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.

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.
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.

Edexcel Language Paper 2 New Specification - Preparing Pupils for the exam - Full Scheme of Work

(0)
For these lessons, I have created a mock up of a Paper 2 for Edexcel with its own mark scheme. The question stems and marking criteria follow those provided by the board in their SAMs. Therefore, this is a potential set of Sample Style Assessment Materials that have not been seen anywhere else. The lessons are then based on these SAMs - showing pupils, lesson by lesson how to tackle each style of question. The lessons all include activities that allow pupils to revise the techniques and then to tackle a question. Lots of cooperative learning is included with clear reference to the exam criteria at all times. These lessons target Level 3 and above (old bands) - you may need to differentiate according to the needs of your class but there are plenty of extension activities for pupils. The Lesson Objectives are: Lesson 1: To know how to begin to tackle the Edexcel Language paper. Lesson 2: To learn how to tackle Question 3 on Paper 2 Lesson 3: To use prior learning to tackle 3 exam questions! Lesson 4: To know how to evaluate a text and attempt an evaluation style question. Lesson 5: To be able to effectively critically evaluate a text. Lesson 6: To learn how to compare texts effectively.

Outstanding Teaching & Learning Training

This is a training session that I deliver to all of the teachers that I train - at various stages of their career - although NQTs have been the ones that have got the most of it. It is yet another piece of my work that has been seen being used in training sessions where people have paid to go - so blatantly stolen. For that reason, so that no-one else makes a profit out of my work - I offer it out freely to all of my training and teaching colleagues and hope that you get a great deal out of all of the work that I have put in here!
Edexcel Drama GCSE 2016 1-9 Exam Questions 9a and 9b - Lessons on how to analyse and evaluate

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 .

Edexcel English Language GCSE Paper 2017 - Unit of work for Paper 2

(1)
This is a full unit of work, that consists of 15 lesson powerpoints, complete with all resources. Created initially with new questions for 1,2,and 3 that have never been seen elsewhere (not SAMs) and then utilising the Edexcel SAMs, showing students how to attempt each question, allowing them to practise and using mark schemes for peer / self evaluation. There are useful techniques provided for each and every question, including time management. The unit has been taught successfully and adapted accordingly. Obviously any teacher will need to adapt lessons in line with what they manage to cover in any given lesson but each ppt. is designed for a full one hour lesson. All of the questions are fully covered and deconstructed so that the teacher can guide students through what they need to do - including the writing section. After this unit, students will be fully prepared to attempt a full paper so that you can diagnose areas for development.

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.

This is a GCSE booster session for the more able students that will take approximately 2 1/2 hours to deliver (2 if some of the work is given as flip learning - i.e the first tasks). It is a full powerpoint that uses all of the techniques that AQA are suggesting will help candidates to get to the 8s and 9s. It is set up, ready to be delivered and the resource booklet is also included at the end of the ppt. Aswith all of my sessions, tasks and instructions are clear and embedded so that it can be delivered as it stands. This is the first in a series of booster sessions that is targeting the more able and the others will rely on the techniques shown in this one for them to be successful. The session delivers exam technique and how to write the exam style question - it does not reteach content at all. There are WAGOLLs throughout an the focus is on a critical style of writing, references and what subject terminology is. This session could also be adapted to train teachers who are teaching top sets in GCSE Lit. Success Criteria: To know the criteria for level 6 responses (Grade 8 and 9). To understand what ‘going in and out’ of the extract means. To know how to analyse key words / phrases to Grade 8 / 9 standard. To understand the difference between quotes and references. To understand what subject terminology is. To better understand what a critical writing style is.
