KS3 Lower Ability SEN Macbeth - Act 1 Scene 2 - Character and Soldiers

KS3 Lower Ability SEN Macbeth - Act 1 Scene 2 - Character and Soldiers

These three lessons were created for a very low ability SEN Year 8 class. They focus on comprehension and building working memory skills through over-teaching. Resources have been differentiated for some students who struggle to write words and sentences but the extension is there for those who are ready to make some independent inferences.

Othello - Lesson 5 - Act 1 Scene 3 - Morality Plays (Evil and Dark vs Light) + Practice Q

Othello - Lesson 5 - Act 1 Scene 3 - Morality Plays (Evil and Dark vs Light) + Practice Q

This is a double lesson if you include reading and annotation. This lesson opens considering a key quote from the assigned reading and literary criticism from Lesson 4. It then builds on students knowledge of Iago and introduces the 'Vice' character in morality plays. After a class reading of Act I Scene III, students are then asked to reflect on other 'dramatic' methods in Act I that suggest evil (e.g. the night time setting and Iago speaking in the shadows) and Aristotle's Three Unities. In preparation for a mock exam, this lesson also includes a practice exam question and a review of how to structure a response.

Othello - Lesson 3 - Act 1 Scene 1 - Character Jigsaw & SQIDDIQS

This lesson is meant to review and build on students understanding of 1.1 by completing a character carousel (see Word Document) as well as introduce them to a paragraph writing frame (SQIDDIQS) for extended responses which focuses on addressing the AOs. A homework task is included at the end to consolidate the work completed in the jigsaw. I really enjoyed teaching this lesson and the students loved the writing frame. Hope you enjoy too!
