English Literary Quiz - End of Term/Year

English Literary Quiz - End of Term/Year

This is a 256 slide ppt - broken up into 5 parts of 25 literary related questions in each. Each part is followed by the answers. Subjects include first lines, authors, strange literary facts, numbers in literature, places in literature, word scramble and literary characters. Each part also has a picture round as well including who's the author, guess the literature-inspired film and guess the title. There are 163 possible points to gain in this game which could be played in teams in your English class. This would work well for year 11, 12 or 13 and is a great end of term lesson. It could easily last two lessons. There are many questions from the canon, but I've also included contemporary authors and books.

Political Correctness AS/A2 English Language

Political Correctness AS/A2 English Language

This is a political correctness lesson (it should take 2-3 hours) that looks at both side of the argument. It is from my Language Change scheme of work, however, it also includes both 'Language Under the Microscope' exam practice and 'Writing About a Topical Issue' exam practice. Though it could be used with a variety of exam boards, it was created with the OCR AS/A2 exam specifications in mind.

A Streetcar Named Desire Introduction AS Literature

A Streetcar Named Desire Introduction AS Literature

This is a lesson I do on induction day with incoming year 12 students to help introduce them to elements of the specification as well as they type of text they will be reading. Because of the style of lesson, it could last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes depending on how much time you give them to annotate the play. This could also work as an introduction lesson to A Streetcar Named Desire when you begin it. I follow the OCR specification.

1984 (Nineteen Eighty-Four) and Dystopian Introduction Activity

This is a lesson I do on induction day with incoming year 12 students to help introduce them to elements of the specification as well as dystopian conventions and the novel, 1984. It would also work as an introduction lesson to 1984 and the dystopian genre. I do the OCR specification.

Twelfth Night: Outstanding Lesson

Twelfth Night: Outstanding Lesson

This is a lesson that I did with a Year 12 AS Literature class during our area review and received an outstanding. It was the third lesson in a 6 week scheme of work and has the students consider characterisation and the theme of love. It also helps prepare them for the exam in that it gives them an exemplar paragraph and has them writing their own. I think this lesson would work even better if students were given two days to do it.

Maud by Alfred, Lord Tennyson KS5 Literature OCR

Maud by Alfred, Lord Tennyson KS5 Literature OCR

This is a complete scheme of work for Tennyson's poem, Maud which is on the AS OCR specification. I have broken up the poem into 18 teachable parts; I have created engaging lessons complete with starters, plenaries, and tasks, Included are three copies of Maud: the original, a fully annotated copy for the teacher and a copy for the students where every other part is annotated (links with the lesson plans). There's a scheme of work, introductory lessons, comprehension questions, wall display, final lessons that include exam based preparation, over 15 exam questions and multiple exemplars throughout. My aim was to make Maud approachable and engaging while still challenging the students. This resource is packed with everything you need from start to finish: it covers at least 36 one hour lessons.
