AQA 9-1 Grade Paper 1, Structure Question 3 =  Four Lessons Teaching & Booklet

AQA 9-1 Grade Paper 1, Structure Question 3 = Four Lessons Teaching & Booklet

(0)
3-4 hours (depending on group size/ability) plus a 25 page work booklet getting students to look at structure in more detail. Three lessons: Structure Question 3 whole lesson with peer assessment, AQA style example answer, help sheets and further activities. Great for beginning to teach structure for Year 9 or for Years 10 & 11 as well. Paper 1, question 3, 8 marks. The booklet has been designed as an independent study for students to go through and think about structure and how to use it. It’s roughly 25 pages long and a work booklet. It can also be used as revision as well. The ‘LOVEFIELD’ lesson worked really well and my Year 11’s (although they had no extract) could analyse structure using the pictures as the quotations. They really enjoyed ordering the slides and justifying why before watching the actual film. Then we did the Harry potter assessment question. The PDF file is a hand written student answer using the ‘Hale’ extract from a GCSE paper (sorry, have forgotten which paper date!) which was given 6/8 but it is blank and hasn’t been marked so students could have a look at it and peer assess before they create their own one. One of the lessons discusses how students can use computers to have a look at the opening or a clip of a film and identify structural features.

A Level The Handmaid's Tale Questions Chapter by Chapter

(1)
Great for guided reading or independent study. Takes the class through questions from each chapters picking out the obvious and the less obvious and beginning to encourage students to read outside of the novel more and focus on the finer details. Could be one lesson or homework or research after reading. :)

AQA Grade 9-1 Paper 1, Question 4 Jaws Extract Year 10/11 Language

AQA Grade 9-1 Paper 1, Question 4 Jaws Extract Year 10/11 Language

(0)
I used the Jaws extract origionally for Question 4 Paper 1. We first looked at this clip on YouTube before I gave them the extract (it’s a different one to the extract as the extract one was too explicit): and then we spoke about why we would feel tension, how the mothers were feeling, how people in the sea would be feeling and how we could feel if a shark came towards us. Then I introduced the Jaws extract. We went through and identified language techniques and what effect they would have on the reader. I then spoke about what we could notice about both sides of the story; the shark and the woman. Was it right the woman went in the water at night and what clues did the writer give us about what could happen? Then I introduced the question and we planned, modelled and then wrote an answer to it. What I did realise was that the students were automatically identifying both language and structural features so we used the same extract to answer these: –> How does the writer use language to portray the ocean? –> Look at the whole source. How has the source been structured to interest you as a reader? The students were interested and got so much out of it. I then gave them an image (that I thought could be linked to the analysis we had done) and they had to write a description based on the image, not a narrative.
Whole School + Teacher CPD Training Improving Oracy in the Classroom

Whole School + Teacher CPD Training Improving Oracy in the Classroom

(2)
*** UPDATED: I have added a Key Stage 3 Oracy Self Assessment Grid and a Key Stage 3 Oracy Presentation and Oracy Tips & Tricks (all can be adapted for any years or used whole school)*** Improving Oracy in the Classroom. An introduction to oracy and strategies to improve it in the classroom setting. Powerpoint and a couple of booklets. I delivered this on a whole school level and on a Twilight training hour CPD level to a range of teachers, TA's, SLT and support staff. The house activity is to be given out the first with NO CRITERIA to see if people can draw a house and mark each other's work. The second house activity is to draw a house WITH THE CRITERIA and then mark each other's work. Basically, the whole point being that if we have criteria then we understand how to use it to develop ourselves as people. Similarly, if there are members of SLT, teachers, TA's support staff, etc using Oracy properly with criteria (displays, class rules, etc) then student's writing and speaking will improve naturally.

42 Grammar Homework Starter Tasks Key Stage 3

(0)
If you have purchased my Literacy booklets, some of these tasks are the same in here I have created 42 one sided grammar homework or starter activities for students at a Key Stage 3 level. One of the things we found when marking mid-high ability was that their vocabulary, stories, content was really fabulous, but their grammar and way of writing was no. There are a range of activities as they have been created to be used once a week with lots of classes. Each one is printable or can be uploaded on to your learning platforms for schools. All documents can be edited. Thank you for looking!

x10 KS3 Library Lesson Reading Task Booklet

(0)
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. The booklet is designed to get the students to reflect and think about their reading and learning whilst being quite creative at the same time. None of these talk about a chapter summary, but the teacher will incorporate them into their lessons.

Literacy AQA Style 30 Page Work Booklet 1 Suitable for Years 9-11

(0)
I have taken the AQA Paper 1 questions 1, 2 and 5 (List 4 things, language analysis and creative writing) and turned them in to a 30 page Literacy booklet. The first half of the booklet consists of language analysis and revision with shorter activities and then the booklet gets progressively harder. The questions turn in to more comprehension based with AQA style questions. There are 4 extracts and lined paper for them to write on. I think this would be suitable for years 9-11 but if you had a very able Years 7 or 8 class, this would challenge them also. Other activities have been put in such as reading activities, thesaurus work and language technique match up to break the booklet up slightly. Extracts are from The Maze Runner, Jane Eyre, Harry Potter and Great Expectations for students to read a range of texts and genres.
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

14 Resources
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! :)

Attached is a 9 slide powerpoint and 2 worksheets focusing on 'How does the writer use language to create a strong atmosphere in this extract?' looking at Hagrid's character when he bursts in to take Harry to Hogwarts. I have used this as practice with my Year 10's on structuring PEE paragraphs and language revision, but I have also used it with my Year 7's and 9's to get them used to essay writing for their end of year exams.
