Hi, I am due to teach a lesson teaching AQA literature poetry to a top set. This is for an observed lesson and I am an NQT. Please can you offer any guidance on the following ideas for my lesson? Starter: Read poem. Circle emotive words, circle punctuation that might convey emotion. Finally, try to summarise what you think the overall theme to this poem is at first reading. Group reading, discussion and teacher explain content of poem further with targeted questioning. Main: Students are given criteria for reaching a grade A/B answer in exam. Together, look at an example of a detailed answer and consider how comments have been extended to mkae a more in depth answer. Students have a go at answering a question using extended comments with quotation and cross-referencing to another poem. Plenary: Peer assessment using "A grade" checklists distributed around class during starter. Fill in what peer student could do to improve their answer. Students successful in using A grade criteria (extended answers and cross referencing) to receive a gold star on checklists or similar. How does this sound? Any ideas on how to change/improve most welcome.
