I have been an English teacher since 2008 and I continue to enjoy what I do. Approaching lessons and the curriculum with a creative eye has kept my interest in what 'must' be taught and my resources reflect this. Active, engaged students are what I am aiming for. (Positive mindset and all that!) I hope you can find something useful within this 'shop' - our job is hard enough without having to create everything from scratch! Kate

He4therlouise uploaded a fantastic powerpoint that broke down the PEE chain: http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Outstanding-PEA-Lesson-Using-and-amp-analysing-evidence-6186437/ I've adapted it to analyse this poem. My year 9 class really responded to this type of presentation and we developed the S&L element to mock interviews and newspaper reports. Many thanks to He4therlouise for the initial powerpoint (it has an interesting writing to argue element and I'd certainly recommend a viewing of it!) I hope either version can help you with what you're looking for.

This was created for a LAT group of Y10 students who responded really well to the solo taxonomy used to structure their success criteria. They grasped the significance of quantity and quality fairly quickly. The solo sheet was stuck into books and they recorded each step independently. We now use the symbols as the idea behind them is firmly embedded. Please comment on this resource if you find it useful! (It was graded as outstanding on the 9 point framework)

Lady of Shallot PEE Reading Analysis STRUCTURE

This is a resource designed to improve student responses to structure questions. It is based on Tennyson's 'The Lady Of Shallot' and uses a collaborative approach to build confidence in the learners before the assessment. There is a self assessment grid and excerpt from the ballad to aid teaching. Ideally, this resource would span 2 hours/ 2 lessons.

Juliet Capulet - Key quotations character map REVISION

Quotations that track the changing character of Juliet through the play 'Romeo and Juliet'. Originally created for Edexcel Literature question: 'How does the character of Juliet develop throughout the play?' This is a visually engaging resource that plays on the revision technique of mind maps. It is in black and white for students to add colour and their own highlighting/annotations to aid their revision of these key quotations.

A creative break from the 'Moon on the Tides' poetry analysis. Pupils will use a poem from the conflict cluster as a creative stimulus after a short section of 'unseen' analysis of the poem. I used the Radio 2 competition as a motivational tool but this resource is easily adaptable.

A novel way of looking at structure to elicit more detailed and thoughtful responses from students analysing a text. I'm convinced that I &'lifted&'; the Dickens extract from another contributor; it has proved very useful to me over the years. Thank you! (Apologies for forgetting your name) This also uses Kagan's co-operative learning strategies and encourages more independence from learners. If you like this resource or have a suggestion for improvement, please leave a comment :)

Simple task on presentational devices. I found that the media presentation of the WBD books really hooked the pupils in; the trailers for the books are on youtube. I started with a presentational devices wordsearch and used the WBD template for the bookmarks. The PEE at the end was structured for lower ability year 7. I hope the pupils enjoy it; mine wanted every book that they saw!

This resource has been developed using the Heinemann 'Make the Grade&' text book. The mix and match activity is on slide one to print and slice, the article for the main writing question is &';The show must go on'. The example responses were from the text book - I&'ll upload a copy when I get time! I hope this can be of some use to you - if it is, or you have another comment, please leave feedback. Thanks!

Initially used with higher ability KS4 classes, this resource can be adapted for lower sets. One other idea I tried was to use characters from 'Shameless' as the central image and ask the pupils to think up the written copy to accompany the image with the purpose of encouraging others to donate money to these people. Believe Campaign was 2002. It was created for old spec. but can be easily adjusted for 2010 spec.

This is a powerpoint activity for lower ability students who are learning to analyse colour in media contexts. As my class are challenging and have weak literacy skills I printed the three analysis slides out as a worksheet for the pupils to write on. My development from this lesson was to ask the pupils to bring in an advert that used colour in a way that interested them. This initial powerpoint and structured worksheet helped them to develop their own analysis of media texts. I hope it is useful to somebody else!
