I have designed this resource to be used for any text. This applies to English Literature and Language.
Insert your own Big Question that you would like to be answered: I recommend a GCSE-style question as this resource is encouraging critical thinking.
It has been differentiated across abilities (high, middle, lower). It also has a blank grid (bonus!) for you to insert your own ideas. I’m also for saving paper so there’s two grids to one sheet.
It can be used per group, as pairs or individual working as you see fit.
With this Socratic questioning, of course, my aims are to:
Creative an active classroom - encouraging students to participate
Ignite students’ independent thinking
This resource is for the AQA Power and Conflict poetry anthology. I recommend its use as a revision resource.
You can set students to work across columns as you see fit over the course of a series of lessons. However, it would be better for students to travel across rows of the activities to show progress.
Students should aim to do an activity of each colour. This will show they have engaged with each stage of the learning. Therefore, it is self-differentiating according to how you set the activities.
Please use as a launching pad for your own ideas as colours can be removed, etc.
