Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears

Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears

A worksheet to study the song which can conclude a series of lessons on Ireland. It glimpses at the story of Annie Moore, Ellis Island, the American Dream and hints at the potato famine. The first part is a written expression: with the help of pictures from the video, students have to write a short narrative (some clues are provided) to prepare the second part. The second part is a task of listening comprehension which helps students understand the reasons for the massive emigration of Irish people to the USA during the nineteenth century.

This bundle contains 13 full lessons covering questions 3 - 5 from paper 2 of the AQA 8700 spec. The total of all 13 lessons individually is £42 but I’m willing to sell them for £20 giving you a saving of 52%. What will you get in this bundle? Lessons come with a range of activities and supportive material. I teach 3 hour sessions therefore each full lesson contains enough material to span 3 hours. These include videos, speaking and listening activities, various worksheets and independent writing tasks. There is also a paper 2 mock paper included in this pack based around War Speeches. My classes are of mixed abilities so the lessons are differentiated to cater to mixed cohorts. There are 2 / 3 lessons per question. Style of lessons I like to teach using cultural pop references to help engage my students and underpin the skills needed in order to pass the exam. I enjoy having a fast pace in my class and so stagger the activities from 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 30 mins. I usually start with a group task as a starter and a long independent writing task, based from the exam, as the final task and a short self assessment or peers assessment plenary. My topics in this bundle range from light hearted topics such as the music of Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin, Dicaprio vrs Kanye - a top seller , to lesson which underpin more serious social issues and British values such as the UK pet trade in Monkeys and Sophie Lancaster story.

AQA GCSE English Paper 2 Question 4 - Immigration and refugees

AQA GCSE English Paper 2 Question 4 - Immigration and refugees

This resource is an entire lesson with enough material to fill up a 3 hour session or 2 smaller sessions. The session aim to help students practice their skills for paper 2 question 4, the comparison between a modern and older text on the same theme / topic. The topic of this session is immigration and looks at the immigration of Irish people to America and modern day Syrian refugees and underpins the idea of equality and compassion. Comparison materials are a letter written in 1884 and a poem written in 2017. I have found that in a world of fake news, memes and multicultural classrooms that students are very interested in these topics as they are often unsure of today's world and it's politics. This is a lesson which is designed to let the students do most of the thinking and analysing and is a perfect session to deliver as exam dates become nearer and they need to become more independent in delivering answers and insight. There are plenty of short timed paired and team activities which build up students knowledge and insight and ends with a chance to deliver a exam style answer and a short self assessment. Worksheets come with support material to help those who struggle and open questions to push those who are more capable. Please keep in mind that at times the TES preview somehow distorts slides and worksheets and that is not reflective of how the resource will look when downloaded. Hope it helps.
