A complete unit of work on Creative Writing KS3/KS4

A complete unit of work on Creative Writing KS3/KS4

This resource includes tasks on building and using different sentence structures, how to use more ambitious punctuation, vocabulary choices, writing devices: figurative language, opening sentences, show don't tell and the wwwww method of writing construction plus some highly engaging tasks based on the mysterious images left by Harris Burdick. My students loved this unit of work and have continued to produce high quality pieces of writing. My other resource on David Didau's slow writing would work really well as a follow up to this unit.

Target Setting Bundle for ESOL and Entry Level Learners

Target Setting Bundle for ESOL and Entry Level Learners

In this brilliant time saving bundle you get two target banks aimed at ESOL and entry level learners inluding both academic and pastoral targets as well as templates to write out targets and review them. These are resources I've tried and tested over my teaching career. Target setting can be long and arduous and is hard work with second language learners. These target resources take the strain out of target setting allowing learners to choose their own relevant targets from a set of common areas to improve. These are commended targets that have been tried and tested in an FE environment. This bundle provides the perfect basis for a tutorial lesson on target setting as well as over 20 key targets and over 120 practical actions students can take to achieve their goals.
