This computer quest (or game) can be used before reading Holes to gain interest of pupils or afterwards as a treat. It would also work well as a stand alone library/ICT activity- teaching students to use links/read information, etc. I know the instructions appear complicated but once its done it's a fab resource! PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT.
A worksheet that encourages students to revise Moniza Alvi's poem 'Presents from My Aunts in Pakistan&' for GCSE. It has a copy of the poem and a series of annotations that require completion. Based on The Poems From Different Cultures Anthology.
This scheme of work was created by myself. It has all resources and instructions on how to teach them. Rather than doing lesson plans I have split the teaching instructions into sections, allowing you to choose which activities to do. It has ALL resources, instructions and includes AFL, ideas for differentiating resources and so on. I hope this helps someone. PLEASE RATE as I have spent a lot of time on this,
I made this video to help pupils see the poem from my own perspective. With poetry, all of us have our own ideas so if you dont feel the images/music go with the poem then please do not make a negative comment. Poetry is written to reach out to us in different ways. I hope you find it useful- my last year 11s loved it! CAN YOU ALSO RATE OR LEAVE A COMMENT. Thanks- it's nice to know if others have found my resource useful.
A whole scheme of work and DIFFERENTIATED resources to teach persuasive writing and presentational devices unit to students. A creative topic that allows students to have fun as well as learn! Although I use this with my year 7s, it would be suitable for Year 8 and 9. I would also use it with a bottom set GCSE group as it covers most aspects of Paper 1 for AQA Eng. I have uploaded new schemes on The Tempest, posters for assessment and a spelling booklet to engage students!
This scheme of work has detailed 3 part lesson plans along with most of the resources to allow instant teaching! It is fun, creative and really encourages pupils to work on their independent learning and confidence in English. THE ACTIVSTUDIO resources are also available to download on this page! With regards to the correct use of deduce/imply/infer... What can I say? I wrote this during my teacher training year so shoot me for this error and change as required! :)
The spelling booklet has now evolved. If you have used my previous resource, your pupils should now have some skills in memorising spellings. They can be used during form time/registration, to fit in across the curriculum This resource contains: word lists ready to be photocopied, some hints to memorise tricky spellings, plenary activities, interactive games for each word list, cloze exercises to show PROGRESS for Ofsted *Please note when you open the powerpoint there will be music/noise for a few seconds- it's the macros.Macros must be enabled to use the games.*
Fun starter to exercise students' memory and introduce them to new vocabulary words. Culminates in a descriptive writing exercise.
