A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO TEACHING IB ENGLISH B TEXT TYPES This resource is part of a BUNDLE of 3, but if it is all you require, this is what you can look forward to in this download: 1 Unit lesson plan overview document – lesson activities, learning intentions, differentiation, ATLs 1 TEN-page Student Workbook – which, when completed, serves as a revision document for use prior to examinations and includes a scaffold to help students focus on conceptual understanding 1 mentor text – written using the required conventions and features so students will not only model their writing on it, but also use it for deep de-construction and language analysis 1 Exam-style listening question paper + audio track by the writer explaining the process of writing the mentor text + answer key + audio transcript 1 Exam-style reading paper + answer key – using the mentor text 10 detailed, step-by-step LESSON PPT PDFs which include plenary and daily homework activities AND links to animated PowerPoint Videos hosted on YouTube Over 25 differentiated class activity pages with relevant answer keys covering a wide range of ATL skills. This means there is almost nothing you need to do to deliver these lessons (except familiarize yourself with the lesson PDF and ensure relevant activity pages are printed) – saving you hours and hours of planning and preparation time. You will , however, have to mark their writing assignments at the end though, but that will be after they have self and peer-assessed each other’s work to make their next draft even better. Crammed with loads of speaking and sharing opportunities, this resource also takes away the need for you to be the ‘sage on the stage’; instead, you will provide differentiated learning tasks which will enable you to provide one-to-one support for individuals or groups that need it. Plus, it encourages students to take responsibility for their learning as their efforts are essential for the learning of everyone else. If you purchase it - thank you! Please let me know how you have used it and feel free to provide the feedback you think it rightfully deserves. Have a great day!

A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO TEACHING IB ENGLISH B TEXT TYPES Student-led, student-focussed, fully resourced teaching units requiring almost no preparation. Built upon the new themes, each 10-lesson unit is designed to help students write a specific text type. Using a mentor text, the unit encourages students to explore format, structure, language use and conceptual understanding in order to prepare them to write a similar text of their own. To exploit the mentor text fully, students are guided through the following process: • setting context and activating prior knowledge • preparing vocabulary and clarifying concepts • understanding sentence structures • discerning format and the sequence of ideas • reading for inference and meaning • annotating relevant features • completing a listening and reading exam-style paper based on the mentor text • deconstructing the text • preparing vocabulary, sentence frames and guiding questions • creating a rubric for peer and self-assessment • planning collaboratively to prepare for writing • peer assessing the first draft The lessons come with differentiated group activity pages, so students need to be arranged in 3 groups for the duration of the unit as most of the lessons are differentiated by activity, difficulty, and outcome. There are, however, loads of opportunities for the students to interact with their peers in other groups. Where necessary, answer keys have been provided. The unit has many ATLs embedded throughout and there are multiple speaking and listening tasks requiring students to share and interact. As the students work through the unit, they create a revision booklet which they can then use to prepare for the examinations. What makes these units different is their use of text types to explore a theme rather than the other way around, and the lessons are designed specifically to help second language learners, using the process of eliciting and sharing, so that students use their strengths and experiences to guide their learning.
