KS3, KS4, structure, close reading, "The Damned United", analysis.

I created this for a year nine literacy group as part of a scheme of work to introduce and embed the skills that they will need for AQA GCSE English Language. It focuses on the opening extract of David Peace's "The Damned United" and the main focus for the analysis is on the structural features of repetition and contrast. The lesson concludes with a grid for the pupils to complete - just to help them to structure their answer. This grid won't be necessary for students who have already done some work on structure but it is a useful way in if this is an early lesson on the skill. The ppt is very plan and unadorned so that it will be easy for you to edit and tweak to suit the needs of your own class. The ppt mentions showing the class the opening of the film - the link is not on the ppt but the link to the clip is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeNG-cj52rg (It's a montage of Leeds in their 70's glory days).

Holiday writing project with frames

Holiday writing project with frames

This is a diary template to encourage EAL / ESL students to continue their writing development over holiday periods, when a long recess can result in a plateauing of progress. Although 60 pages long, the resource can be printed in booklet form, which requires only 15 sheets of A4 paper. It suggests topics for extended writing based on personal experiences likely to be had over a break from school. It also includes a section where students can write brief notes about what they do each day, to be used as reminders for when they write their longer pieces later on. It could be suggested to students that they make sketches or add photos from their phones/cameras to illustrate their experiences. Another use for the booklet could be to invent some entertaining entries on those topics not personally experienced, possibly using imagined characters and/or a downloaded photo as a stimulus. At the back of the diary, each topic for extended pieces of writing has suggestions for content and most have scaffolds/writing frames with sentence starters and simple structures that students are most likely to need. Not all topics have to be attempted; a wide range has been included to make it more likely that students will be able to do a reasonable number of more extended pieces in addition to their daily notes. They are divided into 3 sections: - 5 topics to write about before the holiday starts - 25 topics to write about during the holidays - 5 topics that encourage reflection (at the end of the holidays) There is also space for writers to create their own topics. The diary may also be useful for other writers who need help with structure and ideas before they can begin to craft texts- reluctant writers and students with SEN, for example.
