The Teacher's Table (Sangamam)

The Teacher's Table (Sangamam) has its main objective firmly rooted in a desire to make your life just a little less stressful. The job of teaching today is hard enough with all the bureaucracy outside of the classroom; therefore, we hope to create harmony within the classroom with schemes of work that are a pleasure for you to teach and inspiring for your students to learn from.

Narrative/Story/Creative Writing SoW with PowerPoint.

(1)
This unit is a comprehensive four-week (24 lessons) scheme of work for narrative/story/creative writing.Key skills are taught each lesson and all resources are provided. The PowerPoint lessons are intended to be stress free for you to teach from and clear enough for all your students to follow. The unit includes a selection of flash fiction as well as short stories to get students from ages 13 -16 into a story writing frame of mind. There are plenty of opportunities for paired and group work so that students share their knowledge and learn from one another. In addition, creative writing opportunities are provided each week and gradually build towards obtaining a solid understanding of what is required to create a more sophisticated story. One summative assessment in a similar style to the AQA GCSE English Language Paper 1 - Explorations in creative reading and writing (Section B) is provided. The format and breadth of this unit is similar to my free To Kill a Mockingbird resource available on TES: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/to-kill-a-mockingbird-a-detailed-6-week-sow-including-powerpoint-lessons-and-all-resources-12150305. Please take a look at this resource before purchasing the Narrative Writing Unit to ensure that my style of unit writing suits your needs! If you do have any time in your busy school day, please leave some feedback regarding the unit. Thanks. JS

To Kill a Mockingbird SoW with PowerPoint.

This 6-week scheme of work is detailed and includes background information to ensure you are well-prepared before teaching each lesson using the PowerPoint to guide you. In addition, all classroom materials are provided; you don’t have to dash around each morning trying to download or create a worksheet! There are plenty of opportunities for classroom discussions, paired or group work as well as time to actually read the novel as a class. I have created one summative assessment in a similar style to the AQA GCSE English Language Paper 1 and there is in addition a formative debate to get your students up on their feet and eager to air their views. The intention is that students finish the unit with a real understanding of the significance of To Kill a Mockingbird in the past, present and future. I would appreciate any feedback you have regarding the unit. Thanks. JS
