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

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.

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.

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!

This is the final Othello lesson in the Shakespeare's villains SOW for Year 9 I have made. All lessons are available in a bundle to purchase (I think there are roughly 20 lessons in all). This is the evaluation GCSE AQA Q4 paper 1 lesson which Year 9's are being introduced to. They have to evaluate who is the ultimate villain from a statement given. Self assessment, planning, etc are included in this as well as videos from YouTube to help the students understand. This is the lesson before their final assessment where they will assess who is the ultimate villain out of the lessons in this SOW: Romeo, Mercutio, Tybalt, Macbeth, The Witches, Marc Anthony, Brutus, Iago or Othello from the range of Shakespeare's plays provided. All lessons available in a bundle deal. All lessons although say 1 lesson should have way more in them and I think will take longer, hence you have more for your money. There is also a writing SOW I am working on that will be uploaded once I have finished as well which I will combine in to a separate bundle for you. There deal with introducing more of the female villains in Shakespeare's plays.

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!

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!
