Students could answer in books or whiteboards. With my classes, I kept a running score and gave out rewards for getting 5/5.
At first my classes were disheartened with getting less than 5/5 but after a few weeks they could see they were improving and that motivated them.
Texts included are: Romeo and Juliet, An Inspector Calls, Power and Conflict Poetry
MORE QUESTIONS ADDED
Key vocabulary to help students analyse four key characters in An Inspector Calls (Mr and Mrs Birling, Sheila Birling and Gerald Croft).
Good for first learning about the characters and then later for revision.
To be used when studying the plot of A Christmas Carol for the new AQA Lit Spec. Use alongside the 1984 George C Scott film version. Students can fill in the boxes with plot point and then to push their thinking they can add quotes from the book for each stave.
This can be used to get students thinking more carefully about physical descriptions of characters. I used this as a way to introduce what a professionally written character sounded like to them first and then I got them to look for words and phrases that were used to describe the characters faces.
I used this as a guide to help students analyse poems we have studied. Some times, depending on the class, I will walk them through the sheet together or if they are confident enough they will complete it themselves. The sheets have more or less support on depending on ability - tough, tougher, toughest.
Using the AQA mark scheme I have changed the criteria into 'student speak'. Each stage (pass, merit or distinction) has a simplified version to help students understand what is expected of them. The worksheet can be used in multiple ways from assessing a humorous speech such as Smithy's Coach of the Year acceptance or a serious historical speech.
