"The Tiredness of Rosabel" - 2017 Language exam - support Powerpoint - READING SKILLS SECTION

Many of you will be doing the 2017 Summer Exam as a mock this DEC/JAN and this Powerpoint is designed to support that process. It is based on "The Tiredness of Rosabel" AQA GCSE Language paper and deals with Section A the reading section. I have included all the obvious things in one place - mark schemes, summary of examiners report comments etc, but I've also added tips on how to improve on each question, analysis etc. I've tried to summarise examiner comments into student friendly language. Ideally the presentation should be used as you give the work back to the students and you can enhance it, obviously, with specific comments related to your own students.

Teaching A Level AQA Tragedy - The WHOLE Course in 13 weeks

Teaching A Level AQA Tragedy - The WHOLE Course in 13 weeks

Teaching AQA Tragedy over 13 Weeks This resource attempts to give you the key information that you need to introduce, teach, assess and revise AQA Tragedy over 13 weeks – ie the long term before Xmas, perhaps. It includes 87 separate resources, many of them detailed and handmade. There are enough resources here to support 13 weeks’ worth of teaching, allowing also for some activities which you devise to suit your classes and test their knowledge. It is based upon the teaching of “The Great Gatsby”, “Richard II” and “Othello” for the AQA Tragedy specification. It also provides detailed introductions to the genre of Tragedy itself. It provides questions and model answers to assess after each text is taught (3 in total) and then suggests the Summer 2017 paper for an end of unit assessment, which it also fully supports. It offers specific extracts from Othello for detailed focus upon. The resources could be put onto the school network for students to use to support their examinations. NB: We teach Tragedy in Year 13 in long term before Xmas and Crime in Year 12 I assume 10 lessons a fortnight of 60 mins duration 13 weeks equal 65 lessons in total on Tragedy If classes are taught by 2 teachers you will need to divide responsibilities It’s a big advantage if your students are able to read Gatsby at end of Year 12 or during summer holidays Overall, this resource offers a wealth of material to prepare students for this exam. Full details are on the Course overview spreadsheet.

Even More! A Level Unseen Crime Extracts (Part 3)

Even More! A Level Unseen Crime Extracts (Part 3)

AQA A Level Crime - Unseen Extracts - 26 documents in total ! Even More Unseen Crime Extracts to Analyse! This is the third in my series of Unseen Crime extracts, to support the Crime paper on the AQA A Level English Literature examination. They follow a similar format to the previous two. There are 10 extracts, covering a range of Crime sub genres: Golden Age/Hard Boiled/Psychological thriller/Historical Crime/Courtroom crime drama etc. Each extract is in word individually for students to work on, plus they are gathered together into a 22 page scanned student booklet. All ten extracts (with teacher notes for each one) are also individually available in Word and are also annotated and collected into a scanned 32 page teacher booklet, which also has a page of teacher notes at the back of each extract to help teach each one and to prompt discussion. I have also added some extra Unseen resources to enhance the package: Ways into Unseen Analysis Posters, a very detailed PowerPoint lesson looking at the Susan Hill Unseen example paper, a presentation on TYPES of Crime fiction, and a PowerPoint with ideas on how to approach the Unseen element. This package should provide some last minute practice before the exams.

RICHARD II: "EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH RICHARD II FOR AQA A LEVEL"

RICHARD II: "EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH RICHARD II FOR AQA A LEVEL"

Stop Press ! Key Moments in Richard II added 17/03/18 ! EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH “Richard II” FOR A LEVEL in one place –50 PLUS RESOURCES (SEE ALSO SEPARATE FREE RII RESOURCE WHICH HAS TASTER RESOURCES FOR THIS RESOURCE AND A DETAILED CONTENTS PAGE) These resources are part of a package of resources that have one philosophy: to give you all you need to teach a text or a topic IN ONE PLACE. These resources include extensive presentation PowerPoints, lots of model answers, annotated answers, mock questions, extensive background research PowerPoints, and A3 help sheets (Brainstorms, Model Answers, Key Quotes summary posters, Key Acts Summary Posters, Key Themes posters etc). They also ensure that Assessment Objectives and Mark Schemes are addressed. The idea behind these resources is to offer detailed work that has been tested in the classroom and proven to be successful. The resources try to offer value for money, and always offer a free taster resource with a detailed contents page, outlining exactly what is on offer, and some free taster resources. This resource bundle offers approximately 50 detailed resources to support the teaching of Richard 11 and Tragedy in general at A Level. The focus is on looking at critical views, analysing extracts in detail, tracing character development, themes, language and lots more. Key quotes and key scenes and acts are analysed in detail. There are lots of annotated help sheets, model answers, and exam revision materials. In fact there is everything you need here to teach this play in detail. There is also a contents page which suggests how the play could be taught over 8 OR 9 weeks. A lot of the resources are completely original and created by me in the classroom, and they have been “road tested” for 3 years – SOME of the PowerPoints make use of existing resources like Wikipedia, but at least it saves YOU having to spend 3 or 4 hours trawling through these resources and assessing them and summarising them ! With 50 detailed resources on this text for a fiver I still think it offers good value for money and it will save you a lot of time! Other similar resources are in my Big Cat Bundles in my shop!
