Inferring the Hidden Meanings in Texts

This lesson enables students to 'read between the lines' in texts and infer significant meanings. Utilising a range of visual, kinaesthetic, and reading tasks, students not only gain an increased understanding of the importance of inference in English, but also gain an awareness of its importance in other areas of life. The lesson follows an interesting and engaging step-by-step learning journey, which helps students to: - Define what inference is; - Understand the importance of inference; - Infer what they can see; - Infer what they hear; - Infer what they read, using key sentence starters and textual evidence; - Formulate P.E.E. inference responses, where necessary utilising the included scaffolds and help-sheets; - Peer/self assess their learning attempts. Included in this resource pack: - Full whole-lesson PowerPoint presentation; - P.E.E scaffold sheet; -Writing to analyse helpsheet; - Pictures required for development task; - Teacher guidance All images are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on the final slide.

English Language: Understanding Meanings and RepresentationsQuick View

English Language: Understanding Meanings and Representations

This resource included two lessons worth of content plus various activities which helps pupils analyse how meanings and representations are created through language. I have used it for my AS class who are learning the new AQA English Language specification. The lesson applies to Paper 1: Language and the Individual and was used at the very start of the year. It could also be used as a revision lesson though and for GCSE pupils. In the beginning I got pupils to understand what 'representation' means. We looked at different representations of London through various photos and looked at how a men's magazine portrays men and women differently. We then moved on to longer texts, such as a food shop's poster and a website's representation of their company. All the texts are provided within the PowerPoint. I have also included answers to the activities.

Using commas to clarify the meaning of sentences

This pack includes a SMART Notebook file with big picture, objective and some input activities. Tasks include: A short starter task which I used as AfL A task aimed at identifying sentences with mistakes and adding commas to correct A task where children are trying to put commas in different places so the same sentence has 2 meanings. There is also an extension which asks the children to create sentences of their own with 2 meanings. Answers for the main 2 sheets are included, answers for the short task are on the Notebook. I used this with middle to more able Year 5's and the second part was a challenge.

Puzzles about the MEANQuick View

Puzzles about the MEAN

Three pairs of worksheets with answers that are designed to help students understand the use of the mean as an average when data is added or removed from the calculation. e.g. the mean weight of 5 people is 70 kg. Another person joins the group and the mean is now 71kg. How much did the sixth person weigh. A lot of students find it hard to see that if you know the mean of a set of numbers and how many numbers there are then you can find the TOTAL of all the numbers. These questions will make them think about how they can use this idea. GCSE DfE references S4, N2 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop
