This resource is fabulous - thank you. I am supporting a home-schooled student through this unit, so this is an excellent time saver and valuable guide. We appreciated the wider reading suggestions in particular. Much appreciated.
Used to familiarise students with the band criteria for the exam component of Spec A. How to use:
KEY WORDS & PICTURES (PP): Photocopy back to back and cut out, ensuring the corresponding images and key words are on either side of a card. In groups, students identify the key words for each corresponding image.
REVERSE PLANNING AND ANALYSIS (Word doc): Students‘reverse plan’ a response: looking at how the response was structured. Then, they go through the response thoroughly, finding, highlighting and labelling key elements of a good response.
Chart the progression and development of plot, theme, or character thoughts, feelings and motivations with these handy templates.
2 blank templates provide freedom for plotting story structure (rising and falling action), or creating your own chart to follow a particular theme or characters.
There are 3 examples, using the dramatic structure of Conan Doyle's short story "A Scandal in Bohemia", A love, attraction and regrets chart for Dickens's "Great Expectations" and a moral integrity and principles chart for Payne's "No Man's Land".
Useful for all text types, from short story, novels, plays or even epic poetry.
