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.

Success criteria/ self-assessment uses Alan Peat sentences but can be adapted to suit appropriate sentence structures.

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.

Low to middle ability although high ability also find them useful.
