PEE paragraphs Wonder

PEE paragraphs Wonder

(1)
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!

Macbeth Hot Seating (Act 5, Scene 3)

(0)
This fun 1 hour 30 minute lesson includes 2 worksheets and can be spread over one or two lessons depending on the level of detail you want in the interview. Great for revision session, or for pupils who are approaching the end of the play and need a recap. The lesson focuses on AO2 in the drama question: Comment on their actions in the play, words they might say, values and attitudes using the text to help you gather ideas. My experience is that pupils get very involved and even those who are more reticent about acting can take part. Some of the questions they ask can be quite advanced and it really gets them thinking about the character’s different points of view. Weaker pupils benefit from the opportunity to review events in the play up until this point.

A View from the Bridge - answering passage based questions

(0)
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.
