A useful resource which focuses upon the issues raised within Othello. Students could use this resource to build upon other themes raised within the play including the duping of Othello by Iago and any possible motives Iago may have.
A selection of differentiated worksheets and teaching resources for Othello by William Shakespeare. Included in this pack are annotated scenes, introductory worksheets, resources to do with plot, and much more.
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!
A range of lessons, tutorials and activities. Please take and adapt for your own purposes. The 'contextual' work focuses on the difference between Victorian and modern values, and the 'Eel Marsh House' work focuses on moving from Dickens
It's often time consuming to edit Shakespeare's plays to a manageable script for KS2/KS3 pupils. Macbeth is particularly tricky to edit down. I've done the work for you in this 5 act edit that will run to about an hour - 1 hour 15 minutes with physical theatre/ensemble work thrown in.
It's a fast-paced professionally set out script with room for you to annotate with Sound/Lighting/Video etc. Delivered in a totally editable word document. Stage directions have also been included.
Two versions of an excel spreadsheet to track students' performance in the new AQA English Language and Literature courses. The spreadsheet converts the raw mark for a particular exam component e.g. English Language, Paper 1 Section A to a 1-9 grade.
Version 1 - links to the long term plan available to purchase in our shop.
Version 2 - a more generic spreadsheet with all of the different exam components for both courses visible.
Both versions can be easily adapted to suit your own long term plans and simply require you to enter your class lists and student information.
DISCLAIMER: AQA have not released official raw mark to grade conversions yet and will not do so until after the first exams in 2017. I have calculated the 1-9 grade conversions using legacy AQA grade boundaries. This is what I am currently using in school to track my students' performance to give some indication as to where students are working at.
Here are useful posters for the NEW AQA Language and Literature GCSE.
A4 Assessment Objectives for both Language and Literature (colour coded)
Map Overviews for both Language and Literature (colour coded) - I recommend printed in A3 for the classroom and perhaps A4 for GCSE students.
I find the Map Overview for Language particularly useful for when students ask, "wait, what are the differences between Paper 1 and Paper 2?"
