A-Level Othello Exam Question Pack 1 (AQA English Literature A, 7712)
AmyJaney88

A-Level Othello Exam Question Pack 1 (AQA English Literature A, 7712)

(1)
A set of 14 assessment tasks, following the same structure as the AQA A Level Paper 1 (Love Through the Ages), Section A, Q1 sample materials, all on Othello. This is for the new specification (7712). The assessments focus on the presentation of varying types of love across a range of key scenes in the play. This makes them useful as practice exam material, and/or for recapping key scenes in the play. Each task has a question based on the presentation of [aspect of love] in response to a statement, followed by an extract. I have now uploaded a second set of A-Level Othello exam questions - see my other resources for Pack 2

Blood Brothers AQA New Spec. 30 lesson SoW with booklet

(1)
Fully decorated. Covers plot, theme, characters, setting and context of the play. Linked to the new AQA spec and covers all the assessment objectives. Range of extension and challenge opportunities throughout. Booklet includes the activities from the powerpoint. No paper scheme of work as the powerpoints are self-explanatory.
An Inspector Calls - Complete Scheme of Work (GCSE English Literature)
AmyJaney88

An Inspector Calls - Complete Scheme of Work (GCSE English Literature)

(0)
A complete unit of work, with 17 PowerPoint lessons and accompanying resources to work through the play from the beginning to the end, developing relevant skills (AO1, AO2, AO3 and AO4). Includes opportunities for peer/self reflection using green pen (you may wish to change this if your school has a different colour/policy for independent reflection). Aimed at middle-higher ability but can be adapted. Lessons are designed to be one hour each but many can be stretched to allow for more detailed exploration of ideas where relevant. Useful for any study of An Inspector Calls but created with the new AQA specification (8702, Paper 2) in mind. Note: there are a range of original resources within the package, but two of these are freely available on TES (dominoes task and tension ordering in lessons 1 and 6). I am absolutely not claiming these as my own but including them within the scheme as they are incorporated in the two of the lesson plan PowerPoints I've created :)
A Christmas Carol GCSE Revision Board Game

A Christmas Carol GCSE Revision Board Game

(0)
The board will need to be printed on A3 and could be laminated for reuse. This is a really good way of getting students to revisit their learning and knowledge of the characters, themes, context and events of the novella in a fun and independent way. I have used this before and the students really enjoy it. All you will need it some dice to play. You could get students to think of their own questions and tasks too as an extension/challenge.
'A Christmas Carol' exam tasks (AQA GCSE English Literature 8702, Paper 1, Section B)

'A Christmas Carol' exam tasks (AQA GCSE English Literature 8702, Paper 1, Section B)

(0)
A comprehensive collection of 23 sample exam tasks on 'A Christmas Carol' by Dickens, in the style of the new specification (8702) AQA English Lit Paper 1 GCSE exam. As with the official sample materials, each task includes brief details about where the extract is from, the extract itself with line numbers, and a question, followed by prompts to refer to the presentation of character/theme/idea/setting in the extract and the novel as a whole. The tasks are ordered in the same sequence as the extracts appear in the novel, so this would also be useful for recapping the story through key extracts.

Alice in Wonderland - 16 lesson Scheme of Work

(1)
Would probably last longer if required. This focuses on the first 'Alice in Wonderland' book by Lewis Carroll. Mainly focused on writing skills. Covers all of the book apart from Chapter 9 and 10. Activities include challenge tasks to extend students' thinking skills. All resources needed are included and all powerpoint slides come decorated and ready to use. All include learning objective and success criteria. No paper SoW as tasks are self-explanatory. Thank you for looking!
Gothic Literature - Outsiders and Freak Shows

Gothic Literature - Outsiders and Freak Shows

(0)
This is a 10 lesson scheme of work. It could potentially take longer or be easily extended. It focuses mainly on the features of Gothic writing, freak shows, and outsiders. I have also included some paper 2 language skills using real descriptions of people’s experiences of going to a freak show. You will need access to a copy of ‘The Greatest Showman’ film for lesson 7 and 8. You may need to think of some questions to ask for this lesson about the message and inferences of character. I have included links to go with the lessons from Youtube I will be using with this scheme too. There are also pictures of the cast of ‘The Greatest Showman’ with pictures of the real people they are meant to be representing.

Macbeth GCSE Exam Question Pack (AQA English Literature 8702)

(0)
A pack of six sample GCSE English Literature Paper 1, Section A assessments on Macbeth, in the style of the AQA paper. Each text gives key information on the extract, the extract itself (with line numbers), and a task relating to the presentation of a character/theme and the relevant bullet points instructing students to respond to the extract and whole play. Useful for exam practice and/or recapping key scenes. New specification (8702).

Descriptive Writing - using Power & Conflict poetry as stimulus

Descriptive Writing - using Power & Conflict poetry as stimulus

(0)
A series of 17 lessons to develop students' descriptive writing skills in preparation for the new GCSE English Language descriptive writing task (targeted specifically at the new AQA GCSE - 8700 - Paper 1, Section B). It uses some of the poems from the Power and Conflict section of the AQA anthology as a stimulus, along with a little analytical exploration of them. This is the first unit we teach our Y10s but could be easily adapted to simply focus on descriptive writing, add to the poetry, etc. If you do cover this section of the anthology, it is ready to teach 'straight out the box', with all relevant resources. Plenty of examples of published writers to use as models.
