A Christmas Carol Cratchits High Ability

A Christmas Carol Cratchits High Ability

This is aimed towards teaching pupils how to write band 5/6 responses. The lesson revolves around a book about the sentimentalisation of the poor/children and families in Victorian fiction and gives pupils a valuable insight into how their presentation pertains to the typical presentation of families and children at the time and the meanings behind their characterisation. I taught this to top set year 11 and no one achieved below a 7 in their assessment on the extract. Based on the extract where the Cratchit family are introduced. Plan for roughly 20-25 minutes worth of teacher-led discussion to ensure this ideas are fully understood. This is not the extract from the Summer '17 exam which means they will be able to make perceptive links but not be overly scaffolded prior to mock examination.

Contains a bell-time activity, a number of tasks, a scaffolded extended writing task, and a broken down DIRT checklist based on the AOs (with ideas on how to improve after peer-assessment). A fantastic extract full of rich imagery and whole-play links to refer to in the first slide.

Blood Brothers Key Quotations and Concepts Revision

Blood Brothers Key Quotations and Concepts Revision

A resource detailing a number of concepts and high-ability band 6 ideas linking them with methods and quotations. Distinct lack of resources online, so spent a long time creating this. Could turn into an activity where pupils have to complete the quotation column. This is a useful resource as it allows pupils to either provide 'textual references' or 'quotations' for AO1. (spread out the information as it was all visible on preview)

AQA English Language Paper 1 Question 4

AQA English Language Paper 1 Question 4

Two resources guiding pupils through how to answer Q4. I glued the extract onto large sugar paper and had them write their reasons for/against on either side of it. Use the Gatsby one first, then the Dracula extract as a form of assessment.

GCSE English Literature Love and Relationships Poetry Revision Flashcards

GCSE English Literature Love and Relationships Poetry Revision Flashcards

Each poem has been condensed to A5 with four key quotations, context, theme and comparative links. I recommend you print the first 8 (romantic love) on one colour card and the subsequent 7 (family love) on a different colour. Used with our whole year 11 cohort and they found them extremely useful! Low to middle ability although high ability also find them useful.
