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.

Ultimate Gillian Clarke Bundle

17 Resources
This contains all of my Gillian Clarke resources - for the CIE English Literature poetry exam - that I have produced thus far. That is (as of Feb 2016): * 15 PowerPoint analyses. I'm adding in my Revision Prompts into each of these analyses for free - some have them, some do not as of yet. I'm getting there. * All of my Mock Exam papers in a Mega Pack - choice of two questions modeled on the real thing. *Mock Exam Poetry Booklet Do let me know if there is anything for which you are looking on Clarke that I have not created!

'Journey' - Gillian Clarke - Line by Line analysis

(7)
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 'Journey'. 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 #2. This bundle includes analyses on: 'Catrin'; 'Pipistrelle'; 'Friesian Bull'; 'Journey'; 'Miracle on St David's Day', Family House' and 'Lunchtime Lecture' 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!

'An Inspector Calls' - Opening Stage Directions

'An Inspector Calls' - Opening Stage Directions

(3)
A cutout and stick activity for the Act One, Scene One Stage Directions. There are images for all the main stage directions which Priestley supplies at the start of the play. Students should cut them out and then assemble on a piece of white A3. They should then annotate the images with the key quotations I have found this works well to help learners appreciate the visual impact of the opening moments
World Book Day Quiz

World Book Day Quiz

(11)
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

Revision Paper - Comment and Analysis Bundle

These three examination papers were created to assist students in preparing for Component 3 of the Pre-U Literature in English. However, these Unseen analysis tasks should be likewise useful across A2 specifications
'The Merchant's Tale' - Marriage in the Medieval Ages

'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'
Spies - Frayn - Revision Prompts Bundle

Spies - Frayn - Revision Prompts Bundle

11 Resources
One of the ways in which I try to get my classes to focus on developing the quality of their analyses is to make them zoom in on key quotations and explain their importance. These Revision Prompts, therefore, are a series of key quotations from each Chapter that can be used to encourage pupils to explain the authorial method. They can either be projected on the Whiteboard, given as handouts to groups or, perhaps, emailed to students for independent revision. The way I use these is to ask students to explain the context of the quotation and then develop a paragraph which explains what Frayn is trying to achieve with these words. This bundle contains each of the individual prompts - Chapters 1-11

Remains of the Day - Critics and Quotations

In a revision lesson, my class put this together - breaking down the key themes of the novel and finding quotations and critics from their notes that fit with each header. I thought someone else might find this useful - at least as a starting point for something else!

Free Sample *** 'Journey' - Gillian Clarke - Revision Prompts ***

(14)
This is a set of seven 'Revision Prompts' which I have been using to generate some writing from my classes. These ones are linked to Gillian Clarke's 'Journey' and the prompt questions here are, largely, aimed at the CIE IGCSE English Literature Poetry examination - nevertheless, I hope it would be useful for anyone studying this poem. These prompts are included in my 'Line by Line analyses' of Clarke's poems where I suggest some ways of looking at the key ideas in the texts. You can purchase these analyses one-by-one or as part of wider bundles which also include some Mock Examination papers.
