AQA Unseen Poetry focused on the way we view the world - high ability

(0)
These lessons were designed to stretch and challenge my top set year 11 class. You will find about 3 lessons worth of material (perhaps more with lower ability groups). Lesson includes Power Point presentation, an A3 sheet for students to use, an exemplar for the single analysis and an exemplar for the unseen comparison. Mark schemes are used within the Power Point also. What I do: Complete lesson 1 in class - let them discuss the poem for section C and begin getting ideas down. Ask them to write a response for homework. Next lesson with them ask them to grade their work/peer mark work. Get them to compare it to my model and then make improvements. Complete the unseen comparison for homework. Next lesson discuss comparison as a class, give them my model and repeat the same process as in the previous lesson. These are not poems used in any other lessons found online so if you are looking for new material these will help. :)
Literacy lessons for all subjects - Teaching tier two vocabulary across the curriculum

Literacy lessons for all subjects - Teaching tier two vocabulary across the curriculum

(0)
**Calling all Literacy Coordinators, KS3 Coordinators, and staff who might have a responsibility to developing cross-curricular learning. ** There are 12 PowerPoint presentations that help teach students vocabulary. Each Powerpoint will take students through a series of words used and taught within each subject at KS3 and then ask them to complete a task (sometimes linked to that subject and often not). The premise of this is to expose students to tier two vocabulary both within the context of that subject and in alternative contexts. The activities are taken from various places on the internet and all links should fully work. Subjects featured in these Powerpoints are: English (based on A Midsummer Nights Dream) Maths Science History Geography Food Technology Product Design Physical Education Philosophy and Ethics Art Music Drama DISCLOSURE: These resources have been designed for remote learning but could be used in other ways. They were also designed for our very able year 7 cohort but could be used in other years, right up to year 11 (some activities might need changing to suit a more mature audience).

An Inspector Calls: Mrs Birling and Class

(0)
This is designed as a double lesson or series of lessons where you give students the chance to explore the theme themselves first and then reveal lots of possible ideas that they may or may not have come up with. This is how I use these lessons: Give students the planning sheet at the beginning and students use this throughout to make their notes. This, along with the essay that they produce, becomes a revision resource. Lesson 1: Spend the first 5 minutes completing starter. Then 10 minutes exploring contextual factors that link to this theme. Students then spend 5 minutes writing their opening argument (this may need a full lesson of teaching beforehand. See my lesson on creating introductions/thesis statements). Allow students to spend 15/20 minutes planning for the question. This can be independent, pairs or groups. Share ideas at the end and have students use a different coloured pen to show where they have improved or added ideas. Lesson 2: Give students 5 minutes to reread plan from lesson. 20 minutes where you teach the ideas that they might have come up with or may not have. Students spend the rest of the lesson writing the essay. Give essay to finish as homework. Lesson 3: Feedback This lesson comes perhaps a week later. See feedback lesson created for this.
Ambition in Macbeth - feedback lesson

Ambition in Macbeth - feedback lesson

(0)
This is a lesson I created after my students had written about ambition in Act One of Macbeth. It includes: A grade 9 real student exemplar (writing about Act One only). The AQA top band marks scheme. This can be used after teaching Act One or in the build up to the ambition assessment. You might also use it as an aid to help students begin writing - you have completed Act One and now they have to continue and write about ambition in the rest of the play. The assessment uses the AQA past paper about ambition ion Macbeth but this lesson could be used more generally by just looking at ambition in Macbeth. You could also swap out the AQA marks scheme and replace it with another exam board.

Halloween lesson: Japanese Ghost story. AQA Language Paper 1 style

Halloween lesson: Japanese Ghost story. AQA Language Paper 1 style

(0)
I have used a Japanese Ghost story and created tasks in the style of AQA Language Paper 1. The PPT is designed to stretch across a double lesson or multiple lessons. The story is not difficult and would suit most ages (11-16). The story is longer than what AQA would give an extract, but only by about double. These would work perfectly for a Halloween inspired lesson that still focuses on the important reading skills needed for Paper 1. Lesson includes: Extact Guided PPT Some example writing Questions to guide you through the extract. Writing frames. Enjoy!
