A compilation of worksheets (some of which are taken from various sources on the internet, fellow TES users, workbooks etc.) and a guided PowerPoint with clear learning intentions. Two options for assessment at the end. I use this for middle/low ability Y9 classes

KS3 Reading to access media texts

(0)
This is a compilation of a few KS3 resources I have made to help students tackle the presentational aspect of media texts. It has been made with a view to preparing KS3 students for the new CCEA GCSE: Reading to access media texts. It focuses on Camera Angles, Shot Types and Camera Movements. It could be used for a Media class, reading film, Film Studies or indeed for the GCSE CCEA spec. Hopefully you find this useful! :)
Dialect matching exercise

Dialect matching exercise

(0)
Useful for Study of Spoken Language when introducing students to the concept of dialect. The worksheet requires students to look at 'dialect phrases' from predominantly Scottish, American, Australian and Northern Irish cultures and match them with the correct definition. Students should then attempt to identify the correct origin/where the dialect comes from.
Self Assessment of Written Work

Self Assessment of Written Work

(0)
This a self-assessment form for students to fill in, based on The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. However, it can easily be adapted to suit other written tasks. It is for KS3 students and the aim is that they read the feedback comments / annotation on their work and tick accordingly. They then review how many Yes/No ticks they have and set themselves a target based on what they have identified as their weaknesses.

1// A fake past paper question and student response for the new GCSE English Literature paper from CCEA. Hopefully this is of use to you! I do a lot of ‘be the examiner’ exercises where the students have to decide which mark they would give it and why. 2// Response to The Red Room by H G Wells - extract found in the fabulous free pack by Shimna Integrated.
