Macbeth Scheme of work - GCSE English Literature

A scheme of work consisting of 72 files including 35 powerpoints and differentiated resources. The only one missing is a resource for lesson 24 as it is corrupted but only consisted on 3 speech bubbles! The assessment objectives are written towards Edexcel, 9-1 GCSE, but can be easily amended to any exam board. I really enjoyed making these as I enjoy teaching Shakespeare! Many, many thanks for looking,

AQA GCSE English Language Paper 2 Q5 - Revise planning

AQA GCSE English Language Paper 2 Q5 - Revise planning

(0)
One of my all-time favourite lessons to teach! This hour long lesson can be used with any GCSE group as it all about them, they pretty much create this revision lesson! This is used at the end of a unit on question 5 for paper 2 (19th/20th-21st century non fiction) and tests pupils on their knowledge of question 5. It requires pupils to create and devise their own question, in the style of question 5. This tests pupils knowledge of how the structure is constructed (tone, form, audience). Following them creating their own question they then take part in a carousel activity of speed planning, rather than speed dating! They are given a set amount of time (that is up to you as the teacher) and need to recognise the PAF of the question (created by a pupil in the group) and create device examples they can use in their answer and a structural plan - when their time is us then they swap/move on to the next question. This is about how pupils need to revise planning at speed, as they will in their exam, for a variety of different forms, audiences, and tones. Pupils really enjoyed and was a useful revision tool once they had used in lesson! Thanks for looking!

Designed for year 10 for hour long lessons. Opening lesson studies the key themes of Macbeth as a general introduction - also set the standard for the rules in the classroom as the first lesson of a new scheme.

Designed for the Edexcel 9-1 GCSE specification; therefore lessons will cover skills that are pretty much covered in every specification but AO's might be different - check your specification to make sure. N.B. The PowerPoints change to blue backgrounds to ensure Dyslexia friendly; you can obviously change this if you wish!

This lesson was created for a mid set year 8 group but can be used universally. It was a one off lesson for fright week (halloween week). But is a good, quick introduction to the techniques of gothic literature if you just wanted a nice, easy start to your new topic, or as a one off lesson!
