KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET] - High Quality - Philosophy Boxes Method - P4C - SMSC: Body Changes, Growing Up, Puberty, Community, Citizenship, Conflict Mediation & Resolution, Differences & Similarities, E-Safety & Cyberbullying, emotional wellbeing and mental health, family, friends, financial awareness and managing money, jobs, cereers, healthy living, harmful substances, moral and spiritual development (SMSC) identity and awarenss [A P4C Debates & Discussion approach to KS1/KS2 PSHE]

The download comprises 20 X PSHE lessons/sessions that can be used multiple times with the same group. The method uses a selection of debate and discussion activities to explore PSHE issues for KS1 and KS2 students. This download is designed to be a significant component of any primary school's PSHE provision. A demo of the method can be found here: https://goo.gl/DrcSqv [though the content is not relevant to PSHE, it shows how the approach works] The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues. The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats]. The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes. The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity. The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227 A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86 This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]

Super Duper Mega Political Rheoric Bundle. A close look at three political speeches.

Super Duper Mega Political Rheoric Bundle. A close look at three political speeches.

A half term's worth of lessons for a two/three hour-per-week class. Three sets of PowerPoints, annotated examples, models and success criteria. My suggested route through teaching: - Trump on immigration (Lesson 1 - Annotate, Lesson 2 - Essay plan, Lesson 3/4 - Essay) - Nicola Sturgeon on the referendum (Lesson 1 - Annotate, Lesson 2 - Essay plan, Lesson 3/4 - Essay) - Emma Watson on gender equality (Lesson 1 - Annotate, Lesson 2 - Essay plan, Lesson 3/4 - Essay) Once those 12 lessons are over, students can be assessed on their writing by creating a speech using some of the language techniques they have studied. Options I gave: - Feminism/Gender Equality - In/Out Europe - Referendum - Banning Trump from the UK All three lessons are really well themed and some include video resources too! They look at a whole range of language features, techniques and stylistic devices that are unique to each speaker. All come with fully annotated speeches, examples of essay paragraphs and clear success criteria for students to follow.

An analysis of the language used in Trump's immigration speech - Language features: Argue/Persuade

An analysis of the language used in Trump's immigration speech - Language features: Argue/Persuade

* students absolutely loved these lessons! If you're looking for something to engage students - this is the download for you! *A great, ready to go resource! No planning required. This resource was fantastic with both my year 9 and GCSE classes (differentiated for each). It outlines the conventions of writing/speaking to argue/persuade, then goes onto discuss some higher order rhetorical devices that Trump employs. There is plenty of differentiated work in the 9-slide PowerPoint, including Argue/Persuade features, as well as flaws in logic. The lesson includes: - An explanation and example of many persuasive/argumentative features such as direct address/hyperbole/triadic structure- An example of four annotated paragraphs from the speech- A student model of a comprehensive paragraph response- Several printable resources from the PowerPoint including a reminder of common techniques and features to argue/persuade- A success criteria for the written response. * New - annotation of the whole speech as a PDF file. There is enough work here for at least two hours; I broke the lessons down into one lesson looking at features and annotating and then the second writing an essay and reviewing the success criteria. All in all, the lesson could probably fill a week's worth of lessons if you do the following: Lesson 1 - annotate the speechLesson 2 - consider the effect and plan the included essayLesson 3 - write the essay. You could then follow it up by asking students to write a speech using the conventions they've covered. If you did this, there would be several weeks' work here. There are printable sheets that make up the slides, such as a model annotation and a model paragraph for students. This is a fab resource and I hope you find it as useful as I did!
