I used this lesson in an interview, so its only about half an hour.
Its focus is on A*-B exam criteria for persuasive writing, but it also includes an activity which asks the kids to identify and explain the effects of persuasive language.
Very squirrel focused.
This is 2 lessons designed to get apathetic students into reading and writing by broadening their horizons a bit. It went down really well with my low ability year 7 group.
Lesson 1 - Comic Books
Lesson 2 - Create your own super hero
This lesson is about the WW1 poem 'Who's for the game?' by Jessie Pope.
It focuses on the persuasive language she employs, including metaphor.
I taught it to a very bright year 8 class (levels 6-8). Should also be suitable for Y9.
This is a play suitable for an end of year production or Year 6 leavers' assembly. It lasts about 30 minutes. It is set in the modern day which makes the story more accessible to the children. It is amusing and appeals to both boys and girls. <br />
There are 24 speaking parts (including 11 narrators which could be condensed into less) and non-speaking parts for the football fans, the rock group, the storm sequence and the underwater sequence.<br />
Music suggestions are made for the various sequences and these can be kept very basic or choreographed as full dances. Costume is left up to you.
Drama Assessment<br />
Use this grid to assess students in drama. Simply write the student’s name in the left-hand column and put a tick or ‘T’ in some of the boxes on the right to indicate whether the drama skill is something they do really well, or something they need to work on. You can write additional comments if you wish.<br />
The idea is that after the drama assessment you can give students praise, their level and their target in an efficient way. All students then need to do is write down their level and target on the blue sheet at the front of their small yellow exercise books.<br />
This grid focuses on nine key skills in drama, including facial expressions, spatial awareness, voice projection etc.<br />
