Creative writing formats - play scripts and letters

Creative writing formats - play scripts and letters

A pdf for handout or presentation on formal letters, and a detailed look at play scripts and how to format them, using two exemplars (one of which is from a past pupil). I have used both of these formats to differentiate GCSE English Language creative writing: for pupils who struggle with story structure, they can write a series of letters, or a letter and a reply, based upon characters they know from novels they've studied. Scriptwriting is excellent for gifted and talented pupils who find short story composition not challenging enough. Drama pupils will also benefit from the analysis in the scriptwriting section of how setting and stage directions function. This will aid GCSE and A-level pupils compose their own scripts (I adapted this from a course I taught in first-year university). For KS3 Communication, I used this letter-writing framework for final assessment on novel (so, can be adapted to mark either Reading or Writing as a Key Curriculum Skill).

Homer's Odyssey Study Map: Leadership

Homer's Odyssey Study Map: Leadership

A comprehensive study map in two parts, addressing the statement that Odysseus's men all die because of his poor leadership skills. Based upon a past-paper mark scheme, I look at the argument from both sides, covering books 9 - 12. These study maps can be completed by pupils individually as revision. I would recommend spending class time letting pupils gather their responses in pairs or groups at first, and then chair a whole-class discussion based upon my completed versions, included here as teacher's answers. Pupils can then produce a final version of the completed study map for their reference.

Introductory lesson to the study of spoken language/language techniques/speeches

Introductory lesson to the study of spoken language/language techniques/speeches

A selection of resources for a first lesson on spoken language/speeches, using Wordles and active learning - visual, audio, and movement. Lesson objective: Understand that different types of speech can be made, and identify key indicators of purpose, audience, and context. Print and laminate the Wordles and display them around the room, numbering them clearly, then work your way through the 6 presentations for the whole lesson. I have had fantastic results using this for GCSE level English Language. If the videos fail to play (they are quite big files, exported from my original Keynote into PowerPoint!), then search YouTube for the speeches: when studying the spoken word - and especially in an introductory lesson like this - it is important that pupils listen to language, and don't just read transcriptions of it. They must gain experience of pace, tone, volume, and pauses in order to analyse effective use of spoken language. (I've also made a PowerPoint of 'Just Wordles' in case the embedded videos cause problems, and you could have another window open on YouTube with the videos open in different tabs, and then just swap between the presentation and the browser - I had to do this once when the school's IT systems were playing up!) As an English teacher, I also kept these up in my classroom afterwards as inspirational posters.

The Study of Spoken Language / Language Techniques / Speeches -Obama's 2008 Victory Speech

The Study of Spoken Language / Language Techniques / Speeches -Obama's 2008 Victory Speech

A detailed handout on the context and content of Obama's 2008 presidential victory speech, for the study of language techniques and spoken language / inspirational speeches. Also included is a hexagon activity, which my GCSE pupils always love - in groups, pupils must debate and defend their reasoning behind matching up and making shapes with the hexagons, displaying different levels of Bloom's taxonomy with regard to which hexagons touch which others. I hope the hexagons haven't moved in the documents; some text boxes might need enlarging if Word changes the font. Print out the hexagons and laminate, and enjoy pupils' presentations to the class of their final patterns!
