Intended to be printed and laminated for a wall display on literary devices. Uses examples from a lot of modern films (lots of Harry Potter!) to make explanations clear and relevant to pupils.
I hope it comes in handy.
Within this unit of work, students will learn how to apply the concepts of computational thinking to a range of different problem solving puzzles. The resource is split into four sections;
1. Computational thinking puzzles - a range of different types of puzzles which encourage students to apply the concepts of computational thinking to solve them. Puzzles include mazes, word ladders and even a game of draughts (or checkers)!
2. Logic Gates - students will need to solve the logic gate puzzles to identify if the output is on (1) or off (0) dependent on the gate sequences. This also helps develop Boolean decision making through the use of AND, OR & NOT gates which produce a TRUE (1) or FALSE (0) output.
3. Flowchart puzzles - students need to work out the correct answers to the questions asked dependent on the input information and the flowchart conditions set. Flowcharts include the use of algebra variables which can help support mathematics students.
4. Pseudo code puzzles - students need to read through the pseudo code algorithms and demonstrate their understanding by answering the questions asked. Pseudo code sequences include the use of algebra variables which can help support mathematics students.
Each puzzle is given a score. Once complete students check their answers and work out their overall scores and place them in the grid provided. They then compare this with the overall levels to find their overall level: Rookie, Pro or Beast! This can then be used within assessment to see if students are performing at, below or above expected levels.
Pack includes a student PowerPoint resource to complete and answers for each puzzle.

A 21 lesson detailed scheme of work on The Handmaid's Tale of 28 separate teaching resources covering the whole novel. This was produced for the new Edexcel AS / A Level English Literature and is the first part of preparing students for the prose exam (will compare with Frankenstein - details uploaded separately). This pack on The Handmaid's Tale includes a comprehensive 8 page scheme of work which links each lesson with relevant assessment objectives and details each lesson activity. There are PowerPoints for the first 20 lessons as well as a number of student hand-outs you can just print out. I have used it successfully with my current mixed ability Year 12 students.
