https://youtu.be/DBLgp1qTCTgA video &transcript attached for David Letterman's first appearance after 9/11 & delivers an emotional speech. Description from the New York Times below:"Eloquent,” “quirky,” “bewildered” & “inspiring” are words rarely combined to describe a single speech, but Letterman’s heartfelt &apparently improvised remarks after the terrorist attacks were all those things, and more. At the helm of the first late-night show after 9/11, Letterman expressed his own sadness — & the nation’s — with perfect plainness. That “religious fervour” was the cause of the attacks, Dave pointed out, “makes no goddamn sense.” But his admiration & gratitude for police & firefighters, & to the city of New York, was a universally shared and uplifting sentiment.Used in the Spoken Language unit to compare video clips (I used a more 'typical' Letterman clip with Julia Roberts on his show) but could be used for many things
GCSE English Language Spoken Language Endorsement.
This unit of work (76 pages on PowerPoint) will prepare students for a spoken presentation on a specific topic using the prompt, ‘If I Ruled The World...’ Pupils are required to then choose their specific focus, which should be a topical issue (see guidance from board).
This series of lessons guides them through a detailed planning, preparation, and editing process. It contains assessment guidance, peer assessment guidance, embedded examples of various speeches.
All accompanying resources are visual on the PowerPoint, and can be adapted to suit the needs of your group.
This is a fun lesson for low ability. Includes a PPT. Aussie-English dictionary sheet and a blank game sheet.\n\nPupils to complete the blank dictionary sheet in teams (A3). The dictionary sheets are A3 and displayed outside the room in the corridor. Only 1 team member can leave the room at a time. Everyone in the team must go out at least once(rules on PTT.). Pupils then asked to write their top ten Aussie-English words down.\n\nFun lesson for challenging pupils or for last period of the day when pupils are getting restless.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.

This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
