Thank you I think it will be really good to teach this as a casual lesson for year 6 as well. Great resource. would be great to team it up with the you tube video about all the popular Shakespearean quotes.
Bring poetry to life. <br />
A complete unit of work to introduce KS3 students to a wide range of great poetry, from dub poetry performance to Shakespeare's sonnets. <br />
See the plan here to get an overview of the unit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-poetry-whole-complete-scheme-unit-of-work-11173132<br />
Each lesson has a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying worksheet. Included are lesson objectives, pre-starters, starters, learning activities, application of learning, and plenaries. Differentiation and extension are included where appropriate.<br />
Lessons are designed to generate lots of thinking and discussion. Some have carefully structured group work, some ask students to perform, some are based on images from art - each lesson is different and engaging. Students learn as much from writing their own poems as from analysing poems in detail.<br />
Also featured are materials to help students achieve their best in an extended essay, which would form a natural assessment activity.<br />
Most importantly, everything is easily editable, so you can make it your own. It is complete as it is, but each teacher is different, so it can be used as a foundation for your own planning.
Deep marking a piece of work for 30 pupils can be a time-consuming process. Especially if you have a heavy KS3 English timetable and have 90 year 7 books to deep mark by Monday morning. ( 3 hours per set!): Often a 'marking conversation' in pupils' books mean you write the same 'next steps' comments because you were assessing a particular writing or reading technique. These stickers mean you have a bank of relevant 'next steps' comments that can be printed on standard address labels by reprographics to give you some of your precious time back. (Or they can be cut out and glued into books). 18 different detailed comments for writing and 13 for reading. They fit directly with the APP reading and writing assessment grids for English. in PDF and Word format.
45 huge full colour images, 45 student friendly plot ideas and a vast set of resources and teaching ideas for:<br />
- story openings<br />
- how to create mood and atmosphere<br />
- weather in literature<br />
- famous characters from literature<br />
- how to build tension<br />
- vary sentences for effect<br />
- shift point of view and verb tense<br />
- three top grade GCSE sample stories in different genres, tenses and themes<br />
- words and phrases to use and more.<br />
This vast set of resources is scaffolded and differentiated, so you could use with able year 7s, weak GCSE entrants as well as the most able.<br />
This scheme makes links to common poems and literature and will prepare students for controlled assessment, coursework as well as build lasting skills for exam in 2017 and beyond.
Additional Chemistry AQA - Keyword and definition bingo.<br />
This contains a set of questions and a pack of pre-made cards. This can be used as a starter, plenary or revision activity.<br />
This covers all of the key concepts in the unit. Other bingo games are available for the other units too.
Covers the main topic areas and keywords from the AQA specification. <br />
This can be used as a whole class activity or these can be printed as double-sided cards for students to use in small groups. The aim of the task is to select the question that the least people got right when asked the same question. Who therefore can get the lowest score is the winner. There are a few pointless answers in there too. <br />
Great for challenge and to really extend the most able while also supports other students with reinforcing keywords.<br />
3 different keyword and definition spinners. <br />
These are printed out and then cut out. The windows on the top sheet are cut out to reveal the word and its definition below. These work best if the two sheets are secured with a pin. <br />
This is great for keyword revision and for students working in groups testing each other. <br />
These are available for biology, chemistry and physics units.<br />
Revision quiz for paper 2 of the Additional Science AQA specification. <br />
39 questions.<br />
Can be completed as a revision exercise. (B2,C2 &P2)<br />
This is a mixture of multiple choice and open ended questions. Pupils can hold up cards or whiteboards to indicate answers. You can then see where the issues are.
Materials required: Long string, pegs and print all three documents out.
Personailse the first document to your class.
Step 1: Put a string across the room
Step 2: Start by asking th epupils where impossible and certain cards go on the string then the even chance one.
Step 3: Give each pair a card and ask them to decide where it goes on the string.
Step 4: get pupils to stand up and put the card on the string.
Step 5: Let pupils discuss and rearrange
I've adapted this from a powerpoint using freeze frames from &'The Simpson&';s' version of Macbeth which aired in September (this was kindly provided by another TES user). I laminated this and had students work in pairs. They used this in conjunction with the card sort activity to place a card over the frame which contained that particular feature. At the end of the activity students should conclude that this is a tragedy and be able to identify the elements that make it so.
Lesson with Powerpoint looking at Shakespeare's insults. To take the fear out of the language, students practise delivering the insults to one another. I created the Elizabethan insults dictionary to help students decode the meanings and then create their own Elizabethan insults.
This poetry resource examines Salome by Carol Ann Duffy. It contains a worksheet activity, a psychiatric evaluation of Salome useful in exploring the poems persona. The second resource is a powerpoint presentation, the starter exercise, showing quotes about women which, bar one, emphasise women as frail and passive. Spot the odd one out. Discussion: how society views women and violence. Slides show female serial killers: some women are capable of extreme violence.
Full lesson! Starter activity with Elizabethan pronouns, a worksheet with matching phrases to their modern meanings and a glossary of Elizabethan vocabulary. This builds towards an activity where students create their own brief drama script using Elizabethan language.
100 Book Projects and Activities you can have your students do to accompany the books they have read and to foster a love of reading. A list of ideas to get you started on having a fun year sharing about fiction and nonfiction books.
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.
Use these quotation cards to play a range of games to help students quickly learn quotations from the play in an engaging way. See preview for details.
