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.
Using an extract from John Greens Looking for Alaska, this lesson takes students through Q1, Q2, AND Q3 using model answers, sentence starters and scaffolds. It is a good lesson to refresh students on each question and because it features a very modern text they tend to be more engaged.

This was used for a set 4 but can be moderated for higher and lower sets.
Introduction to the context of Victorian England. Students will be given a character that relates to a person in Victorian England. As they learn about the context they will learn what might have happened to their character as time goes on. After each bit of information they have to discuss the changes with their partner, infer what might happen next, and fill in their chart that tracks the changes and feelings.
At the end students will analyse context as whole.
Lots of ways to stretch and challenge.

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.
