(0)
A lesson focussing on question 3 of the AQA 2017 Explorations in Creative Reading and Writing unit. I used Divergent as a stimulus - and put stills of the opening of the film on a sheet - they then thought about what they were focussed on as an audience. We then read the extract and highlighted where our focus was changed. With a model answer. Using Diverget.

Lesson 9 of a scheme of learning about Animal Farm for new AQA. Low ability year 9. In this lesson, students used a scaffolded and differentiated sheet to analyse Squealer's speech, and they then completed a 20 minute writing assessment answering the question: How does Squealer uses propaganda in chapter 3 and how is this similar to Russian propaganda? Peer assessment at the end. This was an observed lesson graded outstanding.

Year 9 Low Ability Macbeth AQA 9-1 Exploring the Captain's Speech Scene 2

(0)
A lesson exploring the presentation of Macbeth. I try to drip feed them the context so that they know where to link. I also introduce them to new vocab each lesson too - and recap the next. With this lesson, I annotated my own copy of the text. I looked at how he is presented as an "eagle" and "lion" - like an apex predator- unbeatable. Also, "cannons overcharged" - like a lethal weapon, ruthlessly attacking. I also explored idea of a tragic flaw - character has to appear noble so that the downfall is even more shocking. Challenge part of the lesson - how does Shakespeare perhaps subtly suggest that Macbeth has ability to be evil? "bathe in reeking wounds" and "Golgotha" quotes - suggest that he actually enjoys death, and takes pleasure in it. Killing the traitor was not just a task, but something he enjoyed - sadistic? Those were the notes I used for the lesson.
