12 lessons fully resourced with PowerPoints, worksheets and mark schemes.
The 12 lessons consist of formal and informal letters, PACS planning (purpose,audience, content and style) and review writing. The last two lessons of the SOW are more creative and interactive with a group review.
A resource created for my low ability year 11s.
I go through Mametz Wood in some detail, as a revision exercise, as they have annotated and been taught this poem before.
The process of responding is broken down and I have used images to direct students to the 4 most horrific images in the poem.
By scaffolding and modelling the first poem, the second poem is for students to have a go themselves.
It worked really well!
This double sided A3 sheet is based around Macduff's reaction to the murder of his wife and children. There is a literacy homophone starter (your and you're).
An image introduction task
An extract from the play
An example paragraph
Self and Peer assessment.
I have included lined boxes for redrafting their responses as a 'next step'.
This resource was created for my year 11s who have had enough of Macbeth, the last final sprint!
The starter exercise is a range of 8 illustrations of Macbeth with three questions attached to them. The questions encourage the pupils to consider:
1. What the scene is
2. What comes before and after it
3. 5 quotations associated with it.
The Macbeth booklet consists of 6 extracts (part A and B questions) and a mark scheme.
A small unit of work based around the topic of American Civil Rights:
1. Claude McKay
2. Elizabeth Eckford
3. Langston Hughes
4. Martin Luther King
5. The Help
6. Twelve Years a Slave
7. Uncle Tom's Cabin
The units include examination preparation using poetry, fiction, non-fiction and film.
A collection of lessons and resources built around the topic theme of 'The Unexplained and Magical'.
The resource includes:
1. Bermuda Triangle
2. Black Dahlia
4. Gothic Analysis
5. Gothic Fairy Tale
6. Enfield Poltergeist
7. The Lovely Bones
8. The Tell Tale Heart
9. The Woman in Black
Topics include exam based activities and invite group work and discussion. My group loved gruesome details and mysteries, so I know this won't be to everyone's taste. Enjoy :)
A resource made to encourage my reluctant year 11 to read and analyse Macbeth. The extract is for part (a) of the question and part (b) requires looking at the full text. I have used BME (beginning, middle and end) to encourage my class to track the whole play and not just part.
I created a resource for my year 11s for their Unseen Poetry lesson:
1. Copy of November Story
2. Copy of November Night. Edinburgh
3. Exam questions and response boxes
4. Exam responses to analyse (one paragraph per question has been completed)
5. Mark schemes for part a and b. I also included a simplified AO checklist beside each one too
6. Mark a practice paragraph response.
GCSE English Language Paper 2 Question 2 activity. The activity includes extracts from Rose West and Oliver Twist (an extreme contrast!). The question asks for a summary of how people are treated differently in both texts.
I collated all of the key terms for both papers and created a booklet for my students, that also includes a few vocabulary lists (other words for 'happy' or 'upset' etc). I have also listed other phrases for the dreaded 'this shows...'.
