I created this for my year 11 low ability group. The first ten questions are to give students confidence - important for those with poor reading skills - and can mostly be done independently or in pairs. The five questions following on are more focused on examination skills and can be done in stages. I hope they help :)
As an end of the year activity, students will re-live his/ her school year and use writing skills taught throughout the year to complete pages of the memory book. This is a great substitution for students not purchasing a year book.
Students will use note taking skills to paraphrase notes on third-person-point-of-view. Notes will provide and promote better writing when writing various text, constructed responses, and extended responses. Notes are excellent for understand which point of view a piece of text is written from, and changing a point of view when writing.
