Stretch and challenge activities marked with a golden star on PPTS. UPDATES - an A3 revision wallchart (for all of AS level langlit) to guide students through revision tasks + a very comprehensive (5+ pages) list of challenging terminology divided by language level to use to make revision flashcards etc.

It is divided into sections based on chapters with thinking questions for students to respond to as they read.

Handmaid's Tale revision activity- ring of fire game

Handmaid's Tale revision activity- ring of fire game

This activity will take 20 minutes or so to play with your class. Each student is given one of the slips of paper with both an answer and a question written on it. Distribute them at random in the class. The first person will read out the first question and then the student who thinks they have the correct answer to that question will read it aloud, they will then read their question and so on. There is one answer card which is the final card in the sequence. The aim is to ‘close the circle’ by all students correctly answering their cards.
