'A Christmas Carol' Character Quotes English GCSE Revision

'A Christmas Carol' Character Quotes English GCSE Revision

(11)
I created this free resource when re-reading the Dickens novel 'A Christmas Carol' in preparation for teaching it to my year 10s next year. I wanted to take some really key (quite short) quotes from the novel that would be easy for my students to remember and use for revision. This resource could easily be used in lesson by making it into a test / quiz - the students would need to be confident in answering 'who said' the quote and in what context it was said. Equally, this resource is great to provide students with as part of a larger 'A Christmas Carol' pack. If this resource is helpful to you, please leave a review.

This free resource has been created by myself in an aim to support my students with their home learning of Macbeth - a surreal necessity during the Coronavirus outbreak! It’s a Microsoft Word document with enough annotations to ensure a good understanding of this Shakespeare text. This does not include really high level analysis and development but it does make this fantastic resource accessible to all ability levels. I would suggest that this would be a good resources to use in any of the following situations: Remote learning Accompanying resource for classroom teaching Homework setting Booklet creation for students who have missed Macbeth lessons (i.e. students off school with long-term illness) Although this resource is free, it is just a sample of the whole text annotations that I have created.

GCSE Speaking and Listening (EDUQAS)

This PowerPoint presentation provides the necessary information for years 10-11 to plan and complete their speaking and listening assessment. This PowerPoint is aimed at the EDUQAS spec, but could be very easily amended if the criteria were changed for a different specification. I use this presentation as an introduction to S&L and then let the students complete research on the computer to start creating their presentations. With my classes, I find it is very helpful to print this PowerPoint for them so that they have a reference / guide to help them throughout the planning of their S&L presentation. This PowerPoint includes: - an overview of what the students are expected to present - what the students can use to support them during their presentations - criteria from the EDUQAS mark scheme - FAQs

This resource contains a Powerpoint lesson created to help my students revise the use of STRIVE (subject, tone, rhyme and rhythm, imagery, vocabulary and effect) which aids them in analysing an unseen poem. It also contains a Word document which is a copy of Harrison's poem, 'Long Distance II'. This lesson is an excellent resource to introduce using STRIVE as well as using it for revision purposes. It is aimed at set 3 and 4 ability, however could easily be adapted to add stretch and challenge. The Powerpoint provides details for students of different levels of analysis that they could comment on in this poem. For example, after asking students about what imagery they could focus on in 'Long Distance II', there is an animated text box which gives some detailed examples of commentary on the poem. Please comment and rate if this resource has been helpful for you and your classes, Thank you

Apostrophes for Omission / Contractions

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.
