FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH - hair and beauty embedded E3 / L1 workpack

FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH - hair and beauty embedded E3 / L1 workpack

Having taught Functional Skills English within an FE setting, I understand how difficult it can be to reach students within a curriculum area and to encourage engagement with English. Often not being specialists in those areas ourselves as English Teachers, embedding can be a challenge. My largest challenge was often with students of hair and beauty and so I devised this work pack which worked fantastically well. This pack embeds E3 and L1 English elements into areas of hair and beauty such as face shapes, hair disasters and nail art, incorporating celebrity culture. This pack builds as you move through it, looking at areas such as reading for information, proofreading, identifying correct homophones and descriptive / persuasive writing. I found with my groups that this did not need to be a taught session but rather they ran with it themselves and engaged independently with it, leaving me to act in a supportive role rather than a lead delivery role. This is down to the group and paired activities within the pack, discussion topics and the options for students to make choices and to design their own nail art. This pack encourages a positive attitude towards English and helps students to see how it can help in their chosen industry. IHope it helps.

Coach Carter - Film Workbook Booklet - Scaffolded Differentiated

Coach Carter - Film Workbook Booklet - Scaffolded Differentiated

This film has inspired many students and is a regular at schools everywhere as it contains fantastic themes of social and racial prejudice, sportsmanship, teenage pregnancy, commitment and respect. I wanted to make watching this film more educational for my students so I have developed a 10-page printable booklet to complete while watching the film. Ready to print and distribute. No more work needed!! It is a highly visual activity with screenshots from the film to help students identify where they are up to, and what is happening. More importantly, I have tried to connect this true story to students own lives with some moral questions as well. There is some vocabulary, creative writing and inference tasks included. There are a couple of low ability options for students who may have intellectual delays so that they may still complete this task and be involved. This task can be completed in one sitting or spread out over several lessons. I have used it both ways and they have worked very well.
