Creative Writing Scheme of Work GCSEQuick View

Creative Writing Scheme of Work GCSE

7 Resources
Full scheme of work covering all aspects of creative writing. Ideal in preparing students for GCSE English Language Paper 1, Section B. Designed with the very latest developments in the 9-1 specification in mind, this is best suited to the AQA syllabus but would be equally useful for both KS3 prep and other exam boards. Please see individual resources for more details. The lessons all work well as stand-alone, but if being used in sequence, the scheme runs as follows: Lesson 1 - Vocabulary Lesson 2 - Sensory Description Lesson 3 - Devices and Techniques Lesson 4 - Narrative and Descriptive Openings Lesson 5 - Sentence Variation Lesson 6 - Characterisation Lesson 7 - Narrative Structure Each lesson takes the form of a ‘masterclass’; each masterclass is packed with a range of activities that will enable your students to truly embed and master each aspect of creative writing. Each ‘lesson’ is probably going to take in excess of 2 hours to get through - you may wish to ‘pick and choose’ activities, or take your time with each skill area and cover them in depth.

Punctuation and SPaG Scheme of WorkQuick View

Punctuation and SPaG Scheme of Work

Complete Punctuation and SPaG scheme of work for Key Stage 3 and GCSE. It’s time to win the battle against poor grammar and punctuation once and for all! Complete unit of work which will allow your students to master advanced punctuation as well as engage with a range of exciting creative writing tasks. If you are anything like me, explicit teaching/reminding of how to properly apply punctuation is ESSENTIAL for all ability ranges, especially with the new specification GCSE placing so much emphasis on AO6. These lessons are certainly geared more towards KS3 and KS4 students. Powerpoints are light hearted and fun, with plenty of images/colour and silly jokes to keep your students engaged and entertained. I’ve found these lessons serve as an excellent ‘crash course’ in punctuation either at the beginning of the academic year or in the run up to the GCSE exams. Below is a list of contents: Commas (£2 if purchased on its own) - Commas powerpoint lessons Commas in a list worksheet Commas in a complex sentences worksheet Colons (£2 if purchased on its own) - Colon powerpoint lessons Mastering colons worksheet Semi-Colons (£2 if purchased on its own)- Semi-colon lesson powerpoints Semi-colon worksheets (x2) Semi-colon writing success criteria worksheet Speech- (£2 if purchased on its own) Speech powerpoint lessons Speech worksheet Speech mixed practice worksheet Writing success criteria worksheet Editing and proof reading - (£3 if purchased on its own) Editing and proof reading mini scheme powerpoint (nearly 50 slides) Editing and proof reading worksheets (£2 if purchased separately) A wide range of proof reading worksheets that you can use to consolidate and improve your student’s SPaG and proof reading abilities after you have finished the unit of work. This unit would suit a range of abilities as there is lots of scope for stretch and challenge, with ambitious success criteria and extension tasks built in throughout. Scaffolding and differentiation options are built in where appropriate. Fully resourced and ready to roll, minimal adaptation or tweaking required. This is obviously a SPaG/Punctuation scheme of work, but it is equally focused on creative/descriptive writing too. Much of the content is therefore ideal for teaching general creative writing skills or preparing for the fiction writing task on the new specification (9-1) GCSE English Language exam. Grab a bargain compared to buying these resources separately. If you loved the resource and think it’s worth 5 stars, why not get another one absolutely free?

KS3 Non-Fiction Writing Scheme of WorkQuick View

KS3 Non-Fiction Writing Scheme of Work

KS3 Non-Fiction Writing Scheme of Work This PowerPoint contains twenty one-hour lessons (233 slides) that focus on nonfiction writing skills, and is aimed at Key Stage Three. There are a wide range of tasks (lessons listed below) that focus on building the key skills of nonfiction writing: planning, language and structure methods, accurate punctuation, vocabulary and proofreading. There are practice questions, original non-fiction model responses, extension tasks, punctuation activities, and a whole bunch more! I have also included a second PowerPoint that can be printed as a resource booklet for students. This will save you time in printing and slicing (and will also save you a fortune on glue sticks!). Additionally, there are weekly homework tasks. And three printable sheets that can be used as KS3 nonfiction cover work if you are in a pinch. The premise is that students would gather information about a particular non- fiction topic by watching a documentary. They would then learn about the form of the text and plan their responses thoroughly. They would then learn a new skill and use this to complete some extended writing, before proofreading and editing their work. As a result, for some texts, they will be planning and writing over multiple lessons to really give them the chance to develop and hone their non-fiction writing skills. Please Note: The longer documentaries are available on Netflix; however, I have also provided alternatives on YouTube for teachers that do not have access to a Netflix account. Areas covered: Lesson 1: Baseline assessment on tackling climate change Lesson 2: Editing letters on education Lesson 3: Exciting introductions on filters Lesson 4: Writing leaflets on homelessness Lesson 5: Watching the world water crisis documentary Lesson 6: Planning, introductions and speech features Lesson 7: Writing a speech on the world water crisis Lesson 8: Headlines and newspaper features Lesson 9: Watching the fast food documentary Lesson 10: Discourse markers and planning articles Lesson 11: Writing an article on fast food Lesson 12: Midterm assessment on fast fashion Lesson 13: Watching the gender pay gap documentary Lesson 14: Structural features and letter planning Lesson 15: Writing a letter on the gender pay gap Lesson 16: Midterm assessment feedback Lesson 17: Watching the plastics documentary Lesson 18: Persuasive methods and planning texts Lesson 19: Writing the KS3 non-fiction writing end of unit assessment Lesson 20: Writing leaflets on our planet Extra: Three cover lessons Both the scheme and the resource booklet and provided in PPT and PDF formats.
