Sarah's Differentiated English Shop

English teacher for 3 years. LSA for 2 years before that. Love learning; love teaching. Want to change education for the better and get rid of silly expectations! Believe pupils need to take responsibility for their learning and should be encouraged to take a risk. Never shout; use positive language to reinforce expectations. Try to laugh every day :)

The answer includes: subject terminology, links to context and evidence from the text. Pupils could highlight all three to think about how things link up. Do feel free to edit this to make it a more sophisticated piece for higher-ability, or edit to make it easier for a SEN class who will, ultimately, sit the same exam.

LOTF Conch Model Essay.

(1)
My Year 11 class screamed/cried/complained that there was nothing in chapter 1 of Lord of The Flies about the conch. I have created a model answer using ambitious vocabulary and the PEE format to construct a response about the symbolism of the conch in 'Sound of the Shell'. There are some perceptive points to engage the higher-ability student and these could be used as starter activities to promote debate.

HOT Questions for English

A range of Higher Order Thinking questions that can be used as an extension activity in English. They will need to be cut out and laminated. I store mine in a folder stapled to a wall in a classroom. Children have free choice in the one they choose, but I have sorted mine in lower-middle-higher questions after printing. The desired outcome is to challenge children's curiosity and higher thinking skills. In a mixed ability setting, these are useful for the higher students when they are finished their work.
