These resources span my career; from my period of teaching unqualified, through to an AST of English & Director of Teaching & Learning. Although my specialism is English, I have taught GCSE Citzienship, Language and Lit, Media Studies, Maths & History. I have also taught all of those at Key Stage 3, so there is an eclectic mix here. As the main trainer in my previous school, I have uploaded many insets and training session powerpoints too.

8 Lessons KS3 based on AQA Writer's Viewpoint Question. Writing scheme of work.

(1)
This is a Key Stage 3 Writing scheme of work that consists of 8 full lesson PowerPoint's and culminates in a writing assessment that mirrors that AQA Language Writer's Viewpoint question for the new specification. Each lesson uses reading skills to help pupils to investigate a variety of texts and to build up an information bank on the topic of the question - which is about teenagers. There are no references to levels / assessment within this scheme so any teacher can add their own assessment model or mark with the AQA Exam criteria.

AQA GCSE Drama Section C - Live Performance question Training for teachers and materials to teach

(1)
This is a ppt. of 42 original slides that have been created to train drama teachers on the new section C of the AQA Drama GCSE. The materials, although used to train teachers were created so that they could be used to actually teach so, what you have in this ppt is a series of tasks that can be delivered to students so that they have a full overview of the scheme of assessment for the whole course, what the exam looks like, how it is marked and then how to tackle the section C question. There is a break down of the mark scheme and a suggested structure for how to answer with example answers that can be marked and used as a template. It would take approx. 3 to 4 lessons to teach to students.
2017 Edexcel GCSE Language Revsion Lesson - Walking Talking Mock Style based on Little Women Extract

2017 Edexcel GCSE Language Revsion Lesson - Walking Talking Mock Style based on Little Women Extract

(0)
This is a full lesson (but it is likely to span over two) that uses the Edexcel specimen material for the new GCSE Language (2017) with the extract for Little Women - I have uploaded the specimen material for ease with this material. You can get the students to sit the paper and then go through the lesson with them afterwards, showing them what they should have done OR use the lesson to deconstruct a first go at the paper. This is perfect in preparation for the exam as revision or to introduce the format of the exam to the students.

An Inspector Calls AQA Lit 2017 How to Tackle The Question / Revision materials

(0)
This is a series of lessons to help prepare students for the AQA Lit question on An Inspector Calls (new spec 2017 exam). All lessons presume that the play has been read and studied and these are purely to help revise key themes and to detail to students exactly how they need to write a response - pitched at that is from Grade 4 to Grade 9 - there are two sets of lessons and they are differentiated. The first ppt. picks out key themes and encourages a framework for students to revise the key themes in the play on their own or by themselves. i.e they skim read looking for quotes. The other ppt.s (differentiated versions - one is 4-7; the other is 5-9) show students how to write effectively about the play whilst hitting the mark scheme. Students are given copies of the generic AQA mark scheme that they break down and use to help them to understand how to succeed. They also mark sample answers / WAGOLLs for success against the markscheme to help their understanding of how to write their own. There are example answers - never seen before, created by me with a formula for how to write responses to highest grades. Best to teach the Revision lesson, followed by the TEE lesson, then let students answer the exam style question. In the next two lessons, then reteach HOW to shape and answer and introduce MAD (Make a Difference) Time - showing and reminding students exactly what they should have done. Also included is a really useful quote sheet for AIC to help students to learn key quotes.

Edexcel Drama GCSE 2016 1-9 Exam Questions 9a and 9b - Lessons on how to analyse and evaluate

(0)
This resource is a huge ppt. consisting of 51 slides with activities and resources designed to enable a teacher to adapt the learning based on where you get to, in each lesson, by entering a new slide with a LO at the start. Alternatively, it could be taught in a whole chunk - which would probably take a full day. The materials break down which part of the exam students are focussing on, how it fits in, what the question will look like and then how to tackle it effectively. The material shows the different stages from analysis to evaluation and draw in links from English teaching to help students to write evaluatively effectively. Aiming for top band on each of the two questions, this resource will help teachers to really deconstruct how students can get the best answers in this section and offers WAGOLLs for both questions to start students off. The WAGOLLs are based on a performance of Our Town - but you can obviously adapt .
Teacher Training Session - Differentiation

Teacher Training Session - Differentiation

(0)
This is a full powerpoint with resources at the back of it, designed to help someone to lead a twilight session (approximately 1 1/2hrs to 2hrs) on why we need to differentiate and ideas of how it can be done. The session is interactive with little exercises for the teachers to take art in s that they can consider the impact of the structures for differentiating in their own classrooms. Training covers differentiation for different types of learners as well as ability. If you're buying this, you will need to have some knowledge of differentiation to deliver it, so that you can deconstruct the activities after you have tried them with the trainees.

