Full scheme of work, including resources for the novel Holes. A great read for KS3 students. Includes reading and writing assessments and preparation for both lower and higher ability students. 27 lessons in total.
Adaptable for any poems. This grid is blank, so that you can just add your poem titles at the top and off you go!
Focuses students thinking onto the content of the poem, the ideas that the poet is trying to convey, the mood and atmosphere, analysis of language and structure and their own personal responses to the poems, before concluding by identifying similarities and differences.
Brilliant for scaffolding, before an essay.
