MISSING PERSONS DRAMA SCHEME OF WORK FOR KS3.

(1)
A full scheme of work, including resources, to cover the sensitive topic of a school girl who goes missing from her family home. I use The Beatles' 'She's Leaving Home' within the scheme but do not have it available to offer as part of the scheme. I am sure it could easily be found online. There are eight lessons in total. The first, for eg, involves bringing in a bag of items that could belong to the missing girl and students working out what kind of girl the missing girl is, from these items. This is followed by a village meeting, where her disappearance is announced. Y7 & 8 particularly enjoy this scheme.

THE GORGON'S HEAD GREEK MYTHS KS3 MEDUSA PERSEUS & KS4 ENGLISH LANGUAGE PAPER 1 SKILLS

(0)
Using Anthony Horowitz's retelling of this myth, there are several activities looking at the different sections of this myth. This is the tale of Perseus and how he slays Medusa. Please see my 'shop' for further resources. As an optional starter task, you could create a 'Pandora's Box' of objects related to the Gorgon's Head myth, for students to use to predict what will happen. I have used toy snakes, pebbles, Halloween eyeballs etc. Students then use inference skills to create an impression of King Polydectes, draw the gorgons using the given extract, list four things they have learned about them (in the style of Language Paper 1 Q1) with answers supplied for easy self assessment. After this, students can research Athena on computers or phones. Students then analyse the writer's use of language to describe Medusa's cave using an evidence table which supplies suggested answers for easy assessment. Finally, draw Athena's shield to include Medusa's head and play the interactive whiteboard game 'Gorgon's Head' to sum up learning.
