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.

Play Script Lesson Starter

Play Script Lesson Starter

I created this resource as a starter for a lesson on writing play scripts. I wanted children to recap what they already knew about the layout and punctuation of play scripts. Each page of this document was used for a different table group. I cut out the individual words and punctuation marks then provided them to the children in envelopes. They had to work in groups to order the words and punctuation so that they made sense as part of a play script. The children enjoyed this fun starter and it was also a good opportunity for me to assess their prior knowledge and understanding.

Literature Paper 1 Revision Bundle: Prepare your students for 22nd May 2018 and save 20%!

Literature Paper 1 Revision Bundle: Prepare your students for 22nd May 2018 and save 20%!

The three month countdown to Literature Paper 1 is upon us! It’s time to help students refresh and revise which is why I’ve decided to create this bundle including one of my Macbeth lessons and one of my Jekyll and Hyde lessons, both of which focus on helping students plan effectively to tackle the Paper 1 extract questions. Also included is a Macbeth revision guide designed to help students know what and how to revise the Shakespeare section of the exam, which many students find to be the trickiest across the two Literature papers.
