Short Non-Fiction Unit with emphasis on close language analysis

A series of PPTs with two exemplar paragraphs for close language analysis of non-fiction. Texts were provided in a file from this website (sorry, can't remember who posted them).

Diverse Voices: World Literature KS3

This is a block on literature from around the world, extracts, poems and web links to working pdfs, with an emphasis on teenage voices, activists and exploration of inequality.I have included some of the tasks and exercises we did around these pieces. We started this before the George Floyd protests began but it has felt very timely and fascinating to work on these issues as they became more and more topical. We also looked at some colonial writing like HoD, Out of Africa and Shooting an Elephant.Includes: The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, We Should All be Feminists, I am Malala, Kite Runner, Lament for SyriaI hope this saves some of you from endless extract collecting!...

Reading for pleasure at KS3: an alternative to buying in reading programmes

A reading programme based on free-reading at KS3. Rather than online testing or comprehension questions, the programme relies on a range of writing activities linked to reading, along with the minimum expectation of 20/30 minutes reading per night.It uses the Rosenshine principles of retrieval practice, alongside promoting tier 2 vocabulary and inference skills. This is based on students having a bi-weekly lesson; this SOW has sessions planned for our Autumn term, but also has a template for lesson prompts and writing tasks.I have printed and laminated these, to make packs for use by students whilst teachers monitor engagement with reading through their writing tasks....

Literature through the Ages SOW

This SOW is meant to increase pupils' cultural capital. It starts with the general information about literature, introduces literary timeline, explains how literary canon is created. It then moves to Ancient Greece the development of writing, Homer, the philosophers, Aesop's fables - oral tradition. Next there is the study of the Greek theatre - Antigone by Sophocles. Then, we move on to study the Bible and link it to the story of creation in the GreekMythology. After that there is the closer look at the Medieval Period -Chaucer, The Renaissance and Paradise Lost, and finally the Romantics and poetry. This SOW included the baseline assessment (lesson to introduce as well) and the end of unit assessment (the Romanticism). There are 6 core lessons and some of the suggested lessons - it is a work in progress and I will upload all lessons at the end of this half term.... MORE
