(0)
This free sample is the first PowerPoint in a complete scheme of work. In this PowerPoint: Lesson 0: A reading task for students to complete independently throughout the term. Lesson 1: Students are introduced to the conventions of the Gothic genre. Students draw parallels between the traditional conventions of Gothic and some interpretations of this in cinema. Information about the FULL scheme of work available at: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gothic-fiction-ks3-complete-scheme-of-work-12229904 This scheme of work is expected to take around a full term to complete if not rushed and contains: Ten skills-based PowerPoints, each expected to take several lessons Worksheets, key texts and other hand-outs to go along with the PowerPoint Five assessments: Two writing, two reading and one speaking Assessment feedback sheets for easy and focused feedback Overview of each PowerPoint including its pertinent AFs and requisite resources Extension ideas if you finish the scheme of work early The scheme of work is centered around the theme of Gothic, with particular focus on the writings of Edgar Allen Poe. The primary emphasis is reading and analytical writing (PEE) and the secondary emphasis is narrative writing for effect. The scheme of work is highly differentiated and thus caters to the spectrum from mid/high ability year 7 to low ability year 9 (Level 3-5+). Each powerpoint begins with outlining the assessment foci (Derived from the National Strategies APP), stratified over a level spectrum (typically between levels 3-5+), which are then distilled down to a simple Key Question which students needs to focus on during the powerpoint. From this, three learning objectives are derived, again based on the APP. From this, there will typically be a short warm-up task, an introduction to the skills and then some free practice with the skills. Each powerpoint ends up with revisiting the Key Question and then a self-assessment anchored in the learning objectives, which allows students to place themselves on the levels spectrum. Throughout the scheme of work, students are required to read a Gothic novel of their choice. The scheme of work concludes with an assessment battery based on this novel.
