These are designed to help students check back over their work before they claim they are finished. DUTE is a class acronym in my classes. It means Date Underlined with the Title and the Entrance task. The box underneath is a guide to what they should do instead of shouting out. The top, middle box is a criteria they should check every piece of work against. The left side of the line is to help with creative writing and the right side is to help with analytical writing. It may require differentiation for your classes as this is based on the needs of my classes.
These have been made as a response to my SEN classes. Often, my students will get wound up in class and they need to take time outside. Telling them this can sometimes lead to confrontation as they believe they are in trouble so I made these as a way of communicating to them subtly and to allow them to quickly tell senior members of staff why they are outside. You will need to change the text, obviously.
This lesson asks students what they know about Santa. It then incorporates a video from Futurama and a reading of Neil Gaiman's Nicholas Was to show them alternative examples of Christmas stories. They then write their own using the success criteria given.
