Science Fiction - Figurative Language

We focus on using figurative language to improve our descriptions of dystopias. We look at similes, metaphors, personification, adjectives and other language techniques to help improve our descriptive writing. Moreover, we analyze a short extract for techniques and look at their impact on the reader. A fully differentiated and resourced lesson for KS3 students but easily adaptable for KS4 students.

Gothic fiction: The Woman in Black

(2)
A fully-fleshed resource, which has activities designed for analysis of two extracts from The Woman in Black. There is an activity which looks at Ann Radcliffe’s definitions of horror and terror. Included is an extended writing question and writing frame. I have also added a creative writing task with a model response, plus a re-drafted model which could be used to illustrate the importance of making conscious choices as an author. I use the resource with very able year 8 classes, but it would be suitable for key stage 3 and 4 students alike. 15 slides in length and enough material for up to two lessons. Lesson has been updated with working links (September 2019).

KS3 Creative Writing Dystopian Fiction

(0)
I initially designed this scheme (of up to eight lessons) for a very low ability group of students who were, as reluctant writers, worried about their writing assessment. The assessment is placed across the first few slides, but you could skip it. It is heavily scaffolded, with accompanying planning and assessment sheet fir the assessment and some worksheets. The scheme then teaches punctuation and grammar, with starters assessing current learning and short writing activities designed to demonstrate progress. After students have mastered this, they move on to exploring how to use simile and metaphor. You will need a DVD copy of War of the Worlds and Hunger Games for the first few lessons.

Dystopian Fiction Booklet

This resource includes a booklet containing 10 extracts from 10 works of dystopian fiction by 10 different authors. The booklet contains imaginative and thought-provoking explorations of dystopian worlds - and each is ripe for analysis. Authors featured include Suzanne Collins, E.M. Forster and George Orwell. Also included is a PowerPoint with a brief introductory lesson to the dystopian genre. This explains the key features of dystopian literature and introduces the key vocabulary associated with the genre. This is perfect for a KS3 module or unit of work on dystopian fiction. It works well in conjunction with creative writing tasks. PowerPoint saved as PDF.

A set of texts gathered around the theme of Childhood aimed at guiding pupils in Years 7-9 through the range of text-types they will need to be familiar with to be successful when studying the new GCSE curriculum.
