Survival stories- non-fiction

(0)
12 lessons based on real-life survival stories. Pupils will read a range of news stories - there are more options than are mentioned allowing teachers to use different stories/differentiate according to the article. I am moving away from death by powerpoint so there are no ppt needed for these lessons.
The Tulip Touch SoL

The Tulip Touch SoL

(0)
A detailed SoL covering 30 lessons. The focus is massively on analysing language in detail with a lot of peer and self-assessment of this skill and of basic literacy. This is completely ppt free and requires minimum resources. There are suggestions for differentiation should teachers want ideas but the actual differentiation would be personal to your class. There are only 2 or 3 times when page numbers are referenced and these are based on the Pearson/Longman version with the two girls on the front.

I created this for cie coursework but may suit a number of units. There is a full so with suggested homework activities for 6 weeks. PPP/worksheets accompany most lessons. A couple of lessons that I’ve mentioned are available elsewhere on TES e.g. silent debate and rumble paragraphs and are excellent resources.
