This lesson plan uses a mix of scaffolding and SOLO taxonomy methods to support an essay on Macbeth. It starts with the wider question then works back to help pupils identify how best to approach the question, ensuring points are tightly linked to the question and avoiding repetitive structures.

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!

Facebook Addicts

(0)
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.

jennytorniainenjennytorniainen

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

(0)
This resource is designed for teachers who want to ensure that the pupils are making analytical comments in PEE paragraphs, 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.
A View from the Bridge - answering passage based questions
jennytorniainenjennytorniainen

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.
PEE Paragraphs - Last Sonnet by John Keats
jennytorniainenjennytorniainen

PEE Paragraphs - Last Sonnet by John Keats

(0)
1.5 hour lesson is aimed at KS3, GCSE and possibly A Level pupils who need a bit of an extra helping hand constructing PEE paragraphs based on poetry. It was inspired by the fact that I had read one too many poems where pupils simply ‘translate’ the surface meaning of poem into simple English without really analysing the poem in any way. It could be adapted to another poem relatively easily.

jennytorniainenjennytorniainen

Cambridge IGCSE Summary writing (Papers 1 and 2)

(0)
A 3 hours, differentiated lesson. Contains an interactive information exchange activity, the purpose of which helps to highlight to pupils the importance of efficient and clear summary points. Tried and tested with great success - I can confirm that pupils were really motivated by this and I have never seem them so eager to write a summary before! I recommend preparing a prize for the winning team as this helps spur them on even more. This lesson plan could also be used as a basis for a PSHE class on healthy lifestyle as it deals with the need to get a good night’s sleep, the impact of not sleeping and how best to ensure the sleep we get is restful.
