Spirited Away - Studio Ghibli - Film & Media Unit Workbook

(0)
Workbook: 26 pages - over 13 lessons-worth of material. Ready to go. Presentation: A Brief Introduction to Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli to get things started. This is a media unit, aimed at late primary, middle school, or early high school. It covers the entire film, and is designed to be used while watching the film to take notes, develop understanding, and gain insight into themes and symbols. The last page is an essay plan. Print and use straight away, or print pages individually. “…an enchanted and enchanting feature from the Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki which left me feeling lighter than air. It is a beautifully drawn and wonderfully composed work of art - really, no other description will do - which takes us on a rocket-fuelled flight of fancy, with tenderly and shrewdly conceived characters on board.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Norman MacCaig Poetry Assessments - Scottish Text - National 5 & Higher

(0)
An assessment for each of the MacCaig poems in the Paper 2 - Critical Reading - Scottish Text. Suitable for National 5 and Higher. Each of these assessments is stand-alone. They do not include 8 mark questions. I have used these after we have studied each of the 6 poems in order to test understanding, and develop analysis skills. Excellent to show progression and keep a focus, especially for those students that need regular feedback to keep motivated!
