Macbeth Act 1 Remote Learning Worksheets (5 in total)

(0)
This collection of 5 worksheets are excellent for using with teaching Macbeth remotely. They could be used with any KS4 groups, but I have recently used them with my set 3 year 10s. These worksheets have ALL instructions and resources included so students can manage their work at their own speed and without direct instruction from a teacher. All 5 worksheets are on Microsoft Word and contain a mixture of activities to engage students in their reading of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
EDUQAS GCSE Poetry Anthology Revision Lesson - The Students Teach Each Other...

EDUQAS GCSE Poetry Anthology Revision Lesson - The Students Teach Each Other...

(0)
After studying 6 poems in the EDUQAS Poetry Anthology, I wanted to check the understanding of my group. I decided to make them teach each other about the poems! This resource is a very clear and well structured PowerPoint presentation to explain to the students what they will be expected to complete over a 2-3 lesson period. The students worked in groups, each focused on a different poem, to create a 10 minute presentation and accompanying activity to teach to their peers. I found this to be an excellent revision resource which doesn't really need any differentiating between sets, however I would suggest grouping students according to ability. The students had a really clear understanding of the task, following this presentation, and I was very impressed with the 'lessons' they produced!
Apostrophes for Omission / Contractions

Apostrophes for Omission / Contractions

(0)
This is a full PowerPoint (for a 1 hour lesson) which I have used with year 7, 8 and 9 groups. It can be helpful to give the students a reminder of apostrophes for omission before attempting to teach them about apostrophes for possession. This lesson could also be used as a cross-curricular or whole school resource to help students in other subjects understand the importance of correct grammar and amend their work as necessary. This PowerPoint is colourful, engaging and includes a challenge task which stretched the more able in my group. As a plenary, the PowerPoint also includes a peer assessment task. Please leave reviews, thank you.
Year 9. Introduction to War Poetry! 4 Lessons - Siegfried Sassoon.

Year 9. Introduction to War Poetry! 4 Lessons - Siegfried Sassoon.

(0)
These 4 lessons (with attached poems and other necessary resources) have been created for a lower ability year 9 group, as an introduction to war poetry. All lessons have clear instructions and have been created using Microsoft Powerpoint, with possibilities for stretch and challenge highlighted, as well as differentiation for the lower end of the group. The lessons focus on the poems 'Base Details' and 'Suicide in the Trenches' by Siegfried Sassoon. The lessons explore the use of satire and literary techniques as well as having a close focus on language by analysing connotations. The lesson on satire worked really well alongside showing Blackadder Goes Forth's 'Goodbye' (the final episode). Please leave a review and rating if you use this resource. Thank you!
