Reflection Revision Planner

Instead of a revision timetable, I have created a Reflection Revision Planner. Students: Unlike a timetable, it requires you to reflect on yourself and your studies regularly in order to make sense of what you are studying and why. I hope it will keep you motivated, as you can shape and adapt your revision and have more meaningful study sessions that make a difference. Teachers: Download now for your students!
Persuasive Writing: Syrian Refugee Crisis

Persuasive Writing: Syrian Refugee Crisis

(10)
Persuasive writing lesson using the topic of the Syrian Refugee crisis. I hope the lesson will teach students how to write persuasively and help them gain an understanding of the current issues going on in Syria. Students will act as 'Save the Children' and research into the current issues affecting the lives of those in Syria due to the war (research pack provided). They will then write a persuasive speech to the Foreign Secretary using the research that they have learnt. This can be taught over a series of lessons. Activities led to really interesting and insightful discussions, and students developed a more insightful understanding of the issues that affect their world :o) Nice idea to extend learning outside the classroom: - letters could be sent to the MP -speaking and listening activities -assembly presentations Please leave a review. I would love to know how the lesson went :o).
