'The Mystery of Anastasia Romanov' (Power Point)- Anna Michelle Chapman

(0)
‘The Mystery of Anastasia’ (Power Point) tells the story of Anastasia Romanov and her family- Russia’s last monarchy-before the Russian Revolution and the rise of the Communist Block. Following the alleged (and later confirmed) assassination of the final tsar and his wife and children, rumours began to circulate that one or more of the Romanov children may have survived and escaped the Bolsheviks, to live a new life as a commoner. This presentation provides details about Anastasia, her family members, and Anna Anderson-who famously claimed to be the young princess. Further, its narrative is rooted in historical and political context, thus (hopefully) providing an intriguing and personal introduction to the complexities of Russia’s social and political history, as Russia transformed from a rural dynastic sovereignty to an industrial ‘Communist’ state.

'Apostrophes: Part 2' (Power Point)

(0)
This Power Point mostly focuses on possessive apostrophes and avoiding common mistakes. Please see ‘Apostrophes: Part 1’ for an introduction to apostrophes and using omissive apostrophes. I designed this resource for use with FE students ( Levels 1 and 2), but it could also be used with secondary school-aged learners, strong Entry 3 students, and some older primary-aged children. PS My apologies to anyone who downloaded the previous version of this resource, which included a rather embarrassing error (for some reason, I wrote ‘comma’ instead of ‘apostrophe’ in one section.)

Narrative Genre (Information Table)

(0)
An understanding of narrative genre and generic codes can provide a framework (or a kind of ‘road map’) to analysing literature, films and TV shows and creating your own text. My related presentation introduces these concepts and invites students to identify their preferred genres and recognise parallels between texts with generic similarities. In addition to extending students’ vocabulary around literature and media, my introduction to genre and its conventions helps to consolidate concepts that learners already have some familiarity with. I hope that my resources on narrative genre will help to provide a cultural frame of reference- especially when negotiating and decoding new/unfamiliar narratives. NB When using the ‘Narrative Genre’ table with students who are fairly new to this concept, I recommend splitting this information pack into smaller sections (or ‘chunks’), and using them with a limited number of texts that match the genres selected. Also, this pack can be used as a revision guide or as a reference guide when discussing/analysing texts. This resource and others can also be downloaded from my website: [www.annaliteracystuff.com .

'Apostrophes: Part 1' & 'Apostrophes: Part 2' (Power Point Presentations)

(1)
’Apostrophes: Part 1’ This power point starts by explaining the two different uses for an apostrophe and moves on to focus on omissive apostrophes (apostrophes to signify missing letters in words/contractions, such as ‘don’t’ etc.) Slides 5-21 act as a manual ‘stop-motion’ video to visually demonstrate how omissive apostrophes are used (click to change slides at an accelerated pace to achieve this effect.) ’Apostrophes: Part 2’ for possessive apostrophes. I designed these resources for use with FE students ( Levels 1 and 2), but it could also be used with secondary school-aged learners, strong Entry 3 students, and some older primary-aged children. The presentations also reference other aspects of English, including using formal/informal language and pronouns. PS My apologies to anyone who downloaded the previous version of this resource, which included a rather embarrassing error (for some reason, I wrote ‘comma’ instead of ‘apostrophe’ in one section.) Also, I accidentally submitted a version that could not be edited.

Punctuation Stuff ( punctuation reference guide-updated 12.09.2021)

(0)
This resource is a punctuation reference guide aimed at Functional English, GCSE English and A Level English students. It is fairly comprehensive, so I would recommend only using the relevant pages with learners below Level 2, as it could otherwise prove overwhelming for some students. I would also recommend that learners use this as a ‘dip into’ reference guide to check their use of punctuation when writing, or to look up types of punctuation when reading.
