Zimbabwe after Mugabe

Zimbabwe after Mugabe

Today, let’s talk about Zimbabwe. It’s a country in southern Africa. For the last 37 years Zimbabwe has been led by President Robert Mugabe. On Tuesday, 93 year old Mugabe finally resigned, bringing an end to his ruthless rule. Following the news, there was wild jubilation on the streets of Harare, the county’s capital. Zimbabweans could hardly believe that finally they were free from the man that the majority of people in the country detested. Mugabe only resigned because he was about to be impeached. Two days earlier he was thrown out of the ruling party ZANU-PF and dismissed as its leader. His wife Grace Mugabe was also expelled from the party and is facing prosecution.

KS4, GCSE, Shakespeare, "Romeo and Juliet", entire teaching sequence, 27 planned teaching hours

KS4, GCSE, Shakespeare, "Romeo and Juliet", entire teaching sequence, 27 planned teaching hours

This is my SOW on "Romeo and Juliet". It is intended that the teaching sequence will begin with your showing, in its entirety, a film version of the play. The powerpoints here comprise at least 27 teaching hours (one or two of the ppts, though planned for an hour's lesson, were extended over two) and cover every scene of the play, though not every word. The lessons are numbered as part of the ppt names, though they have not uploaded in the correct order - sorry about this! I planned this for a mixed-ability class though without any high flyers (the top target in the group is a six; overall, targets range from 3 to 6). The lessons use recapping and hinge questions and try to ensure that each scene is seen as part of the whole text. You'll notice there are some multiple-choice, hinge questions. In my classroom, the children create the letters, YMCA-style, but you can elicit their ideas in your own way! The ppts are intentionally plain so that they're easily editable for differentiation up and down. Some of the ppts mention multiple-choice quizzes for homework. These will be available separately when I've uploaded them (hopefully before Christmas).

I created this presentation to support our class guided reading sessions for Michael Morpurgo's interpretation of Beowulf. The tasks are suited to a more able y4/5 class and only cover chapter 1. I hope you find this resource useful, please let me know what you think. Enjoy :)
