Summer Reading Challenge - Library - Reading for Pleasure KS3 and KS4

Summer Reading Challenge - Library - Reading for Pleasure KS3 and KS4

This is a clearly presented, generic reading challenge to ensure your students keep on reading! Sometimes it is easier to make it a fun challenge, especially by something like finding a book to read where the main character is not human. It is one thing to tell children what to read, and this should be avoided, as ownership is key. But it is entirely acceptable to give choices and let children self-select with some guidelines. There are many reading challenges available online, but I wanted to create one which was just clear, and uncluttered, with enough choice to appeal, hopefully, to everyone.

George Orwell's 'Animal Farm': Study Prompts

George Orwell's 'Animal Farm': Study Prompts

This 22-page resource is a set of short writing tasks, and formal essay questions in the style of AP and IB examinations. The initial tasks focus student attention on significant aspects of each chapter, and build up a full understanding of what Orwell is trying to achieve, how he is trying to achieve it, and how successful he has been. The chapter-based questions can, additionally, be used as a basis for class discussion, and the essay topics as an invaluable tool for pre-examination revision and rehearsal. At a time-saving level, teachers will be relieved of the need to develop their own units of study for the novel, and to seek out relevant questions from past examinations. ‘These prompts are a terrific tool for generating class discussions, creating short answer exams, or longer essay assignments. I have purchased a number of them and am impressed with each one’ (from the LitWorks.com Commendations page).
