This Into Film resource uses the films Short Term 12 and Ender's Game as a basis for textual analysis, focusing on camera, mise-en-scène, editing and sound. Suitable for students of film and media studies and moving image arts, these teachers' notes should be used in conjunction with the film clips and stills embedded in the PowerPoint presentation found at https://www.intofilm.org/resources/211.

A printable worksheet handout including a range of tasks for pupil assessment of Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Students choose one task from each of the different strands and have a week to complete each assessment.
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.
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.
6th Grade ELA Common Core Posters- Emoji Print. Includes an individual poster for each standard as well as strand headings.
It is so important for students to see, read and become familiar with the standards they are learning. I display the standard we are working on each day on my white board. I print out all of the standards at the beginning of the year (and laminate them!). I then sort them by strand and hole punch each one. I put them on book rings so that I can easily post them on my board on a magnetic hook
To tackle the lack of enthusiasm about homework in my school I created a Nando's style menu of homework. This one is focused on Arthur Conan Doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles. There are 25 homework tasks already planned, differentiated by 'spice'. Since using these menus, where the students pick for themselves, the amount and quality of homework has improved.
I have compiled together a bank of homework menus for texts that are often studied. This means in one purchase you will get homework menus for:
Romeo and Juliet
A Christmas Carol
The Boy in the Striped Pyjama's
Lord of the Flies
The Creative Writing homework menu
Each of these homework menu's has 25 separate homework tasks that can be completed to assist students with the understanding of the text, and they can each be easily adapted to be easily set cover work for classes.
