Something I came up with for speaking and listening assessment. Deliberately a role-play for two as they need to do something substantial for a decent mark. The 'checklist' is for other students in the class to mark the work too - I've found this very useful for AfL. Students quickly catch on to what they need to do to get a decent grade. Watch a couple of chat show interviews first with students if you can as they may not all be familiar with the format!
One worksheet that works for fiction/non-fiction. It shows students the 'steps' in analysing language in a clear way. It moves from literal meaning to connotations and ends with the impact on the reader/audience. A clear framework which can be used to scaffold/support students at various stages of their learning. Can be used for KS3 or 4 and can easily be adapted to the life after levels programme your school uses.
Drama Extension Activities PowerPoint. Includes five extension menu choice boards for differentiating instruction for any drama unit. These were developed originally to be used with the plays "A Christmas Carol" and "The Diary of Anne Frank," but can be used with any play or dramatization. There are extension menus or enrichment activities for author, time period, play comprehension, drama terms and an independent study guide and a menu of reading project ideas for multiple intelligences-auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Also included is an oral presentation rubric and a peer evaluation form. Useful for gifted students who need extra independent work. You will also have a color slide for each menu for projection on a white board and printer friendly student handout. Editable for your own classroom use. Enjoy. - HappyEdugator
A series of lessons covering Shakespeare's Othello. Originally covered with a Year 9 group but can be differentiated accordingly and would work with A Level Students. The resource includes PowerPoint slides, resources and assessment questions.
These are all my resources for teaching the play version of Curious Incident, for the new AQA GCSE Literature spec. The resources are numbered from 1-21 to be used in order. There are a mixture of resources, mostly in the structure of a powerpoint that should take 2-3 lessons depending on class to cover content and analysis, and then an activity worksheet to work through skills or refresh knowledge. There is also a themes pack where students can record links to various themes, and a list of potential subjects for exam questions. All powerpoints and tasks are differentiated, with extension work and scaffolded work. There are also 2 exam papers to be taken as progress tests, one in the middle of the content and one at the end.
