Pride and Prejudice Revision materials

Pride and Prejudice Revision materials

I have used these resources to help my students understand and learn enough quotations to get them through the AQA GCSE Literature paper 1. The plot timeline we completed alongside our first reading of the text. The aim was to enable students to independently find appropriate references from across the whole text, depending on what character, theme or relationship they were asked to write on. The ppt is short, but was the beginnings of in-depth text analysis, looking specifically AO2 analysis, but also the context (AO3) of the quotation.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

This is a full ppt unit of work that should take a half term to complete in full, alongside reading the text/ key extracts. There are some interactive creative writing starters at the beginning that we used to help students produce more creative pieces in response to the text. This is a fun and interactive resource that could be used for years 7 and 8.

AQA GCSE Poetry Anthology 'Power and Conflict'

AQA GCSE Poetry Anthology 'Power and Conflict'

On the slides I have annotated several of the poems and included the planning sheet that I used to show my students how to successfully compare two poems for question 1 in the exam. I've also included some annotated poems in worksheet format. These can be used in a variety of ways to try and teach unseen poetry skills at the same time.

Year 7 Poetry Scheme based on 'Identity'

Year 7 Poetry Scheme based on 'Identity'

This is a full 6-week scheme for year 7s based on the theme of identity. We used this as a platform to explore different forms of poetry each week and to look at different cultural identities- from Irish, British, Japanese to Indigenous Australian. My students were really engaged with the scheme, particularly because it allowed them to write as well as unpick poems. Ideally, the end assessment is based on a piece of their own writing. The Irish traditional folk tales we used were a little complex for some of our students and I would differentiate these further next time around. This scheme was aiming to develop background knowledge and skills for the AQA GCSE English Lit Paper 2- unseen poetry. Mostly we wanted students to understand AO2- poet's methods and a reader's response based on their own work as well as that of others. The scheme also promotes reading literacy.

Of Mice and Men for Key Stage 3

Of Mice and Men for Key Stage 3

As this has been dropped from the new GCSE syllabus, we were really keen to take our younger students through the text. The resources have been adapted to suit this age group. We used it with Year 8 students in the Summer Term, however it could be used with Year 9. We used this scheme to support reading skills necessary for English Lit Paper 1/2- modern fiction. I ran out of time in the 7-week term, so the last chapter is a little rushed. There isn't an assessment attached to the end of it, however this could easily be added on.

Othello 'Love Through the Ages' AQA Lit A spec

Othello 'Love Through the Ages' AQA Lit A spec

This is a bundle of resources, including ppts and research articles for students to read and supplement their learning of Othello. I have used these over the past two years to teach the new specification for AS and A Level. I'm sure the resources will need tinkering on your behalf, but they should save you a huge amount of time organizing and researching to create resources.

This comic strip took hours of laborious editing/formatting- it is a real time saver for you to teach or revise the plot of the novel. It could also be a great resource to catch up students who have had long-term absence.

GCSE AQA Anthology Poetry revision

GCSE AQA Anthology Poetry revision

This ppt has a series of flashcards students can use as a method to revise the poems. I used this to try and enhance my students' understanding of the second poem they choose from the 'Power and Conflict' anthology to compare with the set poem in question 1. The last couple of slides was set as a challenge for students to complete during lesson time.

This series of ppts, activities, research material and quotation revision has been used as part of the A Level AQA Lit A spec for (Modern Times- Post WW2 fiction) however it could be used to supplement another exam board.

Creative Writing Starters and main task- great intro to school year

We used this resource as a department to get every KS3 student to produce a 'best practice' piece which was placed at the front of every book they have in college to promote and praise their efforts. It also enabled us to see the level of literacy students have when entering your classroom.