Cambridge iGCSE English Core Paper Preparing For the Exam Full Scheme of Lessons. Not seen elsewhere

(3)
These are completely original resources that are based on the Cambridge iGCSE (Language Certificate) specification and use the format of the new style exam (Summer 2015) and question stems of the exam with the mark scheme for the Core paper. The text that is used is taken from the Edexcel anthology, so they will not be something that you have been using before or that you have ever taught pupils before. All resources are included with each lesson and hyperlinks are embedded within the images in the lesson. Each lesson is a full self contained lesson designed to be taught over a one hour period. The lessons teach pupils how to tackle the exam using various different methodical practice that includes: using highlighters, planning and linking ideas for structure, as well as how to read a text when the language may not be known to the pupils. Lesson 1 covers Question 1a and b, as well as a team activity that helps the pupils, with cooperative learning, to tackle the meaning of the challenging words in the text. It is interactive and team based - a new approach to revising for exams? Lesson 2 covers 1c to 1f and allows the pupils time to answer the questions after a short tutorial from the teacher on how to tackle them. Lesson 3 actually uses a past paper from Cambridge to demonstrate how to tackle the stumbling block of 1g that pupils always struggle with Lesson 4 Moves onto question 2 and returns to the original text from the edexcel anthology, showing pupils how to break down what the question requires and then how to plan their answer. Lesson 5 Revises writing techniques with an online clip and a class activity and then allows writing time for pupils so that they can practise question 2 and it can be marked and improved in the next lesson. Lesson 6 - uses the WIN sheet from the assessment and the Literacy marking code (also uploaded) to enable pupils to improve their own work and enhance their own performance after your input. Their progress in question 2 should really improve after this lesson. Lesson 7 - Breaks down for pupils how they should tackle question 3a and allows them to have a go at it. Lesson 8 - Then allows pupils to tackle 3b and demonstrates a way to tackle it based on their work in 3a. After this unit of work, the next step would be to allow pupils to carry out a Mock / PPE and see what progress they have made / do make on their own.

Writing Assessment Materials (whole assessment system) - KS3 and KS4 - Grade descriptors 1-9

(0)
In brief, this resource is a full assessment system that can be used both in English and other subjects (literacy across the curriculum) in order to assess the writing grades of students and to help them to diagnose their own areas for development, as well as setting targets for improving writing skills. This is not available anywhere else other than on the TES This system is all my own work and I have created the grade descriptors from scratch, using: The GCSE descriptors or writing from AQA and Edexcel combined – therefore, they are as generic as they can be and are not board specific. My own extensive experience of English teaching and exam marking. Basically, I have broken down each grade from 1-9 and matched them to the skills that pupils should need in order to achieve the grade (as a best fit). This has been done by calculating how old GCSE grades (A*-G) correlate against 1-9 and benchmarking a low C at the Grade 4. Obviously, there will be variation of grades at the end of the GCSE year for year 11, as they are set on a national curve BUT these resources lay the foundations for assessment in KS3 and to ensure that teachers within a school or department can benchmark and describe what they expect each grade to look like and what students need to be able to do to hit a grade in writing. Therefore offering complete consistency and clarity for students and teachers within a school. The resource includes: Grade descriptors for writing for 1-9 9 assessment sheets for each grade 1-9 for both AO4 and AO5 9 assessment sheets for each grade 1-9 for punctuation only, so that teachers can break down the focus if they want to A training PowerPoint for all staff that allows the lead to deliver a fully interactive session All resources for that session A training PowerPoint for the English dept. that allows the lead to deliver a full explanation of how to use the materials All resources for that session This resource is all ready for you to start working with as soon as you download it.
