A tutorial on body image. I've used it with year 8 - a double PSHE lesson, but it can be used for other year groups. Includes little activities for students to complete in small groups.
AQA Introduction to A’level study of combined English Language and English Literature. This thirty lesson, six-week scheme of learning with 30 powerpoints and resources is designed to help students in a fun way to make a smooth transition between GCSE and A’level. It both builds onto and revises GCSE English literature and language skills, introducing linguistic and literary frames of analysis necessary for the study of the AQA Paris Anthology. Each week introduces a new frame and short exercises using quality extracts which build to the study of a variety of the Paris anthology texts with both the spoken and written modes. A quick cultural capital exercise and quizzes are included in each lesson, further helping disadvantaged students to bridge the gap.
A detailed lesson (or series of lessons depending on time restraints), where students explore a series of important extracts focusing on St John, Hannah and the rest of the Rivers family. Suggests background reading and possible examination questions for both section A and B.
Powerpoint on parts of speech, sentence types and punctuation. Can be downloaded for students to use themselves to remind them of the basics as part of their independent learning.
Highlights key passages to analyse - suggested background reading to increase students' general knowledge about critical essays and gives example questions for homework tasks.
Again, linked with PSHE on body image, this week focuses on 'writing to argue&'. The &';debatabase' website is extremely useful for students to pick a topic to explore and it gives both the argument and the counter-argument to really push the G&T students.
Unable to share the power point which goes with this lesson as found on the internet, however, the lessons are based on 'Presents from my Aunts in Pakistan' by Moniza Alvi and many power points and clips can be found easily. This encourages students to create a visual artistic representation of a section of the poem. Works really well with challenging students.
Lessons based on Imtiaz Dharker's poem 'Blessings'. Can easily be differentiated. Works well with middle to lower sets and builds on empathy and creative writing skills as well as poetry analysis.
A variety of powerpoint lessons to review, revise and develop understanding of basic grammar, spelling and punctuation. Includes whole powerpoint lessons on parts of speech, different types of punctuation such as the apostrophe, suffixes, prefixes, homophones, antonyms and synonyms as well as literary devices such as the use of metaphor. Great as fill-in lessons or just lock down revision.
Lessons on 'The Man He Killed' by Thomas Hardy (following previous William Butler Yeats lessons). Students should be able to apply a simple frame of analysis.
Revision sheets to use towards a revision booklet for the AQA exam , or just to get ideas about the poems.
An introductory lesson to the course - can be altered to suit other texts.
A revision lesson aimed to help students to improve their own ELLA 3 section A comparative essays. Can be adapted to suit any previous exam papers. Encourages independent learning, self reflection and peer assessment. The double lesson follows on, allowing higher achievers to use coaching skills to help their peers improve.
Series of lessons designed to link in with PSHE body image whilst also a) helping students with independent learning and research techniques, b) guiding them through the basics of information writing and c) making them aware of the problems of using the internet for research, so links in well to ICT across the curriculum.
