KS3 SOW - Analysing Speeches - 19 lessons with ppts, resources, an assessment and homework tasks.
A 19 Lesson SOW that explores both language and structural features in a variety of speeches (given by everyone from Obama to MLK Jr. to Emma Watson to Winston Churchill, to name a few). By the end of this SOW, students should learn to analyse figurative language, analogies, abstract nouns, anecdotes, emphatic colons, single and multi-clause sentences and phrases that signal transitions. There are also some creative writing lessons, where students get a chance to use some of these features in their own writing.

All lessons are designed as 55 minute lessons. The resources are provided as pdfs (because thy print better) and as word documents, so that you can adjust them if necessary.
All slides contain a ridiculous amount of colours and images, in order to make everything accessible for a variety of learners. (I am fairly fanatical about lessons being visually appealing, as well as covering interesting topics.)
There are three homework tasks.
There is a 'Key Vocabulary' sheet with 20 words that students can be tested on.
There is also a lesson map, so you can quickly keep track of which lesson you are on and the main skills that they are working on.

[Enjoy Lesson 11 - My students were completely outraged by the story of Trayvon Martin! It was the lesson that they were still talking about months later.]
