This stimulating and informative lesson develops students’ skill in creating non-chronological reports that precisely meet the content, language and structural features of the form. In particular, they gain an in-depth understanding of how non-chronological reports are ordinarily set out on the page, what information should be included within them, and what style they should be written in, in order to meet form and purpose. These resources contain 3 example non-chronological reports, differentiated by the accessibility of their language.
Students follow a clear and logical learning journey, in which they:
-Define what non-chronological letters are and clarify their purpose;
- Establish the structural features of non-chronological letters;
-Work collaboratively to identify and analyse the content and language features in further model examples of non-chronological reports;
-Create a success criteria for effective non-chronological reports;
-Write their own non-chronological reports, using a planning sheet (if needed) and the techniques that they have learnt;
-Peer/self-assess their writing attempts.
There are enough resources here really for two lessons, including:
-Visually engaging whole-lesson PowerPoint;
-Non-chronological reports x 3 (based on tennis, great white sharks, and Dubai)
-Non-chronological reports structure worksheet;
-Non chronological reports planning sheet;
