A lesson that focuses on the power of language! The starter activity helps to develop pupils' understanding of the treatment of children to add to their contextual knowledge of the novella (A03). The lesson then develops to explore what makes language powerful by exploring an infamous Charlie Chaplin speech before culminating in a persuasive writing activity that draws heavily upon context (A03). My class particularly loved being able to read their persuasive speeches to the class at an old fashioned lectern! This lesson could be extended over two by completing a speaking and listening feedback session on speeches that are shared with the class.
