I made these for a low ability Year 8 group based on the play of 'The Demon Headmaster' by Gillian Cross. Unfortunately, I rarely saw this group as it was shared, so the resources are very limited.
A scheme of 6 lessons for the play The Demon Headmaster. Contains a detailed plan, powerpoint, self and peer assessment resources, and homework. Scheme focuses on developing drama and literacy skills, good for weak groups. Copies of the play are needed but the TV series is also available on YouTube which is useful.
In this pack are English Flightpaths for reading and writing using the Eduqas English exam criteria. You will also find the assessment sheets I have created, including cover sheets for assessments in reading, writing and speaking and listening (spoken English) and a criteria sheet for Speaking and Listening.
A resource with a powerpoint lesson presentation that provides various information which may be useful for students revising in preparation for their English GCSE exam on Paper 2. This contains information on how to get a 'C' grade and has used some information from the grade boosters pack.
It's often time consuming to edit Shakespeare's plays to a manageable script for KS2/KS3 pupils. Othello 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.
