This resource is an entire lesson which simply requires you to tell the students every 6 minutes (I teach 50 minute lessons but I have included additional tasks if teaching an hour or wishing to create homework). The multiple tasks require students to work hard and fast if they are to complete the activities. I have used this with my classes and it has been superb. The resource includes the following topics (each their own lessons): Macbeth, An Inspector Calls, A Christmas Carol and the Power and Conflict section of the AQA anthology.
