Introductory unit for Year 7 lesson 3: Reading Skills

This is the third lesson of a series of lessons to teach to Year 7 in their first couple of weeks in secondary school. It allows the teacher to assess the students on speaking and listening, reading and writing and also get to know them on a personal level.

The students also enjoy the lessons as well as learning/developing their skills and getting to know each other.

The lessons can be purchased individually or in a bundle.

This lesson involves reading and writing skills with a focus on selection and retrieval of information from an extract of an autobiography. The students also identify figurative language and any other devices used to create an image of the characters in the extract.

More able students can be challenged with personification, hyperbole, oxymoron etc which are in the extract.
