Creative Writing Scheme of Work GCSE
ajs12345ajs12345

Creative Writing Scheme of Work GCSE

7 Resources
Full scheme of work covering all aspects of creative writing. Ideal in preparing students for GCSE English Language Paper 1, Section B. Designed with the very latest developments in the 9-1 specification in mind, this is best suited to the AQA syllabus but would be equally useful for both KS3 prep and other exam boards. Please see individual resources for more details. The lessons all work well as stand-alone, but if being used in sequence, the scheme runs as follows: Lesson 1 - Vocabulary Lesson 2 - Sensory Description Lesson 3 - Devices and Techniques Lesson 4 - Narrative and Descriptive Openings Lesson 5 - Sentence Variation Lesson 6 - Characterisation Lesson 7 - Narrative Structure Each lesson takes the form of a ‘masterclass’; each masterclass is packed with a range of activities that will enable your students to truly embed and master each aspect of creative writing. Each ‘lesson’ is probably going to take in excess of 2 hours to get through - you may wish to ‘pick and choose’ activities, or take your time with each skill area and cover them in depth. Great value bundle, save yourself over 60% compared to buying these resources separately. If you loved the resource and think it’s worth 5 stars, why not get another one absolutely free?

Punctuation and SPaG Scheme of Work
ajs12345ajs12345

Punctuation and SPaG Scheme of Work

(9)
Complete Punctuation and SPaG scheme of work for Key Stage 3 and GCSE. It’s time to win the battle against poor grammar and punctuation once and for all! Complete unit of work which will allow your students to master advanced punctuation as well as engage with a range of exciting creative writing tasks. If you are anything like me, explicit teaching/reminding of how to properly apply punctuation is ESSENTIAL for all ability ranges, especially with the new specification GCSE placing so much emphasis on AO6. These lessons are certainly geared more towards KS3 and KS4 students. Powerpoints are light hearted and fun, with plenty of images/colour and silly jokes to keep your students engaged and entertained. I’ve found these lessons serve as an excellent ‘crash course’ in punctuation either at the beginning of the academic year or in the run up to the GCSE exams. Below is a list of contents: Commas (£2 if purchased on its own) - Commas powerpoint lessons Commas in a list worksheet Commas in a complex sentences worksheet Colons (£2 if purchased on its own) - Colon powerpoint lessons Mastering colons worksheet Semi-Colons (£2 if purchased on its own)- Semi-colon lesson powerpoints Semi-colon worksheets (x2) Semi-colon writing success criteria worksheet Speech- (£2 if purchased on its own) Speech powerpoint lessons Speech worksheet Speech mixed practice worksheet Writing success criteria worksheet Editing and proof reading - (£3 if purchased on its own) Editing and proof reading mini scheme powerpoint (nearly 50 slides) Editing and proof reading worksheets (£2 if purchased separately) A wide range of proof reading worksheets that you can use to consolidate and improve your student’s SPaG and proof reading abilities after you have finished the unit of work. This unit would suit a range of abilities as there is lots of scope for stretch and challenge, with ambitious success criteria and extension tasks built in throughout. Scaffolding and differentiation options are built in where appropriate. Fully resourced and ready to roll, minimal adaptation or tweaking required. This is obviously a SPaG/Punctuation scheme of work, but it is equally focused on creative/descriptive writing too. Much of the content is therefore ideal for teaching general creative writing skills or preparing for the fiction writing task on the new specification (9-1) GCSE English Language exam. Grab a bargain compared to buying these resources separately. If you loved the resource and think it’s worth 5 stars, why not get another one absolutely free?

For a more detailed look at what you are getting, please check out the bundles for Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, Act 4 and Act 5. Praise for the scheme of work (based on reviews of individual scenes/acts): 50+ 5 STAR RATINGS AND REVIEWS “Ideal for my year 11s as the annotation activities enable them to make lots of notes. Great to see even the minor scenes covered in depth too, cannot recommend enough!” Great resource - much better than lots that I have paid more for. You even have detailed answers to the questions.

English Report Writing Comment Bank
ajs12345ajs12345

English Report Writing Comment Bank

(1)
A comprehensive set of documents which aid with the writing of reports, hopefully providing you with the tools you need to write fair, honest and balanced reports for English. The comment bank covers the following areas (as you can see from the preview there are documents for each): Introductory comments/learning cognition and progress Topics Covered Behaviour and Attitude (with targets) Reading/comprehension (and targets) Writing skills (and targets) The resources are suited to secondary Key Stages 3 and 4. Most of the comments simply require you to add a student’s name or to write their specific gender in the space provided. I’m sure these will save you a good deal of time and effort, and help bring a little inspiration to the baleful process of report writing!

