(0)
A lesson that explores the themes, context and characters of the scene from Romeo and Juliet. Students are provided with a clear learning journey that is linked to blooms skills and the assessment objectives from the new spec AQA. The lesson follows a clear structure where students are introduced to the main idea, the theme/character analysis is developed and students then have the opportunity to apply their own skills independently. Learning objectives and activities are clearly differentiated using RAG and stretch and challenge opportunities are in the form of 'Shakespeare Challenge' questions to help encourage students to extend their ideas. This lesson is aimed at KS4 but could be adapted for use with KS3 students. Planned as a double (2 hour lesson) but could easily be split into two separate 1 hour lessons.

AQA Literature New Spec 2015- Conflict and Power Poetry Cluster

(2)
Designed for the initial teaching of the 2015 poems from the AQA Poems Past and Present Anthology- Conflict & Power cluster. There is PowerPoint for each poem in the cluster and each lesson contains: -a starter activity -context/biographical overview of the poet -and an introduction/initial impressions activity. These lessons serve as an introduction and overview to each poem and an opportunity for students to begin to annotate the poems based on their first impressions. The focus of these lessons are for students to understand the meaning of each poem so they are able to return to each later in the term to annotate in more detail. The aim of these lessons is for students to begin to understand and annotate the poems in their anthologies. Each lesson also includes a poetry SMILE analysis mat for students to use to scaffold their independent analysis and a PEEL writing frame to reflect on their understanding. The PEEL activity is generic so can be adapted to suit your group and the focus of your particular lesson.

Homework Mat- Lord of the Flies

(0)
A half term’s worth of tasks to accompany a Lord of the Flies module. There are 7 tasks in total. All the tasks are included on a mat that can be stuck in the students books at the beginning of the module- there is space left for students to add a due date for each. Each activity then includes a slide that gives more information about the task set. I tend to use these as a plenary task before setting the homework so all students are clear on the task. Each task also includes an extra ‘challenge’ task to help stretch and challenge the more able. The ppt is fully editable so you can amend the tasks to suit your own groups. I have used versions of this with high, middle and low ability students from years 9-11. As a school we have found these help increase homework completion as both parents and students are clear about what will be set across the half term. Also enables students to catch up easily with homework tasks even if they have missed the lesson where it was set. Lord of the Flies SOW also available in my shop.
