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. :)

Jekyll and Hyde lessons for 6-9 (made for lock down but VERY USEFUL) See description!

(0)
This is a chapter by chapter exploration of Jekyll and Hyde (AQA but could be used with all exam boards). I created this during lock down for my top set year 10 students. Some had read it before and some had not so we started from the very beginning. The lessons could be adapted for classroom teaching! **However, I would also have found these very helpful when teaching it for the first time or for Staff CPD if you need to skill up staff. See below for why: ** The lessons contain: Audio clips throughout explaining tasks (can be deleted for classroom learning). ALL CHAPTERS FULLY ANNOTATED WITH VIDEO LINKS WHERE I TALK THROUGH THEM. Video links to lectures about the context with dual coded images as you listen. Dual coding sheets to accompany the plot and aid quotation analysis. Activities aimed at both the Lit and Lang spec. Quizzes and answers for students to correct. Links to a YouTube audio book. Videos where I explain the plot for each chapter using the dual coded images.

Remote Learning/homework/adaptable lessons/CPD - 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).

Ambition in Macbeth - feedback lesson
ShelleyDramaShelleyDrama

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.
