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.
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)
