AQA Conflict and Power Poetry Scheme of Work (All 15 poems eventually)

AQA Conflict and Power Poetry Scheme of Work (All 15 poems eventually)

This will get bigger as I teach the poems. There will be at least one power point per poem, and I will cover necessary skills as I go. Basically, at the moment I need somewhere to store these and figure I'll leave them where someone else might be able to use them. I follow a pattern with the lessons and source the contextual information from the BBC Bitesize website (and a couple of other places when I get bored of them) - it makes sense as any student that misses out on something can go and find what they need relatively quickly. The material is readily available elsewhere, hence the relatively low price for so many lessons. I teach them in the order in which they appear in the anthology - with the eventual exception of Tissue as I want the poetry skills honed before letting them near that. This is a product that will increase in size quickly...

AQA English Literature: Introduction to Unseen Poetry lessons

AQA English Literature: Introduction to Unseen Poetry lessons

Lessons designed to engage and interest my year 10s as they step into GCSE-land for the first time. They enjoyed the analysis of the song lyrics a lot. I found that my previous classes found it very hard to engage with the poetry element. These lessons (combined with a couple of others that don't belong to me) worked well.

KS3: Escape from Kraznir creative writing pack (my version)

KS3: Escape from Kraznir creative writing pack (my version)

First things first, let me just say that the mid that created the Escape from Kraznir SoW was not mine - wish it was though... You are not buying the SoW (though I do include it as part of the pack so you have a frame of reference), that is available freely elsewhere. What you are buying is the 7 lessons that I created from this SoW and taught to my students. Let me say this - I have never had such a reaction creatively. My gast was well and truly flabbered as to their engagement and the effort they put in. I've created a single power point that contains all of the other lessons too - just for those who like continuity. NOTE: I used some of the sound effects from Warcraft 2, but I couldn't put this up here (Blizzard may have something to say about that). However, you can use your own sound effects and music as and where you see fit (I liked using the Death of Optimus Prime Music from the Transformers Movie (not the Bay versions, the original cartoon version with Unicron) over the top of the farewell aspect in Lesson 2). This is a lot of fun. I promise. Seriously...

AQA A-Level English Language and Literature: Othello - Lesson 1

AQA A-Level English Language and Literature: Othello - Lesson 1

A reintroduction lesson that should be taught with the understanding that the students have read the text beforehand. Designed as an entry point into year 13; ideal for new teachers looking to get the measure of a new class (as in my case). I found this lesson particularly useful when combined with FAR marking the material surrounding the quotations. You should view this as a starting point - future lessons will get much more specific.

AQA A-Level English Language and Literature: Othello - Lesson 2 (Soliloquies)

AQA A-Level English Language and Literature: Othello - Lesson 2 (Soliloquies)

My second lesson. Here, I focus almost entirely on ACT 2 SCENE 1 and Iago's soliloquies therein. The notes element of the power point pulls a lot of thinking together from across a lot of sources - you'll need these notes to flesh out the tasks. I tie it up with an exam style question at the end focusing on what we can infer about attitudes to women. Quite pleased with how this looks and how it goes.

AQA English Language Paper 2 Section A Resource Bundle: The Mary Celeste vs The High Aim 6

AQA English Language Paper 2 Section A Resource Bundle: The Mary Celeste vs The High Aim 6

FOUR lessons that go through each of the AQA English Language Paper 2 Section A questions. Lesson 1 is a 19th century text comprehension lesson, but each lesson after that develops skills surrounding EACH of the question types that come up on the exam. The way I've structured lessons 2 and 3 will allow you to give classes a few cracks at Q2 and Q3. Answers are included (or rather the evidence in the texts that will LEAD to good answers). The source documents are also included, but the pdf version of the 19th century article is a little ropey so here is the link to the actual source: http://www.maryceleste.net/doyle.htm I should also make it clear that I do not work for AQA and have no magical insight - this is just how I am approaching revision for this unit before all hell breaks loose next summer. PS - I found a couple of errors and have since been back to fix them - sorry!

A bank of lessons and extracts that introduce Key Stage 3 to a variety of different 19th Century Literature texts. Designed with a top set year 8 class in mind. Draws heavily from the AQA material - look at this as either a time-saver or a starting point.

Teaching Structure - AQA English Language Paper 1 Q3 focus

Teaching Structure - AQA English Language Paper 1 Q3 focus

Structure is a tricky concept to teach sometimes - it's not as easy to hang your hat on a structural feature in the same way you can with a language feature. My year 9 class struggled with structure, so I built this lesson (well, it's more of a sequence of lessons really). I draw heavily from films and from the sorts of literature that appeal to year 9 students. I photocopied pages from the books I allude to, but I cannot (for copyright reasons) upload these to the site. I can, however, give you page references to go off. Images are often links to youtube videos. They worked when I uploaded them (honest). My lot found this useful. TEXTS USED: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone: Pg 56 (The bit where Harry sees Diagon Alley for the first time) Maze Runner: Pg 120 (The bit where you are waiting for the Griever to turn up for the first time) George's Marvelous Medicine: Pg..oh pants you can't see it! The chapter is called "The Cook-up" and it's the bit where George is making the medicine. Northern Lights: Pg 1 (The bit where Lyra and Pan are sneaking about)
