A Midsummer Night's Dream: Act 3 Scene 2

(0)
A PowerPoint taking students through this important scene. It includes a number of activities including drama tasks, language analysis tasks, creative writing, a chat show and a storyboarding activity. Should keep them busy for a while! I use this with mixed ability year 8 classes, but it might work for lower ability ks4 ( though you might miss some of the tasks out/adapt them).

Four rounds, each including 10 questions on Macbeth. Assumes knowledge of the play. Rounds include: Plot Who said that line?

Writing a Book Review

(0)
PowerPoint format to save on photocopying, this presentation takes your class through writing a review in stages, with opportunities for discussion and for class interaction. Probably a 30-45minute task, depending on the enthusiasm of your class. A handy first lesson after the holidays lesson for key stage 2/3.

The Color Purple: Novel vs Film

(0)
A worksheet including information about the making of the film and the reception to it, as well as questions to prompt consideration of the audience and context of both the novel and the film. Designed with A Level English Literature in mind, there is a question comparing the film with 'A Streetcar Named Desire', but this could be taken out and replaced with your own comparison text, or omitted altogether. I'll be setting as a homework to read and complete and then using the questions and answers as a discussion base for the following lesson, but could equally be used in class.

AQA Drama and Prose Contextual Linking Question

AQA Drama and Prose Contextual Linking Question

(0)
Created for A-level ENGLISH LITERATURE A (7712/2B) Paper 2B: Texts in Shared Contexts: Modern Times: Literature from 1945 to the Present Day , Option 1, this is an example modern unseen extract taken from Carter's 'The Magic Toyshop' and includes a question on the extract itself, and the follow up question where students need to compare prose and drama. Could be tweaked for the other options on the paper. The extract is a little longer than students would be given in an exam, but I will be using it as a tool to teach Magic Realism in the modern novel. You may also like my resource 'Male Dominance in A Streetcar Named Desire and The Color Purple', which takes students through the approach to the second question on this paper.

Macbeth: Act 3 Scene 2

Of Mice And Men - George's Trial

(0)
This is a rework of another resource (can't remember where it's from but am sharing for free). It has a greater focus on British Values, democracy etc, which might tick some boxes for observations/inspections! The resources could form part of a longer activity, where students prepare their evidence when putting George on trial for the murder of Lennie. There are stimulus materials for for the Defense team and the Prosecution.
