The New Pupil: Short Story and Imaginative Writing Unit

The New Pupil: Short Story and Imaginative Writing Unit

This unit of work comprises of a short story about a new pupil coming to school who is considered different by the others. This should lead to some discussion about what makes people considered different. The pupil is bullied throughout the day, with the bullying getting progressively worse. The reader learns the bullies own life issues. The story teaches an important moral message and leads to many possible discussions. Many of these are introduced in a worksheet asking the pupil to note their thoughts on the story in detail, with many questions and discussion points raised. The unit then becomes an imaginative writing unit. Various elements of the short story are used as a springboard for the pupils to plan then write their own story about a new pupil coming to a school and being considered different. The unit could be used as part of an English course and should last for a half term if taught once a week. It could be used in late Primary School or early Secondary School. It is also a very good unit to teach to older SEN pupils.

RENE MAGRITTE - SURREALIST ARTIST - COMPLETE UNIT OF WORK

RENE MAGRITTE - SURREALIST ARTIST - COMPLETE UNIT OF WORK

This complete unit of work explores the life and work of Rene Magritte; a Belgium born Surrealist painter. As the pupils examine a range of his work they will learn more about the Surrealist movement. To further deepen their learning pupils are expected to respond on a personal level to his work using the vocabulary of the visual arts to express their observations. During the practical response, pupils will develop their artistic skills and processes using a variety of media to communicate meaning and intent. The unit of work contains an illustrated Power point presentation that is useful for whole class discussions relating to the ideals behind this movement. A chronology of Magritte’s life that includes points of interest to bring greater understanding of the man as an artist. There is also an array of creative tasks that focus on selected works of art for pupils to respond to in their own unique way. This unit of work is easily adapted to suit the needs of individual teachers. It can be covered in-depth over half a term or dipped-into as required. The Surrealist movement originally arose in response to the written word/poetry and as such Magritte’s work is a brilliant way to inspire creative/descriptive writing. The work produced in response to the chosen paintings [art or writing] is always remarkable and as unique as each pupil. All illustrations used have been tagged with Creative Commons licenses.
