Here are 10 generic library lessons to use when a KS3 class are reading a novel. The library lessons are designed (at out school) to be 35/40 minutes reading and then 20 minutes doing an activity. There are a choice of activities on the worksheets with extension tasks attached.

Dystopian Writing  FOUR Lessons Key Stage 3

Dystopian Writing FOUR Lessons Key Stage 3

Here I have 4 lessons introducing Dystopian writing. I made these for a high ability Year 8 group but could be used and adapted for a Year 7 or Year 9. Starting with the introduction, it uses examples from texts to help the pupils understand the theme of dystopia and the differences between a utopia and dystopia. There are more lessons available to purchase but they wouldn’t upload all at once. Each whole lesson has the resources which have been numbered for ease of finding them. Hope they help!

Dystopian Writing FIVE Lessons Key Stage 3

Dystopian Writing FIVE Lessons Key Stage 3

Here I have 5 lessons for a high ability Year 8 about dystopian writing. It uses The Hunger Games to introduce symbolism and begins to get Year 8 thinking about their own dystopian writing using what they have learnt from lessons 1-4 (for sale as well) to now. There is a lot of peer and self assessment to cut down on teacher marking until the end. The idea of these lessons, with 1-4 as well, is that the pupils take more responsibility for their own writing. The pictures used as a stimulus are from dystopian texts or ideas. All resources are numbered with the whole lesson powerpoints and everything is ready to go! Included is also a homework booklet of extracts from The Hunger Games for students to ‘research’ and investigate how writers have done certain things. Each extract has a series of questions at the end of engage them in the text and to help them with their writing of dystopia.

2 Lessons The Red Room by H. G. Wells

2 Lessons The Red Room by H. G. Wells

Two lessons on The Red Room by H G Wells looking at ghost stories and the mood and atmosphere in a text. Was a nice way for my Year 9’s to begin looking at how mood and atmosphere is created so they could implement it in to their own writing.

Year 9 Animal Farm Pre Teaching Lessons 1-7

Lessons 1 - 7 Animal Farm pre teaching the novel lessons. These should be used before the student’s read the novel and they are exploring the plot and background.

KS3 Shakespeare's Villains Scheme of Work (16 Lessons) Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth, Othello & Julius Caesar

KS3 Shakespeare's Villains Scheme of Work (16 Lessons) Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth, Othello & Julius Caesar

16 WHOLE LESSONS IN TOTAL & SOME HAVE 2 LESSONS IN THEM of studying who is the biggest Shakespeare villain, analysing language and answering the 'To what extent do you agree...?' question following the AQA GCSE new exam. The students have to figure out who is the biggest villain in the play, and then they need to come to a conclusion about who is the biggest villain of them all out of the two plays. Romeo and Juliet: A modern twist where PC Barnes needs the help of 'Year 9 detectives' in order to figure out who is to blame for the conflict in Act 3, Scene 1. Part of a Shakespeare's villains SOW I have been doing for the reading section. It includes bit of 'evidence' being released bit by bit to get the year 9's to think about language use and structure by Shakespeare in order for them to come to a conclusion whether Romeo, Mercutio or Tybalt should be the Shakespeare villains from this play. THEN Julius Caesar: The whole idea is (with lessons 1-4 = all available for purchase) the class will look at Brutus' speech and Marc Anthony's and then they will compare their speeches and then decide who is the biggest villain of all. THEN = 3 Macbeth lessons looking at the opening of the play (these were designed to be a bit more fun and making the students get creative before the mini assessment). They look at whether Macbeth or the Witches should be judged for treason against the king. MOVING TO = Othello and Iago and who is the ultimate villain. Is it Othello's fault for killing his wife Desdemona? The students have an Evaluation AQA GCSE Q4 Paper 1 mini assessment at the end of these 4 Othello lessons. There is an oracy SALAD day style lesson as we had to plan one in with the school's calandar as well. Designed for a mid to higher ability Year 9 group but can be used or adapted for any. :) Hopefully engages boys and girls - I have lessons for sale individually as well. There's more to come, but ~I have yet to complete and upload! :)

KS3 - Lessons 1 & 2 What is culture? What is identity? Different Cultures Poetry Introduction Lesson

KS3 - Lessons 1 & 2 What is culture? What is identity? Different Cultures Poetry Introduction Lesson

This is a Year 8 (aimed at higher ability students) scheme of work lessons 1 &2 introducing the topic looking at what is culture and what is identity? It makes the students think about what the topic is on and introduces both culture and identity through 'Hurricane Hits England'. I think there is too much here for 2 lessons (not a bad thing) but my students enjoyed it! :) The rest of the lessons are available to purchase.

