This is the 4th 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 follows on from lesson 3 in which the students read a text for meaning and selected figurative devices used to create character. In this lesson, the students plan and begin to write their own autobiographical pieces using the devices they have learned in class.
The more able students should be challenged to use personification, hyperbole and oxymoron which are have also been used in the autobiographical text which was studied in lesson 3.
