A few lessons looking at villains in literature. Looks at Frankenstein (using the extract that starts 'Dreary November) and a selection of other villains. Students do their own research and then look at fictional villains in film.
Three extracts for the analysis questions of both paper 1 and 2. The question for Frankenstein was... How does the writer use language to portray a negative view of the monster? Includes a question race to add a bit of variety
This is a 5 week scheme of work for the genre of Fantasy. It explores the ideas in Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, The Hobbit and more. It was designed to be used with both a set 2 and 3. The resources for each lesson are included in the power point and are clearly labelled. Differentiated slides are also included. Any clips are linked on the slides. My classes found this engaging and there are a range of activities. The SOW has a focus on writing skills but some reading and language analysis skills are also visited.
A scheme that covers narrative writing initially and then moves onto descriptive. There are about two weeks worth of lessons on Language and its effects. A few lessons on the structure question and a whole outline for the GCSE exams.
This resource covers three lessons but will last for about 5 due to the students having to write their own story. They begin with an example story and improvements and then slowly build up their own. For mid-lower ability. Used with year 8.
A scheme of work designed to cover the Novel Trash by Andy Mulligan. Only half of the text is covered here but I will be uploading the second half also.
I did a whole lesson reading and a lesson making THEME posters but mostly these lessons have taken a lesson and a bit to get through with mid ability students. Every link you need is on here.
This scheme of work was created for a 5 week half term, however, it is detailed enough to last up to 7 weeks.
Various lessons that cover the key scenes of the play. Lessons include; character explorations, language analysis; comparisons, how to answer an exam question with a detailed run through. Slides include resources and clips that are needed for the lessons. This was made for a year 10 set with target grades of 6-8. They found some of the tasks challenging and found the races at the beginning engaging.
This was also paired with one week of solid text reading. I introduced the text initially, spent one week reading in class and then went on to discuss the key points.
This scheme of work was produced for a middle to top set. Includes writing from Bill Bryson and extracts from Touching the void. Students looked and tension and emotion on long journey's. There was also a focus on the journey that refugees made. Some poetry was studied. Assessments are included.
Resources to help with the teaching and understanding of themes within A Taste of Honey. Include articles about relevant context such as single mothers and racism; an exam style question on isolation and worksheets on prejudice and death and darkness.
A PPT to take you over two lessons that focus on the themes in A Christmas Carol and Dicken’s intentions when writing. Question prompts. It refers to a video but the video is just on youtube and is a general one about Charles dickens point of view. Information sheets come from the British Library. This is very much Student led.
A six week scheme of work for teaching the AQA Language Paper 2. PowerPoint is self explanatory and covers both section A and section B.
