Introduction to the Detective Fiction Genre

Introduction to the Detective Fiction Genre

This lesson introduces KS3 students to the conventions of the Detective Genre using short film clips and a fun game. This works really well as either the first lesson of a topic on this genre or as a transition day activity as the students will enjoy the lesson and be left feeling that studying English is not always reading and writing.

Introduction to Books and Reading Bundle (ESOL)

Introduction to Books and Reading Bundle (ESOL)

This is the perfect bundle to introduce the library at your school or college and encourage learners to start reading on a regular basis. These resources allow learners to identify the English terms for different parts of books, get to know their school/college/local library and then set about a regular reading habit recording their reading and reviewing what they read. Designed for ESOL learners this is a resource I use every year to ensure learners get into the habit of reading in English in order to progress their language skills.
