30 minute lesson for Year 7

Discussion in 'English' started by kirkdax, Apr 20, 2011.

  1. I have a job interview and I have to teach a 30 minute lesson for a bottom set Year 7 based on a poem of my choice but the lesson has to be literacy based.

    I have not been given any data or do not know how many pupils will be in the class (despite requesting all this information).

    Do you think it would be OK to focus on alliteration?

    Any ideas/ tips will be greatly appreciated!

    Sounds great....which poem have you decided to do?

    Lots of alliteration based activities on resources....take a look :)

  3. Yeah, sounds good for 30 minutes. I'd be inclined to also get them to create their own alliterations - that will depend on the poem, so that they have not only discovered them in the poem but show their understanding with a short practical activity towards the end - could make for a good plenary.
     
  4. Thanks for the tips! I have decided to go with a Katy Perry song which has alliteration peppered all over the place.
