A middle-high ability lesson analysing Juliet's conversation with the Nurse after she finds out about Romeo's banishment. 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.
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.
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)
Two narrative writing resources which include: an image for building a vocabulary bank (glue in the middle of an A3/A2 sheet and carousel); a resource covering language features with a column for practice, and a paragraph by paragraph writing frame including key words.
Can span over a number of lessons and works with a wide range of abilities.
Engaging started challenging pupils to closely analyse a quotation linking it to AO1, AO2, AO4 and AO5. The rest of the lesson involves a carousel activity where you will need to write the motifs mentioned in the table onto big paper and place on tables around the room. Pupils then find quotations from the play and analyse them in their groups.
AQA A-Level Lit B Aspects of Tragedy
A comprehensive lesson plan focusing on AO4, with an engaging starter and a plenary aimed at memorising key quotations and linking them to a tragic aspects star adapted from an AQA training course.
AQA A-Level Literature B Aspects of Tragedy
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.
Two lessons covering the analysis of Act 2, Scene 1; the latter encouraging pupils to use integrated terminology. Model answer included along with a breakdown of Aristotle's tragic hero conventions.
AQA A-Level Lit B
All the work needed is the photocopying of the text for annotation.
Two lessons covering narrative structure and teaching pupils how to write a Rising Action. Includes activities and 500 words stories as complete examples of the narrative structure. Video links included to engage pupils. Definitely suited to KS3, although would be suitable to low ability KS4. Designed for AQA Language Paper 1 Q5.
Lesson focusing on Gatsby having a 'Platonic conception of himself' (AO4) and analysing methods (AO2) in two extracts (before and after he met Daisy). Brilliant extracts which allow for a lot of discussion- could be stretched over two lessons.
A great quiz which requires no editing or additional work. I spent a lot of time on this and my year 11s loved it as a recap activity. There are three activities included. May need buzzers for the 'buzzer round'- or just improvise!
