Language Techniques - Tables and tasks

Well here is a little number to help your classes with those all important language devices for creative and persuasive writing. It will also help them learn all the language techniques ready for identifying them in novels and poems. In this pack there is a full table with the Language Teachniques, definitions and examples. The other two sheets are for the students to fill in during the lesson to help them build a work bank of these language techniques. I did this with my class and then set learning them for homework. They then were tested to see if they could spot examples of techniques and their meaning. Really simple, but beneficial resource.

Macbeth Essay - Violence (AQA)

If you’re looking to show your class a top level Macbeth essay 25/30 AQA, then look no further. I wrote this essay for my class to show them how you can link your ideas throughout your essay to show thoughtful and developed analysis with examined methods and top mark contexts. A great reminder of what a whole essay looks like for your class. (Please note the extract is not included in the price, this is just to show you what the question is based on.)

Identifying AFOREST Techniques

This lesson will help students to identify AFOREST Techniques using Martin Luther King's speech and prior knowledge matching cards. As you can see above this pack includes a powerpoint lesson, MLK speech for the students to use, MLK speech annotated for the teacher, and AFOREST matching cards for the starter activity. This lesson has worked really well with my Y8s and 9s. It could also be used for Y7.
PEE and Assessment Preparation - A Christmas Carol

PEE and Assessment Preparation - A Christmas Carol

(0)
PEE preparation power point for A Christmas Carol. This Power point goes very well with 'The Little Book of PEE For A Christmas Carol' as it takes students through the question they will be answering and includes PEE structures, model paragraphs, and a mark scheme (Based on the new 1-9). However it also works as a standalone resource, as it goes through how to pick out key quotations in a text, and leaves the teacher room to analyse them with the students.

AFOREST Techniques - Adverts and Leaflets

(1)
Here is an AFOREST lesson that gets students to pick out the persuasive techniques they can see in an advert. It then goes onto analysing leaflets; for this I usually go and grab a handful of leaflets from the Tourist Information or a service station. Then you can use the middle part of the lesson and the work sheets to get students to identify and explain persuasive techniques used. This is a great lesson if your students are creating a leaflet or brochure for their assessment. It has always worked really well with Y7 and 8s.

Creating a charity

This is like a mini project as you will probably need three lessons to complete the task and students presentation. This lesson starts by asking the students questions that they have to think about when watching the news clips about refugees (internet access needed) The next slide tells the students what their task is and shows them other charities that are available to refugees at the moment. The final slide gives students a success criteria which they need to follow. This lesson aims to show students what being a refugee is a like and how we as a country could help.

A Christmas Carol - Introduction for Low Ability

We all have those classes who need that extra bit of guidance when it comes to PEE, and that need reminding of the key descriptive words in A Christmas Carol. Here we have a very basic lesson with a wordsearch and questions all on Stave One of A Christmas Carol. These could be used as two separate starters or just as a simple lesson to get the students remembering the key sections of Stave One. For very low ability.

Of Mice and Men - Candy's Dog dies lesson on Structure and Language

(0)
Stuck teaching your class about structure and language for the new spec? Look no further! Here is a fantastic lesson pack that takes the class through how to answer the following question: How successful is Steinbeck at creating tension when Candy’s dog dies? In this pack you will find a power point presentation that is ready to go, as it guides the class through the extract (attached) and how they should annotate it. It then talks them through answering the question using PEE questions and PEE sentence starters. If that doesn't hit the spot, then wait until you see the two page top mark model answer that can be shown to that class to mark and then get them marking their own. This model answer includes, three structure model paragraphs on this question and two language/language device paragraphs. It comes together to create a full fabulous answer. The mark scheme for this is also included. This has helped my class massively, I hope it helps yours too.
Newspaper Writing Lesson Pack - Persuasive language

Newspaper Writing Lesson Pack - Persuasive language

(0)
This is a adapted version of my Persuasive Leaflet Lesson. Instead this is all based around writing newspaper articles. It also has extra resources such as an article to annotate and another lesson where they put their new found knowledge into their own article. (Please see free resources for several newspaper templates, if needed) In this pack you will find two power point presentations that are both on revising persuasive language devices and then trying to find them in an article. (Please note this is an article I have got online and put into a newspaper article format with images)The only difference between the top two power points is one gives the examples and definitions to the class and the HA one asks the class questions to challenge them to remember. To go with this lesson there is the article and a hand-out sheet that the class can fill in when looking at the article. This gives them questions to answer about the article to help them identify the features and devices used in a persuasive article. After the class has completed this lesson, you will want to know if they now can apply their learnt skills to their own article. Please find attached the 'Practising Writing a Persuasive Newspaper Article Lesson' which will give them information (Short video online - not necessarily needed, but link available) and a success criteria on how to write an article. Please see free resources for newspaper templates. This really helped prepare my class for an assessment on newspaper articles. The engaging tops such as homework stress article and too many assessments information got them talking and interested.

Here are four essay plans for ACC. I created these for my Y11 in the lead up to their exams - they are great for showing students how to look at multiple meanings of keywords and how they are used as methods. Context is added on some of them, but they are mainly for showing analysis. Questions planned in PPT: Starting with this extract, how are the ghosts presented as a catalyst (promote and build up to) for Scrooges transformation? Starting with this extract, how does Dickens present Scrooge’s relationship with his family? Starting with this extract, how does Dickens present the Ghost of Jacob Marley? Starting with this extract, how does Dickens present society’s attitude to poverty? Happy planning!
