A Monster Calls - Reading & Writing Pack - Analysis, Appraisals, Activities

This resource includes a wide array of activities related to the novel. All tasks are scaffolded and differentiated, allowing students to be stretched and challenged through developing their analytical skills.

I originally used this pack as an extension/homework resource for Key Stage 3; to consolidate and cement their in-class study of the text. However, this would work very well as a workshop resource or a skeletal scheme of learning. With over 30 pages of activities, this workpack ensures students document their reading and push themselves towards developing higher-order thinking.

Students responded very well to these activities; they especially liked how all their work was consolidated through an essay and, as they found, the process of this was facilitated through all their hard-work prior to the essay.

When pricing this, I wanted it to be accessible to all whilst valuing the time I put into its creation.

I really hope you enjoy this, it has been an excellent resource for me,

I would love to hear your feedback!

Happy teaching and learning!

Mr. Key
