Digital Storytelling - iPad ideas

Digital Storytelling - iPad ideas

This resource is aimed at teachers using iPads with students to provide ideas and inspiration for iPad activities in class. It’s suitable for all levels of digital skill, from new starters to experienced digital leaders. The first page provides information about the teaching concept (storytelling) and ideas for the different forms a digital story can take. The second page gives simple ideas to try out with suggested apps. We’ve linked iOS apps but the ideas are adaptable to non-iOS / BYOD digital classrooms too. We hope you’ll find some iPad teaching & learning inspiration here! About us: we’re developing a classroom app, Sparkjar, for use in iPad schools. We’ve made these free resources because we want to give something back to teachers whilst we raise the profile of Sparkjar. We hope you find them useful as part of your iPad teaching toolkit. There’s a link to our website in the resource - if you want to check us out, please do.

Attack the Block GCSE Film Studies scheme of work

Attack the Block GCSE Film Studies scheme of work

Written by an experienced examiner and consultant, this booklet on Attack the Block, directed by Joe Cornish in 2008, provides a huge range of activities. Some of the work includes: the context of the production of the film, London, social housing, gang culture and the London Riots of 2011. Also includes key facts and information on the making of the film and systems for keeping notes during watching with templates using the Cornell notes system. There are also in-depth details on key scenes, dozens of screenshots from the film as well as images from other relevant areas that have influenced the film. You will also find a range of screenshots and screen grabs from other sci-fi films such as Blade Runner and Aliens. There are also screen shots from British films such as Harry Brown and A Clockwork Orange to aid and support the work on comparing film texts. The booklet also contains dozens of activities for students including mock exam questions, comprehension questions on location, characters and more. PLUS: guidance on how to analyse scenes from the film using hexagaonal learning and summary sheets to help with revision. Key scene analysis include links to the specific scenes or extracts, hosted permanently on YouTube, so you don’t even need a copy of the film to complete some of the tasks-again, perfect for students to complete! Many of the tasks included have also been designed to be peer or self assessed and there is a wide variety of solo work, paired work or group work catered for, with each activity described in detail at the beginning of each task. Your purchase will be for one zip file that contains Microsoft Word and Mac OSX versions so that you can edit and do as you like with, as well as unmarked PDFs ready for printing. This booklet has been written so that it can be used in a variety of ways; print and use as a ready-to-go scheme of work in a booklet. Maybe give to students as a detailed homework that can be completed alongside your own classroom work. It also works great for revision, either with individual task printed or again, as a whole booklet. Try printing individual pages as starters or plenaries, or even using the tasks as engaging resources for lessons built around key ideas of your own. This guide / ebook is designed to help in the delivery of GCSE Film Studies, focusing on Component 2 Global Film. This guide focuses on the key aspects of Film style / aesthetics as well as film language, as per the Eduqas Specification. Many thanks for taking a look and for any future purchases!

Alice In Wonderland Songs

Alice In Wonderland Songs

A collection of songs from the writings of Lewis Carroll - I’ve set all of the ‘Alice’ poems to music in a suitably bizarre way - so let me know if you need one that’s not featured here. These resources would be an excellent part of any work or presentation featuring the "Alice in Wonderland’ or ‘Through The Looking Glass’ stories.

Humpty Dumpty's recitation  from 'Alice'

Humpty Dumpty's recitation from 'Alice'

This is Humpty Dumpty’s recitation set to a rather modern backing style. This would fit in with any module of working involving ‘Alice’ by Lewis Carroll. I’ve set all of the ‘Alice’ poems to music so let me know if there’s anything you are looking for.

The Mock Turtle's Song - The Lobster Quadrille

The Mock Turtle's Song - The Lobster Quadrille

The Mock Turtle’s Song from Alice In Wonderland, set to an unexpected tune - not a quadrille at all - but then the turtle was a mock turtle, so nothing is as expected! It’s a very infectious melody and this piece would fit in with any study or presentation of Lewis Carroll’s work. I’ve set all of his ‘Alice’ poems to music, so if you need anything just ask!

Jabberwocky  Song

Jabberwocky Song

Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky, set to music. Can be used to augment any drama or performing work, or as an introduction to any work on Alice. I’ve set all of Lewis Carroll’s poems to music, in as bizarre a way as possible - if you need music to any of his other work , let me know. It would be a great Performing Arts project for the pupils to devise their own presentation of the stories using the songs as a framework.

PAPER    1, question 2- 5 (AQA GCSE English Language 8700 )

PAPER 1, question 2- 5 (AQA GCSE English Language 8700 )

What is in this bundle? This bundle contains 20 full lessons on powerpoint with supporting worksheets, activities and videos for questions 2 - 5 of the AQA paper 1 exam. It also contains bite sized assessments for some of the tougher questions and independent study material. It contains a wide selection of texts and references from extracts from Divergent, Atonement, Dracula, Orwells 1984, Graham Greenes The Destructors and Stephens Kings The Body (Stand By Me). The total amount of the individual resources combined as a bundle is £53.00 but I’m willing to sell at £20, saving you 62% What type of lessons are they? My style is very much about class participation, student ownership of learning and quick pace. Lessons come with starters, plenaries, paired, group and independent activities which last from 5 /10 / 15 / 20 and 30 mins at a time. I teach 3 hour sessions therefore all lesson have enough material to fill 3 hours. I also like to base parts of my sessions around pop culture and current issues in order to engage students and demonstrate that English is not a subject or skill confined to the classroom but rather it is a life long skill with real relevance in the world. I also like English to have an element of fun and try to encourage students to have fun with language and encourage creativity. Many lessons cover a range of levels as I teach mixed level classes, I use supportive techniques such as sentence starters, word banks and peer assessment and self assessment.
