Year 7 Titanic Independent Learning Project for English

(0)
Scheme of work based around the HMS Titanic which sunk in April 1912. The scheme includes reading, writing and speaking and listening activities which will explore the class system on the Titanic and the roller coaster of emotion from the excitement of the ‘unsinkable ship’ through to the mass loss of lives, mainly from the lower classes. NB This scheme does not give detailed lesson plans; the way individual lessons are opened, structured & closed, & the way home learning is integrated, will be determined by the teacher & the needs of the particular class.

All powerpoints are complete with planning within and also without in the Unit of Work document. This SOL will work for one whole term with year 8 focusing on Terror Kid and poems written by various black writers. Both will coincide with each other however, the opening of the SOL will focus on Terror Kid. It develops understanding of nuances of language including narrative techniques; it requires high levels of critical & imaginative response, & building skills of formal analysis required for GCSE. It builds on work with imaginative texts, to look at some subtle ways in which texts can carry political & emotional messages. Aim to read at least three chapters per week. • Develop skills of creative & critical response to a novel • Develop skills of critical/analytical writing, essential for KS3 and 4 • Develop understanding of character • Develop understanding of themes and literary techniques • Develop skills of creative & critical response to a range of types of texts • Develop awareness of the interconnectedness & relationships between different types of texts – literary & non-literary • Develop skills of critical/analytical writing, essential for GCSE Diversity of culture and its representation in literature Zephaniah’s interest in racial and class identity and prejudice Consider themes of Authority, Punishment and Anger and Identity

New GCSE 9-1 Reading grade criteria

(0)
All grades from below Grade 1 up to Grade 9 included. KS2 criteria for reading and writing have influenced the working towards Grade 1 grades. The idea is to tick the boxes complete, circle the target criteria for self extension and then highlight one and set a task in the box below to demonstrate immediate progress. We use these on A5 stickers after an assessment or piece of extended writing to focus interventions and student's learning.
