Copy of 'The Manhunt' plus detailed questions exploring each stanza. Could be a good introduction/revision resource to Unseen Poetry for GCSE English Literature. Edited footage from the documentary that inspired this footage freely available from this short Youtube clip:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGX4vwXvek4 to aid understanding of context if required.

Writing about Language using the PEEZE structure (using OMAM as an example text)

(0)
An explanation sheet of what is expected in each part of a PEEZE paragraph and gives students a chance to look at model PEEZE paragraphs before attempting their own. Resource based on 'Of Mice and Men' but can easily be adapted to other literature texts as appropriate. Used with top set Year 9 group as a whole class activity, possibly could be adapted as a H/W task for GCSE students.

Ultimate Survival Story

Extended extract from Aron Ralston’s account of getting trapped by a boulder in Utah and being forced to amputate his own arm with a multitool. On last page have included some tasks. Probably best for Year 9, 10 and 11. Effective for exploring how tension and suspense is created through language.

A straightforward lesson analysing some of Lady Macbeth’s language in this scene (when she reads Macbeth’s letter) - offering sentence starters for a PEEZ activity as well as an interesting creative writing task. Could be useful as a cover lesson or even for H/W. Used with a mixed ability Year 9 group. If you want to watch the scene on link provided, you’ll find it at 20 minutes and 30 seconds.

Includes an extract from Act 3, Scene One of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, an exam style question and lots of support that could be easily tweaked for different abilities. Worked a treat with my weaker year nines,and comes with specific conflict related quotations that can be memorised to help prepare for GCSE Literature exam. All in a Word document.

Embedding quotations support sheet

(1)
Used as a H/W task with my second set Year Ten class after discovering that a majority of them had developed the bad habit of 'quotation bombing.' The model examples and practice points and quotations can be easily adapted to suit any text; I have used the AQA 'Women in Prison' source materials from a specimen Paper Two.

Partially complete Canterbury Tales SoW resources (Smartboard Notebook slides, NOT POWERPOINT)

(0)
Smartboard slides (so won't work unless you have the necessary SMART notebook software) that were originally created by me for a now redundant Year Seven SoW. Could be adapted for any Key Stage Three class looking at the history of the English Language or Chaucer. If you have SMART notebook software, you can access the other files that accompany the scheme (copies of extracts/worksheets etc.) through the paperclip icon either to the left or right of the smartboard slides.
