This PPT shows some activities you can use when reading the play Face. There are two extended homework possibilities - these can be adapted to be shorter homeworks.

The first PPT is about writing to advise - for the examples I just used magazine 'dear ....' letters. You could also use any agony aunt letters from The Sun website (not always advised but this time they're good!). The second PPT is a reworking of a great PPT I found on TES before so no credit taken but it makes it a bit simpler for revision purposes. The persuader grid can be used to go in their books. With these PPTs I was doing a project on LOs so move/reword the LOs if necessary. Most of you probably won't want the kids to create their own like I did at this point!

Teach the structure and imagery of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Includes group work and whole class work. Put pupils into groups of 4 and allow them copies of Act 1 Scene 5 (perhaps the prologue too). Split class in 2 - half look at strucutre/half at imagery. They can have access to a dictionary, thesaurus, laptop, notes on religious imagery or structure. The idea is to complete the worksheet using the questions to guide them so they can share with others after 30 mins.
This PPT was made to look at The Highwayman and the way in which atmosphere is created in a poem. You do not have to use it just to learn about this specific poem. The idea is read the first stanza and ask pupils to draw the picture they see in their mind's eye. Then get them to label it. Identify why they drew certain images - links to metaphors and then ask them to write a metaphor poem - 5 sentences of metaphors about love, hate, happiness etc.
Powerpoint presentation resources for a scheme of work on the features and tropes of Fairy Stories. Teach the contexts and themes of this genre of writing, and learn how to subvert them.
This lesson is complicated but resources are very adaptable. Idea is that pupils judge their progress using SOLO levels and start at a different station. Each station has a different amount on information on it. They move up the stations as time goes on before using their information to relate their ideas to either an image, quotations or the extract. Depending on ability. The images and facts may be useful to teach any class about racism. The quotations worked well at the end. Ignore SOLO if necessary and just use resources to add to your lesson.
Can be used as success criteria. To go in the middle of tables. To help group discussion or as posters.
