I believe in a lot for a little, or give it away. Teachers have to support each other, so most of my stuff is a whole term's work for a fiver or free. Boogie :-)

Basically these are my resources for the last specifications and before, which is why they are cheap. They will get you sailing towards the new specs for sure, helping the kids to get fully familiar with the basics, including language, themes, context and characters.

Rabbit in Your Headlights Screenshots for Creative Writing or Media Study

(0)
This is really useful for a disengaged GCSE class, using banned music videos as a starting point for spoken language or a piece of transactional writing. I’ve suggested some really interesting videos (all on Youtube) but I’m 50 now, and not as down with the kids as I used to be, so you’d probably want to augment the unit with some gangsters shooting each other or scantily clad dancers with gold teeth smoking decidedly dodgy looking Vape machines. Or something.

5 weeks’ worth of lessons to teach this much loved but under represented play - annoys me that Inspector Calls tends to pip it, which is why I’ve included the High Prior Attainment work and RAG most of the lessons. I teach AQA but the specification has changed about a billion times in the last six seconds, so most of the work is as generic as possible; I don’t go for teaching to the exam, I teach the play. It’s what we’re paid for. Passing the exam is the pupils’ job. Enjoy :-)
