Horror was not included, as we were not providing a horror option for this unit.

Included in this bundle is a unit overview (with key activities stated), an exemplar for a Japan brochure piece of assessment, a PPT, and three of the key handouts created for this unit. It was designed for a low level Year 8 class, with students who had difficulty working in a school setting. It is a short unit (we had two lessons a week with this class), but could be extended. Assessment task sheet not included. There is no Japanese language elements to this unit - it is focused solely on culture.

Animal Research Task

(0)
Animal research task scaffolded for low, middle and high achievers with targeted learning objectives and activities. Easy to leave with a class if you are going to be away - they can then present their completed PPTs to the class next lesson (when you are back) to consolidate their learning and so you can check their understanding. Works with an entry level Japanese animal unit. A+ extension question 2 asks students to write a letter to the Premier of QLD Australia. Recommended that you change to another local Politian in your area.
Thinker Keys - Poetry

Thinker Keys - Poetry

(0)
Based off the Thinker Keys for Kids (Instruction Booklet) by Tony Ryan. All twenty keys with poetry based questions (questions are general so can be made more specific for own use). My kids are writing a narrative intervention of a poem they have studied, so some questions relate to short stories as well. I printed them onto coloured paper, cut each key/question out, folded them on the solid line, then laminated them and put them on a dollar store metal ring. Students can choose which one to work on as a lesson starter, or as an early-finisher activity. I’ve also had kids complete one for homework as an extension activity for extra class points. Works well for years 8-10 (13-15 year olds).
