Poetry analysis scheme of work for AS and A Level - Songs of Ourselves Vol 2

Poetry analysis scheme of work for AS and A Level - Songs of Ourselves Vol 2

This presentation looks at genre, form, structure and language for poetry at AS and A Level. It is based on the Songs of Ourselves Volume 2 Anthology, but could easily be adapted to suit other poetry modules at this level. It could also assist with poetry at GCSE as it covers all the main elements for approaching and analysing poetry. Please do leave a review so that I can continue to improve my products.

What is a comment (how to analyse a quote) - Macbeth

What is a comment (how to analyse a quote) - Macbeth

This resource is designed for teachers who want to ensure that the pupils are making analytical comments, rather than falling into the trap of simply summarising the narrative or explaning the action occuring on stage or in the story. It is based on Macbeth but could easily be adapted to another text.

PEE paragraphs Wonder

PEE paragraphs Wonder

This is a resource for teachers of KS3 who need a bit of extra help getting pupils to write PEE paragraphs at this level. It deals with the elements of a good PEE paragraph, breaking down what a point is, looking at how to select appropriate evidence and finally how to explore and analyse the quote in detail. It is based on the novel Wonder by RJ Palacio, but could be adapted to suit another text as necessary. I have used this format with my KS3 classes and the results have been fantastic!

A View from the Bridge - answering passage based questions

A View from the Bridge - answering passage based questions

This resource is designed as a group activity for students to practise close reading of a passage in preparation for the GCSE passage based questions. After a brief run through of what is required in the exam, pupils work in groups to analyse a passage from the play, which advice on what to look for. This then feeds into an essay planning process (again in groups) and finishes with peer assessment. I've had some really positive results and the essay plans students produced as a result were A* standard! They can be asked to write up the essay as homework, or explore another passage, depending on how confident they felt at the end. This resource also works well if used in conjunction with my other resource on PEE paragraphs on A View from the Bridge.

Facebook Addicts

Facebook Addicts

This lesson is based on an article that discusses addictions to social media. It is designed to mimic the Cambridge extended Language paper for Reading (papers 1 & 2: Core and Extended) and the Writing (paper 3). It uses one source text (as opposed to two for the reading and 1 for the writing paper). Initial activities are meant to help pupils access and understand the meaning of the text, whilst enhancing their vocabulary, whereas the later activities are replicas of the questions they would be asked in the Reading and then Writing exam. It could equally be used as the basis for a PSHE discussion regarding sensible use of social media.
