This is a series of lessons based on the novel ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas. This scheme was created with mixed ability Year 9s in mind, and would be suited to Year 9 students and above.
Each presentation focuses on one chapter of the novel, with questions, key skills for literature analysis and starters that develop student’s spelling, punctuation and grammar. As this unit is literature focused, the main tasks include: quotation hunts as well as analysis of characters, themes and quotations. There is an mini-assessment opportunity in presentation #3 (exploring how setting is created by Thomas).
There are opportunities for independent, paired and group work embedded in the lesson presentations, as well as research.
Challenge and extension tasks, as well as sentence starters to support weaker students, are included with all activities.
I will be continuing to develop and build this scheme over the coming weeks. Please look out for future lessons, and these will eventually be ‘bundled’ together to cover the entire novel.
