Rhetorical devices for A Level Language

Rhetorical devices for A Level Language

A quick pupil-friendly glossary (with examples) of new key terms for rhetorical devices for A Level English Language pupils. Handy to use when introducing new terms as you look at rhetoric and speeches or political speaking. We used them as a checklist for looking at interviews between Russell Brand and Ed Miliband, and one between Jonathan Ross and Keira Knightley and then discussed how these techniques can tie in with wider issues on the course: e.g. gender, power, class.

Listening Comprehension - 13 Reasons Why (episode 5)

Listening Comprehension - 13 Reasons Why (episode 5)

*** answer key includedThis is a listening comprehension for the 5th episode of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. Formatting and the answer key will make your life easier. Simply print and make copies. I also included a writing journal (opinion question related to the episode watched), which can be completed at school or as homework.This series is excellent, and I would even dare to say better than the book as I find the characters better developed. Even though, like the book, the TV series discusses suicide, the TV series allows for additional discussions as each episode adds characters and therefore secondary storylines. This is a wonderful TV show to get the students to discuss issues related to their everyday life such as peer pressure, family unit, friendship, ... Plus, it raises awareness.I have created listening comprehensions for other episodes of the series. The difficulty level of listening comprehension progresses as the series advances. It is therefore perfect to assess the progression of a student's learning. Notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners:* Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning.* According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material.* If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time.* If there is a possibility, try to have each student watch and answer the listening comprehension individually. Provide them with a time frame as to when they must have completed the evaluation and returned it to the teacher. This way you are certain to evaluate their listening skills and not their abilities to listen and write all at once. It also helps students with learning difficulties.

IB PYP Bulletin Board Signs for IB Attitudes

IB PYP Bulletin Board Signs for IB Attitudes

These cute and colourful signs for the IB PYP bulletin board are great to use as a way to introduce the brand new unit of inquiry or to use as labels for displaying the children’s work on the walls. It offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to think critically and apply their knowledge of the language of the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme, when the students are involved in the layout and creation of your class bulletin board and inquiry wall. The signs are designed as arrows for pointing to the specific sections of each inquiry and highlighting the theme, IB attitudes, lines of inquiry and the central idea being covered within each unit of inquiry. Great for the end of the unit too, when the children use the signs to help them with their reflection process for their portfolios and for those kiddos embarking upon the IB exhibition. Spelling caters for UK and USA. Simply copy, laminate and cut. This complete kit includes signs for:ThemeCentral IdeaLines of InquiryOur inquiriesIB Attitudes ( large and small) You can find many more inquiry based learning tools and ideas in my store and on my blog, including a complete bulletin boar kit with ALL of the IB PYP tools: key concepts, Learner Profile, IB Attitudes and the Skills. Enjoy! Susan Powerswww.PYPteachingtools.com
