English Language (imaginative)  Exploring plot through the Christmas Carol Good King Wenceslas

English Language (imaginative) Exploring plot through the Christmas Carol Good King Wenceslas

Here is a skill based lesson centred (somewhat dubiously) on Good King Wenceslas. I’ve added the maximum amount of nods to Christmas and fun that I could without resorting to actually addressing Christmas or having fun. Feel free to use it if it’s any use to you. Lesson order: - Starter - Build adjective bank - Listen to carol - Map plot of carol - Read and map the plot of the real Duke Wenceslas - Write a version of the carol that draws from both versions - Plenary - Label plot points Features - Timers - Model paragraph

Lies We Tell Ourselves - writing from an adult perspective

Lies We Tell Ourselves - writing from an adult perspective

A task for student's studying the novel Lies We Tell Ourselves. Students must create a character of a teacher and consider how they would have felt about the process of desegregation in their school. They should consider a number of aspects of their character and then they choose the task they want to complete - this gets them to consider the various conventions of different styles. I extended this over a whole lesson by including some peer assessment and reading of the text.

A Christmas Carol Pointless Game!

Based on the popular game show 'Pointless', this resource is perfect for use as a whole lesson resource, enrichment option, or revision tool. Editable, so that you can change to any other topic or change questions. (I've also added a blank template so that you can make your own games from scratch).

There are several full rounds of questions to build or revisit knowledge of characters, plot, and themes in 'A Christmas Carol.' Round 1. The characters in A Christmas Carol Round 2. Quotations from the text Round 3. Themes, Ideas, and Objects Round 4. Places where the ghosts take Scrooge The nature of this game ensures that the resource can challenge students of all levels.