Writing the perfect essay - introductions and conclusions. GCSE English Literature preparation

(17)
This is a short powerpoint guiding students through extended reading responses in English, showing them the core ingredients of good introductions and conlusions, whilst also providing modelled examples of effective and ineffective essay style. This is useful in the run up to mock or final examinations, as students often don't know how to start or end their essays in the most effective way. The examples provided relate to Shakespeare's Macbeth, but the activities could relate to any of the set texts they are likely to encounter in GCSE English literature.

Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students.

Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text.

24 Extract Questions Jekyll and Hyde. AQA GCSE
ajs12345ajs12345

24 Extract Questions Jekyll and Hyde. AQA GCSE

(4)
This booklet contains over 24 exam style questions based on all the key extracts from Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Jekyll and Hyde’. Exam questions are worded in accordance with the latest GCSE English Literature 9-1 specification. Whilst I created this resource with AQA in mind, I’m sure this would prove useful for other exam boards too. Extracts are in chronological order, so students also revise plot and the development of themes/ideas as they tackle the questions. Each question is unique, meaning that the study guide covers all the major themes, events and characters in the novella. Ideal for all teachers as there are (obviously) very fewpast papers for the new specification. I reckon I’ve predicted a few future exam questions here! Visual aids for each chapter, and for certain extracts, are provided to help remind students of key events. There’s also a page of exam tips to help students produce more effective exam responses, containing content and analysis that examiners are specifically looking for. 40 pages jam packed with content. This would make the ideal companion to the study guide/student workbook I have produced on this novella (see shop) Ready to roll, everything a student needs to revise for the exam and boost their confidence in the run up to the exam. Little/no adaptation required and a guaranteed grade saver. Buy in confidence from a TES recommended gold author!

GCSE Spoken Language Presentations 9-1. Mini Scheme of Work. AQA, EDUQAS, OCR.
ajs12345ajs12345

GCSE Spoken Language Presentations 9-1. Mini Scheme of Work. AQA, EDUQAS, OCR.

(0)
Mini scheme of work for the new spoken language element of the English Language 9-1 GCSE. As you know, exam boards are now displaying speaking and listening grades on certificates and video recording of candidates is expected. As such, I've developed this scheme of work to ensure that my classes deliver intelligent, thoughtful and engaging presentations to secure the best possible grades. This scheme is particularly tailored for the AQA specification (and contains exemplar material from AQA candidates). However, I'm sure it will prove equally useful for all other exam boards with some very minor alterations. This is a complete mini-scheme that takes around 8 hours to complete properly. You'll also need to allow another couple of lessons on top of this for the presentations themselves. The Powerpoint will coach your students from start to finish and will cover the following aspects: * Understanding the spec and mark scheme * Generating an engaging topic (provocative statement) * How to research effectively for a presentation * Structuring the talk itself * Writing in shorthand for cue cards * Looking at exemplar material to understand the ingredients of a good presentation * Paired rehearsals * Final presentations * Student reflection activity to record grade and consider skills developed. You also have a writing frame which takes the form of a 'checklist'. This is ideal for weaker groups who might struggle with the sheer size of the task; it therefore helps them break their speech right down. I've also included the specimen Spoken Language mark scheme that has been issued across all exam boards, for your reference. I've found that the scheme has worked very well due to the high level of focus in terms of getting the topic right that students talk about. There's lots of guidance on this particular aspect of the process so I'm sure you will have as much success with your groups as I've had.

This is also available as part of a complete scheme of work whereby a considerable saving can be made; further details can be found here. The lessons have been created specifically for teaching at GCSE level, and cover the key assessment objectives for 9-1 New-Specification AQA: understanding of the text, language and structure, context/themes/author intent (although equally applicable to other exam boards). Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students. Throughout the scheme, students are encouraged to make notes and annotate the text, as this will be a valuable revision tool when preparing for exams. Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text. Strictly speaking, there is probably a lot more here than you would fit into a 1 hour lesson, so you may wish to spread this over a couple of lessons, or perhaps be a little selective with the tasks you wish to do.

An Inspector Calls GCSE Context Posters

(3)
A collection of detailed and visually appealing posters exploring the context of An Inspector Calls in relation to when the play was set. These are great to have as a classroom display in your room. Similarly, these can be used as part of a marketplace activity whereby students learn about various contextual factors during a lesson. Rather than focus on specific contextual facts, I’ve broken context down into key themes, that way students can make more effective links between social/historical context and the play itself. Ideal for helping students to understand and embed AO3 into their analysis. If you liked the resources it’d be great if you could leave a review.
