Fully resourced scheme of work to accompany this KS3 text. Power-point and resources combine reading and writing activities and there is plenty of scope for discussion of the key themes arising in the text.
This is a fully resourced, fully differentiated SOW to teach Other Side of Truth. It covers the whole text with a range of activities - reading skills (fiction/ non-fiction), writing skills (create and non-fiction) and speaking and listening. There are linked poems and context and enough lessons to cover a full 12 week term. Taught to year 7 but could be used up to year 9 as there are tasks to challenge high ability students.
This bundle contains a variety of differentiated models for recounts including models with high quality vocab and low quality vocab for children to discuss the impact of sentence structure and vocabulary on the reader.
These provided a fantastic basis for high quality writing based on the book: The Other Side Of The Truth.
The Other Side of Truth by Beverley Naidoo tells the story of a Nigerian family torn apart by the depth of their mother. Femi and Sade, the children, enter England illegally and the story follows their journey as it explores what truth actually is.
This 12-week scheme works through the book and combines activities linked to Power of Reading and Talk for Writing. Grammar is linked into the scheme based on the type of writing. Weeks are made up of 1/ 2 /3 and 4 lessons allowing for writing to take place over 2 days and also editing lessons.
Throughout the 12-week scheme, the children will study in detail and write at length the following text types:

If your students enjoyed Under the Same Moon, this film takes the same topic to the next level. 3 stories are intertwined in Mexico, Cuba and Morocco as three children and their families deal with different consequences from the departure of loved ones to the "other side". This film brings up MANY topics of discussion about immigration, dangers of their trips and life for those left behind. Movie guide contains 30 questions in Spanish and English and 7 topics for discussion follow-up. Movie is rated PG-13. A very good film and lots to talk about afterwards with your students!
This is a game I created and use with Y9 as part of a SOW that addresses the question of 'What is real?'
This game features in a lesson on the Matrix and we explore whether or not students think it's always best to know the truth. The link to the film is made through the choice of the red and blue pill.
I devised the game in order to help students find reasons and give justifications for deciding to either stay in the Matrix, or leave and discover the truth.
It's necessary to print the game board as A3 and the cards as A4.
A powerpoint presentation showing a little storyboard about people seeing a cube from different sides, and how they work out who is telling the truth about what they see. Great for starting discussions about seeing things from other perspectives, and listening to others. Also could be a story starter.
I designed to give pupils choice in their outcome. Pupils use resources found for homework or give access to internet to gain as many points as they can before the end of the day at G8 summit. Also works well as a cover lesson.
