AQA Poetry Revision Workbook

AQA Poetry Revision Workbook

Note: the current file is set up for POWER AND CONFLICT> you can change this by just changing the titles to LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS and changing the titles of the poems throughout! A completely editable revision booklet that allows the student to break down the poem into various sections: 1. The importance of title and structure: students are given guiding questions to answer. 2. Developing meaning 3. Imagery and Language Devices 4. Word choice relating to theme 5. Context and themes 6. Practice questions: Students identify the two poems they will be comparing and which theme they will address based on their previous answers> Teachers can fill in these questions for them OR assign them as a weekly homework task. 7. Self Assess> in this section students are expected to fill in a grid of three criteria they want to meet, how they have met it in their answer and how they are going to improve. I have purposely left the criteria blank as it will greatly depend on the skill level of the student. Note: This booklet can be used alongside teaching the poems instead of revision.

AQA Christmas Carol Trivia Game

AQA Christmas Carol Trivia Game

An excellent trivia game that helps refresh key themes, quotations, messages, characters, and symbols from A Christmas Carol. I like to play it in teams of two: I have put answers with it but of course the teacher is free to take other answers if they see fit. Teams have to work through a series of categories and various levels of difficulty to gain the most points. My students love this for revision. I have also used it as 'silent work' where each student picks a category and question and then the entire class must answer on paper silently. At the end we take up the answers and each person gives themselves a score to see how they've done.
