This is a full scheme of work (25lessons) designed for Y9. It has been created with the new 2017 GCSE Literature in mind. <br />
The scheme details activities linked to the main themes and characters in the novel with some power points to support. <br />
There is a lesson by lesson break down, along with ample opportunities for differentiation and stretch and challenge for the more able. Lesson 7 requires the teacher to source the materials linked to context. Other lessons that don't have a power point are either assessment lessons or reading lessons. <br />
This scheme may also be useful for current Y10 studying the novel for GCSE CA and examination.

These are the resources and materials I have used and created when teaching Language and Power at AS level following AQA Specification B.<br />
I began by looking at Spoken Language and how this is different from written, then this nicely 'flows' into discussion of power (through political speeches etc.).<br />
I've tried to include everything possible and I hope it makes sense!
Pretty much a full SOL for a range of short stories. Created for a high level 5 to low level 7 year 9 class.<br />
I'm sorry I can't include copies of the stories referred to - this is for copyright reasons. I've included the first pages of the anthology with contents listed so it is clear what they are.
In this writing lesson, students exercise both their close reading of fiction - learning from published authors - and writing creatively ‘to demonstrate their narrative and descriptive skills in response to a written prompt, scenario or visual image’, which is the requirement for AQA's new English Paper 1 Section B creative writing question.<br /><br /><br />
