Frankenstein Graphic Novel Study

This resource is designed to be used during Reading Workshop and is to be used with Frankenstein by Gris Grimly. About the Graphic Novel: Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein is a twisted, fresh, and utterly original** full-length, full-color graphic-novel adaptation of Mary Shelley’s original text, brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Gris Grimly**. The first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text, this handsome volume is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well. New York Times bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and stitched Mary Shelley’s text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix, both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heart-stopping and heartbreaking.

Helga Weiss: Survivor of the Holocaust (Cloze and Context Clue Activity)

Helga Weiss: Survivor of the Holocaust (Cloze and Context Clue Activity)

Context Clues and Word Elimination (Cloze Method) strategies have been proven to enhance the comprehension of higher level texts. Due to this finding, I have used these methods with my middle school students. First, I copied and pasted the entire article, *The Road to the Nuremberg Trials*, onto a Google Doc. Then, I chunked each paragraph or separate passage within the text. Secondly, I placed engaging visuals that directly aligned with the text within the text. Thirdly, I read through the passages again to denote Tier 2 and 3 terms that I knew that my students may not know and eliminated them. I placed a line or blank line in its place. I checked to ensure that there were definitive words/phrases around the missing word that could verify or prove the term's meaning within its context. Fourthly, I created multiple choice terms: Three (3) are icorrect and one (1) was the missing term. Fifth, I added an EXPLANATION box where the students are to explain why their answer choice was correct using EVIDENCE from the text. ** NOTE: During the process, the students must go through the following steps: Read the passage. Read the terms. Think about what word would LOGICALLY fit in the missing blank based upon the sentences and terms within the text. Indicate your word choice. Turn and Talk with your group members to explain your thinking. Explain your findings in COMPLETE SENTENCES using EVIDENCE FROM the TEXT to JUSTIFY your answer choice. ** This process is first scaffolded by me using Think-Alouds and annotations several times as I gradually release the level of responsibilityy to the students. **Activity Key** For demonstration purposes, I have included a key for the activity. The responses are based on the proficient and advanced levels (3 and 4). Please feel free to modify it as you deem necessary. Image Source: https://goo.gl/XrzuKk Enjoy!!

Fashion Magazine - A resource to use for a variety of English topics

Fashion Magazine - A resource to use for a variety of English topics

A fully interactive e-magazine designed using online software Joomag. I designed it for use with students studying English GCSE and Functional Skills who are examining: text features, presentation devices, language devices and persuasive techniques. Throughout the publication, I have incorporated issues pertaining to Equality and Diversity in the fashion industry, which can serve as an interesting point for discussion. The fact that the magazine is female orientated can also be linked to issues regarding gender. I have attached a copy of the PDF version which has QR codes embedded so that you can access the attached videos relating to the section you are viewing. You can print copies of this files. The front cover has a QR code which takes you to the online version of the magazine. The attached video introduces you to some of the interactive features throughout the magazine. I hope you find the resource very useful; please leave feedback as I value your opinions.

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).
