Powerpoint lessons and resources to go with a short scheme of work based on Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. This unit involves pupils getting to grips with the plot, characters, themes and the text itself. It was an enjoyable unit to teach, so hopefully you will find it fun also. This was taught to a Year 7 set of middle ability but can be adapted for whomever.
Here is a revision mat for the Eduqas English Language Component 2 (19th/21st Century Non Fiction) exam. It covers how to answer all the reading questions A1-6 with helpful, handy tips and tricks! Great for GCSE pupils to have in front of them revising or stuck up somewhere in their house!
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,

This PPT was used with a mid-high set year 10 focusing solely on the answering of question A5 and A6 only (comparison question). Goes through examiner advice, how to achieve the marks through model examples, mark scheme and independent investigation of the comparison between the 'Waste not want not' and 'American Frugal housewife' articles.
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!

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.

N.B. The PowerPoints change to blue backgrounds to ensure Dyslexia friendly; you can obviously change this if you wish!

Here are five lessons to accompany the opening five chapters of Michael Morpurgo's Shadow; A very reflective novel based upon a courageous, yet modern and relevant topic. These lessons feature spelling tests, key literacy skills, comprehensive questions and speaking and listening tasks. My old role at my school was to improve reading and comprehension skills and these simple lessons will hopefully provide an easy and enjoyable start to your classes journey into this new text.
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!
