AQA GCSE English Language Paper 2 Q5 - Revise planning

AQA GCSE English Language Paper 2 Q5 - Revise planning

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!

Othello - Introduction and Act 1 scene 1 - William Shakespeare

Othello - Introduction and Act 1 scene 1 - William Shakespeare

Used with a mid-ability year 8 group, these 3 lessons are used to introduce Othello and the opening scene. In the first lesson, pupils need to complete a Carousel of key characters around the room - because of copyright I cannot put the pictures on but you will need pictures of: Othello Iago Desdemona Cassio Emilia Key themes An image of Othello seeing Cassio and Desdemona together (all found on google). Lesson 2 is all about Iago's opening rant and what this rant reveals about Iago and his feelings towards the unfairness he feels that he is going through. Lesson 3 completes the first scene, analysing the racial undertones towards Othello and what this language, used by other characters, reveals about these characters as a first impression on the audience. All resources are attached (apart from Lesson 1 pictures as mentioned above) Lesson 2/3 are on the same powerpoint. Many thanks for looking, I love teaching Othello and these lessons were really fun!!
