Teach Lit & Lang

I have a BA in English from Royal Holloway, University of London, and have decided to use my love of Literature to help young people. I currently Tutor English Lit & Lang 1-1. My shop provides resources for teaching GCSE students English Language and Literature, in line with the new Grade 9-1 grading system. Many GCSE resources are primarily AQA, but can be easily adapted for other examining boards too. Some resources available for younger students too! Add passion to your teaching!

Word Types & 'Storm on the Island' by Seamus Heaney

Word Types & 'Storm on the Island' by Seamus Heaney

(0)
This is a great resource for younger students and GCSE students alike. Having explored the different word types already with a student, this activity asks the student to consider what certain word type category underlined or highlighted words fit into, given the sentence they are used in. This activity is based on Seamus Heaney’s poem, ‘Storm on the Island’, which is from the AQA GCSE ‘Power & Conflict’ poetry cluster. This activity gets the student to not only become more familiar and confident with their word types, but also engages the student in looking at some poetry too. It also teaches the student that certain words are not always considered to be the same word type, but change in accordance with how/in what context the word is used. The lesson could then progress into an analysis of the poem, or simply be used to cement learning word types. All feedback welcome!
