What are you talking about? A fun and interactive speaking and listening game!

What are you talking about? A fun and interactive speaking and listening game!

This resource is great for students of all ages, I have played it with every year group in my school and they love it. Students work in two teams and take turns selecting a member of their team to take a seat with their back to the board. A series of images are then displayed in relation to a selected topic. The individual with their back to the board must try to guess what the image is by listening to the clues their team-mates give them. 3 versions of the game included but you can create your own by replacing images.

Silly Song Splat Game

Silly Song Splat Game

I am having to teach Summer School in a British International School in Spain. So, I am trying to reinforce English through song. I put together a group of some of my favorite silly songs when I was growing up. Although, I did find one or two new one's that tickled my fancy! I have a mixed group of year 3, year 6 and year 8, so I am trying to do something that spans the year groups. I have been teaching the kids these songs this week and I though it would be fun to reinforce the songs through a game of Splat! There are three rounds. 1. Rhymes 2. Questions about the songs 3. Homophones. All you need is some colourful fly swatters or hands, and hey- presto!
