Hi Freestyle, which of these schemes of work have you used and with what type of pupils? Which activities have been most successful? I'm wary of downloading anything that costs without recommendations from practitioners. What do your pupils make of them?
Hi fineliner - I've used them with all my GCSEs groups - top, middle and bottom ability. I've also handed them out to my non specialists who can follow the lessons exactly as written (with my direction).
All the resources are included - easy to adapt because they are all electronic.
They are all mapped to current spec Assessment Objectives so makes my job much much easier.
Which were you thinking of using?
I'm not sure its my kind of thing. I wouldn't use the same resource with top, middle and bottom ability groups. If they are suitable for non-specialists they are probably a little over planned for my needs. Is it just you and a non-specialist in your department then? You've got through so much material in three and a half terms - what type of school are you in?
To help colleagues in my school teaching out of subject I launched the blog https://teachingin10.wordpress.com
which breaks down popular English Literature texts at all KSs into 10 points around which to structure a SoW. Please feel free to share with colleagues especially trainees and NQTs. I base posts on feedback about texts people are struggling with so please share as I love to share! Many thanks!
