Using Apostrophes (Power Point)

Using Apostrophes (Power Point)

(0)
This power point demonstrates how to use apostrophes of both omission (to show missing letters) and possession (to show belonging.) 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. Slides 6-30 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.) The presentation also references other aspects of English, including using formal/informal language and pronouns.
Punctuation Guide

Punctuation Guide

(0)
This comprehensive punctuation guide explains how to use the different types of punctuation- from capital letters and full stops to colons and semi colons. It can be used with adult learners or older children/teenagers for revision, or as scaffolding for proof reading exercises and activities on using punctuation (to access my learnclick.com punctuation challenges, follow the links on https://www.annaliteracystuff.com/punctuation-general-guide ) Differentiation In my opinion, the full guide is only suitable for students with a strong working knowledge of basic and intermediate level punctuation, who are deemed ready to progress to the higher level. To avoid overloading learners with excessive information/content, I recommend a ‘staged’ approach to distributing the guide, in which students receive relevant chapters at the various stages of their progress.

Narrative Genre (Information Table)

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 .

'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.
