An hour long lesson for GCSE (KS4) students on A Christmas Carol. <br />
English Literature focus - based on the current 2015-2017 AQA specification. <br />
The lesson explores the concept of Materialism and Commercialism and uses students own ideas as the basis of understanding the message of Charles Dickens. <br />
It includes links to yo-utube clips, dialogic and active learning based activities, and is also designed to appeal to visual learners, <br />
Keywords are signalled and defined throughout. Worked successfully with Mid to High Ability students.
<p>Michael Rosen visits the home of Charles Dickens. Now a museum, Michael looks at how the house could have inspired characters from Dickens’ Christmas classic A Christmas Carol and views memorabilia from the time it was written. The programme will give students and teachers an insight into how Dickens helped shape the Christmas we know today, as well as being a way to inject a bit of Christmas spirit in the classroom.</p>
These are all my resources for teaching the play version of Curious Incident, for the new AQA GCSE Literature spec. The resources are numbered from 1-21 to be used in order. There are a mixture of resources, mostly in the structure of a powerpoint that should take 2-3 lessons depending on class to cover content and analysis, and then an activity worksheet to work through skills or refresh knowledge. There is also a themes pack where students can record links to various themes, and a list of potential subjects for exam questions. All powerpoints and tasks are differentiated, with extension work and scaffolded work. There are also 2 exam papers to be taken as progress tests, one in the middle of the content and one at the end.
This is the 120 page booklet that I have made for my A Level Literature students for working on the Ted Hughes, Birthday Letters collection. The booklet can be used for the students to work through independently in order to study the entire collection, or to base teacher led lessons around for the entire collection.
This is a worksheet for students to work through once they have watched/read to the end of the play from around p75. There are 2-3 activities, depending on the level the student is working at. Activities are differentiated, self-explanatory and allow students to work independently through them.
<p>A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG).

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library. <br />
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
Resources to introduce dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature conventions to AS students, but also suitable for GCSE or KS3 students.
