Much Ado About Nothing: Simple Plot Overview

Much Ado About Nothing: Simple Plot Overview

A powerpoint which introduces the basic plot of the play. Perfect for SEN, EAL, and visual learners. For the benefit of the kind person who rated this as too simple I would like to point out that this was used for a low-literacy group, hence the over simplification, there’s gratitude huh?

Sentence openers

Sentence openers

This lesson focuses on the somewhat uninspiring topic of sentence openers - including a fun bingo activity and a diamond 9 ranking task - leading into a GCSE-style writing task inspired by an image. Created for year 11 but suitable for KS3 and 4 alike. I hope this helps your students as it has mine! Inspired in part by Edward Munch's painting.

Predicted questions for Media Studies TV game shows with model responses.

Predicted questions for Media Studies TV game shows with model responses.

Predictions for all 4 questions on the forthcoming TV Game show 2017 paper, based on pre-release. As a former examiner, I have accompanied this with model answers which use bullet points, spider diagrams and tables but still access the highest mark. The only task I have not answered is the practical task, though I have still predicted this.
