GCSE English - Language Features in Pop Music Quiz with Worksheet

GCSE English - Language Features in Pop Music Quiz with Worksheet

This was used as an end of term lesson for GCSE English Language students. We did the music quiz in teams against each other (they have repetition, simile, metaphor, alliteration, rule of three, hyperbole etc to identify), then there is the option to either look at language features in Katy Perry's Firework or Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody (alter PPT accordingly). Songs used include Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Usher, Justin Bieber, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Queen, Adele, Green Day, Chris Brown and Take That.

Christmas Activities - GCSE English - Creative Writing includes video, storyboard and adverts

Christmas Activities - GCSE English - Creative Writing includes video, storyboard and adverts

Christmas activities for GCSE students, could also be used with younger secondary students. Includes storyboarding based on Robbie the Reindeer and a selection of Christmas adverts as writing stimuli (my classes will each vote on which advert to use, so each class will only do one rather than all four). The quiz at the end is not included - it can be a quiz of your own. I have chosen to use the quiz made by Ali Chishti (available on TES - resource 11439509) which can be purchased from Ali for £2 (a bargain when you see how amazing it is!)

Level 2 Functional Skills Speaking and Listening - Discussion and Presentations

Level 2 Functional Skills Speaking and Listening - Discussion and Presentations

This activity is for the summative assessment of the Level 2 Speaking and Listening unit. It contains an activity where students can discuss what makes a good presentation (can be used to assess the formal discussion element) then students can give their presentations, which can also be peer assessed against the previous discussion, whilst being formally assessed by the teacher. The activity will need to be cut out so that students can rearrange the tiles. This lesson was observed by an Ofsted inspector who graded it as outstanding, and the best speaking and listening assessments he had seen. It can be used with any groups, it is very versatile for vocational or academic students.

6-Week Scheme of Work - Of Mice and Men - Places and Settings

6-Week Scheme of Work - Of Mice and Men - Places and Settings

This scheme of work is designed for FE retakes of GCSE English Language, whereby Of Mice and Men is only covered for a short 6-week period. The students should have already covered the novella during their original GCSE teaching in Years 10 & 11, so should have prior knowledge of the plot, characters etc. It is intended that they take their Extended Reading controlled assessment at the end of the scheme. Please note, some resources such as the bunkhouse paragraph and Blockbusters game (uploaded to TES by user: jamiejemiah) are not my own, however the scheme is.
