This lesson focuses on the question: who is responsible for the deaths of Mickey and Eddie? Students are asked to: -Rank characters in order of responsibility, and discuss their opinionS -Evaluate the importance of thematic and contextual factors, including: poverty, class, fate, superstition, nature and nurture. - Consolidate their knowledge on a worksheet and reflect on their final opinion.

Blood Brothers Complete Unit/ Scheme of Work/ SOW (AQA)

This is a complete set of 14 lessons on ‘Blood Brothers’, designed for KS4 students preparing for AQA English Literature. The lessons are broken down by song so no matter which version of the text you have copies of, it should be easy to follow. It covers the whole play and I used these lessons as an accompaniment to reading the text for the first time. Also included in this set is a copy of my best-selling Blood Brothers knowledge organiser, which is a great revision tool and can be used for setting homework. In addition to this, I have included my consolidation sheets for Act 1 and Act 2, which make a great independent revision activity. Please take a look in my TES store for other Blood Brothers resources and additional standalone lessons on key topics from the play. NOTE: this resource is different to my mega bundle - the mega bundle contains posters and standalone revision lessons as well.

This display is a famiy tree of for form, structure and language. It has really helped my GCSE pupils understand how the elements of writing are linked and they refer to it frequently. Simply print onto coloured paper and use the map to position your display. The file includes - Close up, zoomable image of the display - Map of the display - All of the labels in an uneditable version and editable version, in sections so you can simply load up your printer with coloured paper and the 'families' will print together e.g. all of the punctuation words will be together, all of the forms etc. - Blank templates so you can add your own words - The title cards PLEASE NOTE: I used washi tape to create the lines connecting my labels so you will need this or something similar (such as masking tape) to do this. If you like this then please take a look at my other TES resources and follow me on twitter @MissGOToole.
