Reading Non-fiction - Eduqas GCSE English Language Component 2 Section A

Reading Non-fiction - Eduqas GCSE English Language Component 2 Section A

(0)
Comprehensive tried and tested scheme of work based on Eduqas GCSE English Language Component 2 - 19 & 21C Reading Non-fiction. Fully resourced unit which seeks to ‘walk through’ Section A of a Component 2 paper exploring approaches to different question ‘types’ from A1 to A6. The scheme is taught through a single 104-slide powerpoint which directs students to various worksheets and reading activities that help consolidate their approach to each question (see ‘Key Skills Grid’). Aimed at Year 9 as an introduction to GCSE but equally relevant to Year 10-11 depending on how and when students are exposed to full papers. I have used an Eduqas published paper on nursing to act as the model and sourced extracts from elsewhere to allow students to practice. There is also a prison themed paper included for students to attempt either as a summative assessment or extension task/homework though plenty are available online should this not be appropriate.
Victorian Murder Poetry Scheme of Work

Victorian Murder Poetry Scheme of Work

(0)
Scheme of work aimed at Year 8 but equally useful/adaptable to suit other year groups, including GCSE. Central 54-slide powerpoint provides discussion and enquiry into three poems - dramatic monologues - from the Victorian age, all of which involve murder and madness - so engaging for KS3. 3 x planned homework tasks and two assessment points - the first a formative assessment with feedback flier and a summative assessment with a more detailed marksheet to grade students according to pathways. Key focus is comparison and two tables are included to help students structure their answer with an eye on GCSE English Literature essay writing skills. Stimulating, visual material and intuitive staggering of skills. Anthology booklet containing the three poems and other information is also provided.

Extensive scheme of work aimed at Year 8/KS3. Powerpoint addresses a range of issues from the play as well as exploring character and events. Each act and scene is objective focused and begins with a starter activity which allows students to talk about an issue before addressing it in the play. Interwoven in the powerpoint are a range of reading and writing assessments, the former worded in the style of GCSE/KS4 examination questions. Powerpoint comes with accompanying study booklet which contains key scenes from the play, some in full, others edited down.

Each speech also is supported by a short glossary at the bottom of any usual words students may not understand. Key words included in powerpoint as a recall and retrieval exercise.

An accompanying Study Booklet contains extracts from a range of Sherlock Holmes stories with two examples covering each of the four focus areas. The booklet also includes Simon Armitage’s poem, About his Person and sophisticated language prompts to help with creative writing.
Year 8 Reading Assessment - The Daydreamer
i-edify19i-edify19

Year 8 Reading Assessment - The Daydreamer

(0)
Year 8 reading assessment designed to accompany the Eduqas age-related assessment entitled, The Daydreamer (see their website.) The answer booklet has been published here more or less unchanged except for the ‘glue here’ pages front and back. The powerpoint ‘walks through’ the paper offering teachers the opportunity to teach the skills or simply help students self/peer mark their work following examination. I use ‘The Leopard’ reading paper resources (available to purchase in my shop) as a formative assessment to teach through and then give students ‘The Daydreamer’ as their summative.

i-edify19i-edify19

Macbeth Homework Act 1-5

(0)
Macbeth homework worksheets for each of the five acts of the play. Simple question format indicating which scene each question is referring to within the act to help students consolidate their knowledge of events and play away from the classroom. Used primarily as an aide memoire following reading and discussion of act/scene in class. Designed so that students can still answer questions without recourse to play text but obviously better if they can access them for quotes. I have used these in class with lower ability students to help embed plot and characterisation, so adaptable as in class teaching resources as well as homework.
