CANTERBURY TALES SCHEME - AN INTRODUCTION TO CHAUCER (3/3)

(0)
This scheme has been planned to introduce KS3 students to Chaucer and The Canterbury Tales. This is important as students need to experience texts from different time eras in order to prepare them for the new GCSE specification. This part of the scheme includes full PPT lessons and all accompanying resources. In this part, the students will look at the following: • The Miller – discuss initial impressions of character and predictions for tale. Compare original version to modern version to find patterns in words. Use quotes to create portrait and examine specific words that create impressions. • Discuss gender representations and the changing role of women. Examine The Wife of Bath – discuss impressions of her character and how she challenges/adheres to expectations and stereotypes. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCq6117mYqg (animated tales for LA) • Compare the two - discuss how to compare texts and offer writing frame focusing on physical attributions and how their characters are portrayed. • Summarise the type of people Chaucer portrayed and why the tales are still looked at today – do they challenge our own stereotypes or teach us not to judge? • Students create their own pilgrim. Reintroduce the idea of class and class stereotypes. Mindmap physical features and qualities their pilgrim will have and how physical qualities match with stereotype/class. • Develop a description of your own Pilgrim that would fit into the general prologue – use checklist of the techniques/devices Chaucer uses in his own descriptions as a guideline.

AQA PAPER 1A/TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD KS3 LESSON - ANALYSING AN EXTRACT RESOURCE BUNDLE

(0)
This resource pack includes a full lesson(s) on how to analyse a key extract. This skill is now applicable for the new specification GCSE so it is important that KS3 learners are embedding this learning early on. I have found that this lesson worked well with a year 9 class, so it can be used for high ability KS3 learners. However, I have also found it could work as part of Paper 1A as a practice extract.
