Persuasive Speech or Writing Literacy Mat

Persuasive Speech or Writing Literacy Mat

(0)
This simple literacy mat is designed to help students produce either a persuasive piece of writing or a speech. As you can see from the preview, students are given a series of sentence starters to help them scaffold their answers. This is a tried and tested resource which works brilliantly with students of all abilities. As a history teacher, I used this mat with my students to write formal letters of complain to General Haig about conditions in the trenches or to write a persuasive letter to a Norman Lord recommending why he should replace his Motte and Bailey Castle with a Square Keep. This resource has been so successful that it has been adopted by our English Faculty and spread around both the LEA and our Trust. This is a brilliant resource which works with all ages and abilities. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. You can also follow 'The History Academy' on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more time doing the things that you want. Anyway, have fun with this outstanding resource and stay in touch via social media. Kind Regards Roy
Card Sort: Impact of the  Norman invasion on Britain

Card Sort: Impact of the Norman invasion on Britain

(0)
This clever little card sort can be used as a starter or plenary exercise on the impact of the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066 Students have two headings and have to cut out the cards and sort them under one of two headings, Britain before the Norman invasion and Britain after the invasion. For more able students I have included an extension exercise or discussion point for the class asking them to assess whether life for ordinary people improved or got worse after the invasion. If you have an especially bright group, you could ask them to create a key to identify which cards were to do with religion, money, society or power.
