I made this last year when teaching 'Frankenstein&' at AS for the OCR English literature spec (although could be adapted).
I kept it to myself for a year but I think it&';s time to share the love. It's very detailed - could give to students as there are loads of activities but also would be useful if you&'re tackling the text for the first time - as a PGCE/NQT in particular, as many bits could be adapted into lesson activities.
Fly free, Frankenstein.... into the &';darkness and distance'!

This is all the resources I’ve used for the lit and lang GCSE coursework on Jekyll and Hyde. The question I used was: How does Robert Louis Stevenson create mystery and suspense in the first three chapters of ‘The Stranger Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’? I started with the powerpoint and research homework. Then, analysed the chapters. Chapters 2&3 are broken up by questions and glossaries, whereas chap.1 has seperate questions. Moving on to language analysis and finally the essay plan. My class is a bit mixed, so some of them are voluntarily using chapter 4 in the essay as well. Hope this all makes sense! And is of some use to you!
A full lesson or so focusing on Weimar and Nazi Germany. A great resource for all KS5 students (may be more suitable for higher level KS4 students too) but here is being used as part of my Weimar and Nazi Germany topic - I have other resources connected. Suitable for both British curriculum and the international curriculum. GCSE/ IGCSE/ A Level/ IB.
Attached is a great learning resource - very straight forward and easy to use. Can be used for any exam and as a fantastic supplement to whichever textbook you are using.
Excellent for PGCE students / NQTs / non-specialists as all the work has been done for you.

A series of fact sheets I received from the Danish Embassy in London prior to undertaking our International schools week. They were incredibly helpful as you can see. I thought I would share them to save resources for the embassy :D

This is a scheme of full lessons and assessment material that that I wrote for GCSE controlled assessment for comparing Shakespeare's work with poems. The poems being used are Education For Leisure, Hitcher and Stealing and the assessment is about comparing disturbed characters. Lots if language analysis of Shakespeare and teaching pupils how to link themes and ideas. Each lesson is separate with resources embedded at the end.
Covers plot, characters, theme and context.
All extremely detailed and includes 'did you know?' interesting facts.
Please note that not all powerpoints have learning objectives on as I am going to add these on at a later date and have not had time as of yet as I have spent hours making these.
All decorated and covers exam practice.
Please leave feedback. Thank you.
In preparing the Reflections on Life Slide Shows I researched quotations from many different sources. This is a great collection of Native American ones. I pasted onto this file from many sites and will, when time, try to include references to the original websites.
There is a lot of material here including part of an autobiography by Chief Black Hawk, dictated to a government interpreter in the region, and edited by John B. Patterson, an Illinois journalist, who published it in 1833.
As always, any rating and comments would be appreciated.

Encourage students in Key Stage 3 English to read for pleasure. In these two 45-minute lessons, raise students' awareness of context in literature by considering the time and place of writing and the author's life and opinions. Show them how background pre-reading and trying to predict content makes reading more enjoyable, and helps them understand works which are distant from them in time and/or place.
These lessons introduce students to the American author Christopher Morley and his short novel The Haunted Bookshop. Materials are provided for those who wish to follow the lesson by reading it.
Continuation of blog started in September 2011.
As a practising theist, who tries to respond to all the ups and downs of life from a spiritual perspective, I feel that my life experiences may be a useful resource.
Some have been kind enough to encourage me with this. A few people tell me that they read it regularly, so for them and any other casual readers I continue.
The one on 29th and 30th includes 2 photos of the kitties aged 4 weeks
best wishes and love to all
Complete notes (basically like a textbook) for AS students. It is written as a chronological account, building in key debates. The reason for chronological rather than thematic focus is because the course has been taught in discrete sections and this is designed to bring it all together. It is not the final, proofed draft and some of the footnoting still needs to be done, but I thought I would upload it in case anyone finds it useful for the imminent exams. I'll post a revised copy when it is complete.
This 137-page Workbook Edition of ‘The General Prologue’ is built around a full copy of the original text, with a new inter-line modern translation, and together with the other versions of the resource available at LitWorks.com offers access to the text in a variety of ways. Principally, it is a page-by-page reading guide, drawing students’ attention, by means of illuminating comments and challenging questions, to significant details in the narrative. It suggests a structured way of approaching the text, using the highly effective SCASI (Setting, Character, Action, Style and Ideas) framework. It also carries a series of essay prompts in the style of external examinations (GCE A Level, IB and AP) which encourage students to take a wider view of the work and relate it to fundamental literary and critical concepts.
