This is quite a large unit - each lesson lasts at least an hour - some lessons last more. There are at least 7 lessons here - but when I taught it, it stretched out longer than that. You are paying for 33 resources in total.
The lessons focus on the point of pilgrimage and towards the end, there is some discussion about whether all pilgrimage is religious. It focuses on a mix of world religions deliberately because I wanted to include small parts of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism that I felt were lacking in my Year 7 curriculum. However, Christianity, Judaism and Islam also feature quite heavily.
I used this with Year 7 but it could work with Year 8 as an introduction task - or even as a “nurture” class project and would also be perfect for anyone who home educates.
There is a mix of tasks including group work, extended pieces of writing, research tasks, assessment questions and peer/self assessments - as well as a final assessment. My students really enjoyed it. There is also a differentiation booklet of resources for the less able which can be broken down if you would rather. There are also tasks for “fast finishers” and everything is supported with sentence starters and word frames, as well as measurable success criteria for most of the bigger tasks. The unit looks at Lourdes, Mecca, 3 sites in India, Jerusalem and a non religious pilgrimage study of the film “Africa United”. There is homework included in the form of a differentiation “takeaway” homework project. You might have to buy that DVD - it cost me less that £2 on Amazon. There is also a baseline test and hyper links to relevant clips.
You could literally download this and be ready to teach in minutes. Enjoy. :)
I made these back in 2006 and they were on an old page of mine but I have finally brought them across here to my proper shop.
On my old page, they were downloaded 23534 times.
Had a review score of 4.5 stars.
They had 186 reviews.
They are colourful, fun and useful for introducing a topic, reviewing information and a paired task. They also make a funky wall display.
Join Brazilian President Michel Temar on an exciting project to locate a hotel in the Amazon! Your students must take into account where to place their hotel, what type of hotel to build, how to protect it from flooding and also what months the climate would be the best for tourists to visit.
Will you listen to the different government advisers to create a harmonious hotel OR aim to make cash quick without considering the consequences?
My year 7 LOVED it.
Includes a beautiful worksheet with everything they will need to complete this lesson.
Could be done in groups, or alone! :)
I used it as revision SO - my students already had knowledge of eco tourism, the climate of Brazil AND flood management strategies.
New resource - lesson two from the new Themes unit - Religion and Life. Pick up and teach. Exam Practice embedded throughout my work. Will be a bundle and homework coming as well. Check out my other stuff. :)
**BRAND NEW FOR SEPTEMBER 2017**
This is a 6 lesson unit suitable for students starting KS3 Religious Education.
It includes a scheme of work, a fully differentiated task booklet for EAL/sen students which can be used as a discreet booklet or simply printed off when needed as one off differentiation, an assessment and five beautifully created "WOW" factor lessons which come completely resourced with materials - other than the differentiation booklet.
There are hyperlinks to relevant video clips throughout, which are embedded into the PowerPoints making them effortless to use. I am an RE specialist with experience teaching KS3 English, Humanities and PSHE so there is a wealth of cross curricular options running throughout.
There is also a "Take Away" menu piece of homework which features 3 pieces of homework for every student (inc. SEN/EAL/G&T etc).
The scheme of work is extremely detailed and features a full lesson by lesson plan and links to relevant AT1 and AT2 attainment. It also links to the new AQA spec to show how I am planning ahead with my work. There is 12 mark exam practice running throughout and the assessment is a piece of creative work which is suitable for all abilities.
There are also chances to peer assess and self assess as well as a teacher feedback pro-forma which makes mid way marking a breeze. There is an ICT research task and opportunities for group work, as well as detailed individual pieces for extended writing.
I have chosen to feature a case study on Manchester but it would be suitable as a generic case study for the UK.
All scaffolds, word frames, lesson outcomes, objectives etc are included. You could download this and be ready to teach within minutes.
Please check out my other items as I am passionate about the work I do. Thanks.
This entire 11 lesson unit would work well on its own, or as a supplementary lessons to an existing unit. I've used it with Year 7 and Year 8. The feedback from them was that they really enjoyed it and it also contains a lesson which I received an "Outstanding" observation for.
The PowerPoint contains 59 slides. This is every lesson condensed and split lesson by lesson. This also includes speaking and listening tasks, a large written task, learning objectives, peer and self assessment opportunities, resources, group work, homework tasks and a final structured assessment based around the concept of Room 101.
Topics include: persuasive devices, analysing speeches of famous people, persuasive advertising and introductory lessons which would be a great way to get to know a class. The famous people I focus on are Emma Watson, Charlie Chaplin, Winston Churchill and Mel Gibson's speech from "Braveheart" (amongst othetrs). The advertising campaign features an Apprentice style lesson where groups have to put together a pitch on a product, including persuasive devices.
I have also attached some resources which are seperate to the PowerPoint to make life easier.

Students have to plan a journey around Europe using the atlas, filling in information as they go about human and physical geogaphy. They then have to plan a presentation on it at the end. Good introductory unit suitable for KS3 Year 7 or Year 8. There is option for differentiation by the groupings. Resources include: a detailed scheme of work, teacher overview, student overview, presentation brief, peer assessment sheets and an accompanying powerpoint.
Introductory unit to "Of Mice and Men". I used this with KS3, Year 8. I have attached a 44 slide PowerPoint comprised of 12 lessons.
This includes some background and historical context to the book, a focus on the descriptions of George and Lennie, a study of Curley's wife, set design of the Bunk House and analysis of the "Dream Farm".
It also includes self assessment, peer assessment, an assessment on Curley's wife, scaffolding, detailed homework projects, group work and ICT research opportunities.
I removed a lot of my learning objectives as they were very specific and for that reason, I have slashed the price to £7.99.

10 hour long lessons at least- maybe more - contained in one PowerPoint. This PowerPoint is 45 slides in length. Quality homework is also included. I also used a differentiated booklet that runs alongside the unit which I printed off for weaker students. I have also put in 2 other resources I used BUT you will need copies of Oliver Twist. This unit could easily be stretched out if you added class reading of quiet reading of the text.
Includes background on Dickens' life and influences, the context he was writing within, creative writing around what London was like at the time, an example of the non fiction work of Dickens with a comprehension task, a speaking and listening task built around reforming schools and focus on the portrayal of the characters of Jack Dawkins and Bill Sykes. There is also an assessment opportunity built around Dickens' portrayal of Sykes, complete with a levelled itinary. The unit finishes with a fun subject appropriate task.
There are multiple opportunities for self or peer assessment.
The unit also links into persuasive writing, imperatives and correct use speech marks.
*I removed the learning objectives because the ones I used were really specific to a challenging group. As a result of this, I have put the price down to £7.99.
