Transactional Writing: Lively Article

(0)
This is a set of two lessons getting pupils to plan, write and improve their own lively article. I use this set of lessons as a revision of the form to keep the conventions fresh in pupil's minds. I planned these lessons in line with the EDUQAS Language paper 2 tasks, but there would be no significant adjustments required for any other exam board. No additional resources are required for these lessons, but you will need to mark the work that they produce between lesson one and lesson two. For the DIRT lesson to work with the presentation, pupils need a comment, a question, a target and accuracy marking.
