KS3: Conflict and Culture Poetry - a stimulus for Creative Writing

KS3: Conflict and Culture Poetry - a stimulus for Creative Writing

I've had a lot of fun teaching these lessons. Essentially, the idea is you spend a lesson exploring a poem and then a creative angle has been drawn from the text to inform the creative writing lesson that follows. Each of the creative writing lessons assumes a two hour window. A simple scheme, but I've found it to be rather effective.

AQA GCSE English Literature Jekyll & Hyde: Chapter exploration and Extract Analysis

AQA GCSE English Literature Jekyll & Hyde: Chapter exploration and Extract Analysis

A scheme of work I am adding to that will (eventually) cover each chapter and the associated themes surrounding the text, climaxing in an assessment. Each of the chapter lessons identifies SOME of the archaic vocabulary and provides the definitions. Contextual allusions and Thematic Devices are identified too. There are comprehension questions for each of the chapters and some developmental tasks that cover language and structure. In addition to this, I've started to include English Language style questions (I intend to teach Paper 1 the other side of this unit). I've included the worksheets as part of the pack. Each of the chapter specific power points takes about two hours to work through so there is scope for a lot more, but it depends on how quickly you read through the text. Lastly, I include some WORDLES which I use as starting points and are interesting little differentiation tools - one for each chapter covered (except chapter 10 for some reason - it's buried on a hard drive somewhere). I will add to this as I complete each batch of lessons.

Three complete units of work that go through the teaching of An Inspector Calls, all 15 of the Conflict and Power poems AND a selection of Unseen Poems. I've included a version of the poetry anthology I've created that lends itself to annotating and revising better than the AQA version too - bit of a beast that. Also, you will find attached a spreadsheet that allows you to track the scores for all of these components.

AQA English Language Paper 1 Section A Mock Exam - The Darkness Out There

AQA English Language Paper 1 Section A Mock Exam - The Darkness Out There

I've found another use for all that knowledge we have about the old AQA English Lit anthology (The Sunlight on The Grass anthology). I have started to turn them into English Language Paper 1 Section A Mock Exams! This is one of them. There is no mark scheme, but if you use the Paper 1 mark scheme from the AQA website you should be fine. This one uses the start of The Darkness Out There. The focus here is very much on the use of setting.

I've taken one paragraph out but don't worry, it doesn't take away from the creepiness of the narrative voice.

There is no mark scheme, but if you use the Paper 1 mark scheme from the AQA website you should be fine. This one uses sections from Compass and Torch - I've stitched together two sections and omitted the bit about the horses (for those who remember) so that the extract focuses only on the relationship between the boy and the man.

KS3: Introduction to KS3 Reading skills - Harry Potter focused

KS3: Introduction to KS3 Reading skills - Harry Potter focused

An introductory unit suitable for Year 7 students - I taught it to top and bottom set (with differentiation) classes. It is designed to get kids using the basic PEE style structure to create a reading assessment-worthy response. I don't include all of the extracts I used - I photocopied straight from the texts in all honesty - but this is more than enough to get going. Hope you find this useful.

A Level English Language and Literature: Paris Anthology

A Level English Language and Literature: Paris Anthology

These resources assume prior knowledge on the part of the students - they will have covered the greater majority of the texts before hand. The lessons go back and fill in the gaps. I try a few different things here in terms of approach. The "Mike and Sophia" extract guide is a guided annotation lesson; I'd be interested to see how classes respond to this.

AQA Conflict and Power Poetry Scheme of Work

AQA Conflict and Power Poetry Scheme of Work

One power point per poem and some associated skills. I teach the poems in the order in which they appear in the anthology (except Tissue; I put that one at the end). 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.
