FLARRDs Persuasive Writing Techniques
LAPJLAPJ

FLARRDs Persuasive Writing Techniques

(1)
A lesson to teach six persuasive techniques to Year 7 students (although could be used with other KS3 years or even KS2 depending on ability level). Students love the Norwegian looking FLARRD and enjoy trying to pronounce it in an exaggerated way. The drawing was a very basic doodle of what a FLARRD might look like -you could swap this for your own interpretation. The grid can be used as a beetle drive style game - students roll a dice and then have to find an example of the persuasive technique before drawing that section of their creature, this would require you to provide one or several persuasive writing extracts that feature the six techniques or alternatively you could ask students to write their own examples. This lesson is designed to be used as part of the Survival Guide SOW, which is available in my shop, although it can be used independently.

Exploring Poetry - Exploring Lion Poetry
LAPJLAPJ

Exploring Poetry - Exploring Lion Poetry

(0)
A grid based lesson that encourages students to be more independent in their learning by choosing for a bank of tasks to analyse poetry. This resource can be used in many different ways depending on student ability levels - this allows for various levels of differentiation within the same lesson. In this ppt I provide slides themed around exploring poetry linked to the theme of 'lions' (along with two poems which can be used in the lesson) as well as providing slides without any link to lions so that you can use the same resource with any poetry of your choice.
