Posters that can be displayed in your classroom to help with the understanding of key linguistic devices. Can be printed in any size from the pdf. Harry Potter themed but not obviously not associated with the books/ films.
Examples of evidence I have used in my evidence folder for the past two years.
I struggled with finding specific examples of what people had used previously so I have included what I used in my own folder as well as some more general suggestions.
Hope you find this useful!
Lesson slides and resources for 24 lessons on ‘Tuck Everlasting’ by Natalie Babbit.
No explicit SOW attached but slides are self-explanatory.
We used an online version of the full text to teach this:
This is a quick and easy way to allow students to further understand the feedback you give them and use it to help themselves progress in English.
Mark a piece of work in books by sticking in the strip and ticking areas for improvement.
Students can act on the feedback by
a) Scanning the QR code at the bottom of the strip and finding the lesson.
b) Scanning the QR code on the main display that will take them straight to their given feedback lesson.
Students complete a mini lesson on the feedback website (either as a DIRT task or homework activity). This is then handed in to you as proof of their responding to feedback.
Lessons currently available on the following:
PETER paragraphs, ART WARS for poetry, how to avoid storytelling, context, capital letters, subject terminology, apostrophes, colons, semi-colons, brackets, speech, commas, spelling errors, they’re/their/there, you’re/your, lost focus on the question, embedding quotes and sentence types.
Lessons include comprehension tasks, videos, blog posts, worksheets etc.
(There is a form to submit completed tasks at the end of each but this will send work to me so please ask for it to be submitted in class!)
** In addition to the feedback lessons, the website provides access to: **
-Walking talking mock videos
-A podcast based on the AQA Power and Conflict poems and more…
This resource includes:
Access to a feedback website with 20 mini lessons to be completed on key areas of development in secondary English.
20 posters with the areas of development (QR codes on the posters will take students directly to the specified lesson on the website I have created).
Two posters to display in classrooms which explain how to use the QR code system and also offer alternate suggestions for students without data/ phones/ internet.
‘Help Yourselves’ title font and images for the display.
Marking tick-slips that fit into the margin of books and correspond to the online lessons.
This is based on the UK but content is mostly universal. Pages such as the context page may not be as useful for those not studying with AQA as it will focus on Macebth, A Christmas Carol and An Inspector Calls (will be updated with context for Jekyll and Hyde shortly.)
