Goodnight Mister Tom SOW- 14 lessons

(5)
A scheme of work focusing on chapters 1-11 of the novel Goodnight Mister Tom. Aimed at 11-14 year olds but can be adapted to suit younger students. This scheme is aimed at middle ability students but does use challenge questions (sub-titled on the slides) to enable you to stretch and challenge your most able. The scheme aims to build reading skills to prepare students for the new specification examinations. The skills that they develop during this module are linked to their ability to differentiate between explicit and implicit information and infer meaning and the writer's message. Students will also be able to develop their contextual knowledge and learn how to apply this to their reading to aid understanding. Each powerpoint should complement the reading of each chapter. Each lesson has a mini starter linked to the text. There is then a SPAG/Literacy starter to compliment the lesson. Most lessons are focused on the reading of a chapter, this is then followed by an activity based on the students' reading and then a developmental activity to consolidate their learning. There is also a Scheme of Learning Document (see FJO shop) available that may be useful if the scheme is being used for a whole department. This clearly details the overall learning journey of the module and clearly shows the differentiation strategy.

An overview of the six language levels for A Level Language study: Lexis and Semantics Grammar Phonetics, phonology and prosodics Graphology Pragmatics Discourse Can be used for any exam board. These can be used as displays or for revision prompts/notes in student folders. Each language level has: a definition, a list of key questions to ask about a text and a list of key terminology. The terminology is listed and can either be used in conjunction with each exam board's glossary or, as I do with my students, a list for them to use to research each definition with an aim to creating their own glossary.

Romeo and Juliet SOW- AQA New Specification Literature 2017- Paper 1 Shakespeare

(6)
A SOW aimed at middle to higher ability students to introduce and analyse Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in preparation for the 2017 examinations. The lessons focus on specific scenes from the play and aim to build students' analytical skills. The lessons aim to address all of the assessment objectives and explore: Shakespeare's use of language to convey meaning/messages; information about context relevant to specific scenes; staging/dramatic effects and audience reactions. Where worksheets are required I have designed these to be part of the powerpoint so please check the separate section at the end of each PPT for printable resources. There are also clear differentiation strategies used throughout with a RAG learning journey for each lesson, RAG tiered questions and 'Shakespeare Challenge' questions in each lesson to encourage deeper learning. There are two assessment points built in and I have tried to mock up a 'sample paper' for each assessment so students are aware of what the exam paper will look like. This also avoids using the AQA sample papers as at present there are only two available. Please note that not all scenes are covered, the scenes included are listed below: Act 1 Scene 1 Act 1 Scene 2 Act 1 Scene 3 Act 1 Scene 5 Act 2 Scene 2 Act 2 Scene 6 Act 3 Scene 1 Act 3 Scene 2 Act 3 Scene 3 Formative Assessment on Act 3 Scene 3 Act 4 Scene 3 Act 4 Scene 5 Act 5 Scene 1 Act 5 Scene 2 Act 5 Scene 3 Summative Assessment on Act 5 Scene 3 I have also had to remove images from the film/stage versions of the play due to copyright so these may be worthwhile to add back in to illuminate the staging effects to students. Additional Note: My students are using the Sparknotes No Fear Shakespeare editions of the text which are very helpful for their understanding and revision and enable a more independent approach for student lead activities.

KS3 Literacy SOW/ Plan/ Rationale

(10)
A KS3 plan of how to teach, plan and track literacy across the key stage. Each plan tracks the language and grammar skills that students will need for the new English Language and Literature specifications GCSE examinations from 2015. Each document depicts a language, a punctuation and a sentence skill that students will focus on each half term. It also has a clear rationale of how each skills links to the assessment objectives from the exam. It is intended to help staff to target specific skills each half term. There is also a section that details suggested reading activities to be used with class novels. Each activity is linked to Bloom's taxonomy as well as the AO's and are different for each key stage. The year 9 document also suggests how questions can be phrased to link to the new English Language (unseen literature) paper 1. The scheme is intended to be used by a department to aid building literacy into existing schemes of work or to help structure stand alone library/literacy lessons.

AQA English Language GCSE - Paper 1, Section B SOW- Explorations in Creative Writing

(2)
These lessons are aimed at year 10 students who are studying for AQA Paper 1. They can also be used/adapted to suit other year groups to develop creative writing skills. This is a full module of lessons that lead up to the students completing a mock AQA paper. The lessons explore and develop the skills students learned in Section A and begin to apply these techniques in their own descriptive/narrative writing piece. The lessons are based on the skills required as detailed in the AQA mark scheme. The lessons have a mixture of individual, paired and group work tasks. Model answers are included in multiple lessons so that students can clearly see what they are expected to be able to write by the end of the module. Differentiated extracts are also used so you can adapt the activities to suit your group’s ability. Most lessons are planned for a double session (2 hours) so can be split to create separate lessons if required. Lesson 1: Introduction to the module and a focus on developing ambitious vocabulary. Lesson 2: Setting- Crafting figurative language devices to zoom in on detail. Lesson 3: Sentence Structure- Reviewing the different types of sentences and applying them artfully to create effects. Lesson 4: Structure- Exploring how to create a narrative journey in a text. Lesson 5: Creating Tone/Atmosphere- Exploration of how subtly changing vocabulary choices can create specific tone/atmosphere in descriptive writing. Lesson 6: Narrative Structure- Explore the structure of a narrative looking at ‘story mountain’ and how it can be applied to writing. Lesson 7: Opening- Identify techniques in a range of extracts and consider what makes an effective opening to a narrative and how to hook the reader. Lesson 8: Tense- Group work tasks where students look at model answers and then experiment with changing tenses in their own work. Most lessons were planned as double lessons (2 hours) so can easily be split to form two 1 hour lessons. Additional information for some tasks and challenge questions are written in the notes section of the PPTs. Please note that some images and extracts have been removed due to copyright. Where possible I have tried to list what these items were either on the slide or in the notes section to enable you to try and locate if desired.
