Time savers for English teachers

Experienced English teacher currently working at a 6th form college. My most popular resources provide enough lessons for 1/2 a term or more, in the form of a long PPT divided into lessons/several lesson numbered PPTs, with accompanying worksheets/displays/homeworks. I am currently working on a new series of resources - a text in 25 quotations. These involve close literary and linguistic analysis of key quotations that address all of the themes, motifs and characters in the text.

Handmaid's Tale revision activity- ring of fire game

(0)
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.

This reading log ensures that students are thinking analytically and contemplating character/themes as they read the novel independently. It is divided into chronologically sections based on chapters (e.g. the first page covers chapter 1-5 when Harker is in Transylvania) with thinking questions for students to respond to as they read. The final page also includes some key themes, asking students to note down quotations linked to the themes as they progress through the novel.
