A bunch of scaffolded quotes I have used with my bottom set to help them revise quotes. We revisit each set of quotes each week, as they improve I will be moving on to the more difficult sets of quotes (more blanked out) Great as a retrieval task at the start of each lesson. Easy - one word blanked out Tricky - two words blanked out Hard - several words blanked out Very hard - all words blanked out but correct spaces (to help students see how many words it should be) Full retrieval - just one line, students to use characters and previous retrieval to remember.
A blank Literature and Language QLA. Language QLA is broken down to individual questions to see which questions your class is either exeeding in or falling behind in. Literature QLA has broken down the invidiual Assessment Objectives. AO1, AO2 & AO3 are all broken down out of 30 marks. We mark the individual AOs to see students strengths and weaknesses. We do use an A-E system (Advanced, Secure, Developing & Emerging), but these can be changed.
16 lessons on Hamlet for KS3 or for low ability KS4 maybe. We have 3 lessons a week on scheme and then 1 literacy lesson a week, so around 6 weeks worth of lessons as some lessons take longer.
17 lessons on based on Roald Dahl’s ‘Boy’. I find it takes longer than 17 lessons as the reading tends to take longer, so probably more like 20-25 lessons worth. We use this as our introductory SOW for year 7 so fit for mixed ability groups.