KS3 Lessons 10 & 11 - Poem Structure & Strange Fruit poem lesson - Different Cultures Poetry

KS3 Lessons 10 & 11 - Poem Structure & Strange Fruit poem lesson - Different Cultures Poetry

This is a Year 8 (aimed at higher ability students) scheme of work lessons 10 & 11 introducing form and structure of poetry and then looking at the poem Strange Fruit to employ these skills. The first lessons (1-4) I have are looking at language and then this is to push the students further so they understand everything that needs to be analysed in preparation for their 'hot' task assessment. Again, there is quite a lot for 2 lessons but easy to adapt and change!

KS3 - Lessons 8 & 9 Night at the Scorpion & Blessing Comparison - Different Cultures Poetry

KS3 - Lessons 8 & 9 Night at the Scorpion & Blessing Comparison - Different Cultures Poetry

This is a Year 8 (aimed at higher ability students) scheme of work lessons 8 & 9 looking at Night of the Scorpion and then lesson 9 takes the students through their 'warm' task comparing Blessing and Night at the Scorpion following the new AQA GCSE English Literature style of answering that question. Again, I think there is too much here for 2 lessons (not a bad thing) but my students were challenged and enjoyed linking the previous lessons to help them with this one! :) The rest of the lessons are available to purchase.

KS3 - Lessons 11, 12 & 13 - Different Cultures Poetry = No Problem & Education for Leisure

KS3 - Lessons 11, 12 & 13 - Different Cultures Poetry = No Problem & Education for Leisure

This is a Year 8 (aimed at higher ability students) scheme of work lessons 11, 12 and 13 No Problem by Benjamin Zephaniah and then Education for Leisure. The poems in lessons 10 - 13 are contrasting looking at race and how cultures, identity and race fit together. I think there is too much here again but students did enjoy comparing Strange Fruit (lesson 10), No Problem and Education for Leisure and they then look at race over the years and how race and racism has evolved. This isn't in a lesson but could be added on!

KS3 - Lessons 4, 5, 6, 7 Similes, Blessing, Onomatopoeia, etc - Different Cultures Poetry

KS3 - Lessons 4, 5, 6, 7 Similes, Blessing, Onomatopoeia, etc - Different Cultures Poetry

This is a Year 8 (aimed at higher ability students) scheme of work lesson 4, 5, 6, & 7: - Lesson 4 = similes in poetry - Lesson 5 = Blessing (first poem encompassing everything learnt so far from lessons 1-4) - Lesson 6 & 7 = Search for my Tongue (looking at a different poem encompassing everything learnt so far from lessons 1-5 and can begin to look at similarities and differences between Blessing and Search for my Tongue). Success criteria throughout for the students to self assess themselves to take more responsibility for their own learning. I think there is too much here for a lesson (in each one and this is not a bad thing) but my students enjoyed it! :) The rest of the lessons are available to purchase.

KS3 Different Cultures Poetry Lessons 1 - 14

KS3 Different Cultures Poetry Lessons 1 - 14

This bundle introduces Different Cultures Poetry to Key Stage 3 (aimed at a higher ability Year 8 class) looking at following the AQA GCSE comparing poetry exam. There are two big assessments in this - one ‘warm’ task comparing Blessing to Night at the Scorpion and then at the end (although no lesson) the hot task would be comparing with a choice of Strange Fruit, No Problem, or Education for Leisure. Students begin by looking at what is culture and what is identity - then they move to poetic techniques bit by bit, then the poems. Half way through, the students are then introduced to poem structure before finishing off the SOW with the final assessment. For some lessons, I think there is too much for one lesson (which means you’re getting more lessons for your money ;] but not a bad thing) and some parts are really challenging. I have used a mixture of ‘old/known’ poems and newer ones but ones that will keep up with cultural issues from years before and today. All lessons have the same background to keep it consistent and all have a ‘Do It Now’, a learning objective and a plenary! Some lessons have success criteria for the students to self assess themselves to ensure they are becoming more independent in their learning. Hope this is helpful and you enjoy it!
