World Book Day Quiz

World Book Day Quiz

(12)
Another one of my 'interactive' Quizzes - this is #3! The pattern is the same as my other ones - so TV Intros, Who Am I?, Films, Dingbats etc. However, all of these have a focus on World Book Day - so all the questions are linked to books. You could, obviously, do this at other times though! It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a number of clues!) right up to my Upper 6th English. There are rounds my younger class did much better at!!! It should happily take up a lesson or a tutor period - the answers are included at the back. You can pick up my other two quizzes - in the same format - here: End of Term Quiz #1 End of Term Quiz #2

End of Term Quiz #2

(19)
After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest one An interactive, End of Term Quiz. This has a variety of rounds - TV Intros, Children's Literature, Film, Science, Dingbats etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive here: although there is a slight Christmas flavour to the movie round. It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.
'My Box' - Gillian Clarke - Line by Line analysis

'My Box' - Gillian Clarke - Line by Line analysis

(4)
This presentation will take you through, line by line, some of the key features that may be worth discussing in class about Gillian Clarke's 'My Box'. The analysis here is, largely, aimed at the CIE IGCSE English Literature Poetry examination - nevertheless, I hope it would be useful for anyone studying this poem. I have also included, in each individual analysis, a series of seven 'revision prompts' that can be used at the start of lessons in order to generate some writing. You can get this separately in my shop, but I thought they'd be a nice bonus for these Line by Line analyses! This presentation is part of my Gillian Clarke Bundle #1. This bundle includes analyses on: 'Baby-Sitting'; 'Buzzard'; 'Clocks'; 'Musician'; 'My Box'; 'Neighbours'; 'Still Life'. Within that bundle, I have also included a series of Mock Exam papers that you may find useful to use for revision with your class. I also have an Ultimate Gillian Clarke Bundle that has everything I have created in it - I think that is more cost effective to pickup the whole bundle , but I know some people prefer to consider individual resources: hence listing it separately here!

Christmas Puzzle Pack #1

Christmas Puzzle Pack #1

5 Resources
I've bundled together some of my popular puzzles into one Christmas bundle- there's my first interactive 'End of Term' quiz, a giant crossword, a series of Ditloids, some Dingbats and a logic gird. The quiz take about an hour to run through. I've just used the crossword as a starter activity - it is quite tricky but they seemed to enjoy it! The Ditloids might be something for an older class, to send home for Parents or even for use in the Staffroom. Likewise, the Dingbats are a bit of fun that might engage a class during Tutor Time. The logic grid is an old family favourite of mine - hopefully your students will enjoy it too! I trust these prove useful for you as we approach the end of a busy Autumn term!

'The Merchant's Tale' - Marriage in the Medieval Ages

(1)
This lesson introduces the nature of marriage in the Middle Ages. It touches on courtly love, the nature of bethrothal and divorce and also might remedy some misconceptions about the position of women at the time. It ends with a research/homework task to consider The Marriage Group in 'The Canterbury Tales'
Christmas Ditloids #1

Christmas Ditloids #1

(2)
Another silly thing, really. A ditloid is a word puzzle where a phrase or a quotation is hidden in the numbers and abbreviated letters in the clue. Common words such as 'the', 'in', 'a', 'an', 'of', etc. are not normally abbreviated. There are a series of them here. The answer is included at the back. I'm making a 'Puzzles' bundle at the moment - I'm going to include this in it. I'd suggest picking it up as part of that bundle is the most cost-effective approach - but it is listed here separately in case you wanted that option. As always, please do be in touch with any feedback You can find other resources at: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Robert_Frost

Mock Examination  - Cambridge Pre-U - Component 3 - Comment & Analysis #1
Robert_FrostRobert_Frost

Mock Examination - Cambridge Pre-U - Component 3 - Comment & Analysis #1

(1)
I created this to help my students revise for Component 3 of the Cambridge Pre-U Literature in English. However, I would hope it would be useful for any Year 12 and Year 13 students preparing for Unseen examinations. The format of this paper is two responses in 2hr 15 minutes: one compulsory, comparative response and then two options for Critical Commentary response. The extracts are allow students to engage with Poetry, Prose and Drama. I have bundled together a number of Comment & Analysis papers together - you may find that this is a more cost effective way to purchase them. I have, though, also listed the papers seperately for your convenience. If you liked this resource, do check out my shop at: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Robert_Frost

'The Merchant's Tale' - The Marriage Group

(0)
This lesson focuses on the interplay between Kitteridge's so-called 'Marriage Group' of Tales. It touches on The Wife of Bath, The Clerk, The Merchant and The Clerk - discussing the ways in which 'courtly love' and 'maistrye' are explored. It ends with a research/homework task to consider The Merchant's Prologue and what this suggests about the Tale to come.

Chaucer - The Merchant's Tale - The Merchant's Prologue

Over the next few weeks, I will upload a line by line analyses for Chaucer's 'The Merchant's Tale' based on what I am doing with my class. This resource - including a blank version for your class to annotate - is based on The Merchant's Prologue and goes through it, line by line, to highlight some areas of interest. Although you can pick these up individually, I would probably suggest you wait until they are all uploaded (there are #14 of them) at which stage I will bundle them together. In that bundle, I will also include my 'The Merchant's Tale' presentations that you can find elsewhere in my shop.

This bundle collects all of my Quotation Jigsaw's together. I like to print these off, laminate them, then use them again and again as a revision starter activity. However, I have colleagues that will give them to their classes to cut and stick themselves. I do think they are any excellent way to force quotations into the students!
