Megamind- Impressions - Fiction Reading (Component 1a Eduqas)

This lesson plan has a lot of depth and is open to interpretation which means that it can be used for both lower ability and higher ability depending on differentiation strategies. I used this with a low ability group and we went through each question in detail. This resource was designed with the Language Component 1a question in mind and questions are adapted using the exemplar question papers provided by Eduqas. It is possible to use this resource as an assessment/data collection due to the fact that i have attached a mark scheme for the Impression question and the marks for the other questions are on the powerpoint resource.

Much Ado About Nothing: Guess The Speaker

Much Ado About Nothing: Guess The Speaker

This is a great activity to do for low ability students whilst they watch the movie. Students can identify who is speaking but they can also begin to analyse the quotations because I have left space around the quotes for annotations. This will allow students to feel less intimidated by a Shakespearean text. For higher ability students this could be done without the film - and students would have to recall information/interpret which character is speaking based on the tone that they are using.

Adverbs: Literacy Lesson

Adverbs: Literacy Lesson

The focus of this lesson is to show students that within creative writing adverbs allow us to see more about a character/situation and how adverbs can change the tone of an entire piece of writing. Students build on their prior knowledge of adverbs by working as a group to edit paragraphs lacking adverbs (you can differentiate this easily because as the paragraphs move on in the resource attached they get more difficult). My students LOVED this lesson and now I do lots of literacy lessons with interactive bits like this.
