Resources for teaching The Terrible fate of Humpty Dumpty desperately needed!

Discussion in 'English' started by Juliet1982, Feb 19, 2010.

  1. I am going to be teaching this soon and really need some ideas or resources! I'd never even heard of this play before and I've not taught playscripts, other than Shakespeare, before either, so would be grateful for anything anyone has! Thanks!
  2. In one of the versions of the play, there are a whole load of suggested activities and ideas to do. (Doesn't help that I can't remember which version does it?! [​IMG])
    I collated a load of resources into a booklet intended to be used as a way of helping non specialists "teach" (in the loosest sense of the word) the play and for pupils to be able to work at their own pace regardless of teacher/different teacher. The school I did it for were in dire straits over staffing and needed something that could be taken at the pupils' own pace and generated very little marking. Often the pupils didn't have the same member of staff in front of them from lesson to lesson so the booklet is very limited really. It's not, therefore the best 'teaching' material but it did the job they wanted. I wouldn't normally prepare resources this way!
    Would this help?

  3. I don't have an electronic copy of my SOW but I do have lots of powerpoints. I taught this to a very low ability group (low level 2s to around a level 3) and a middle set (3H-4H), if you let me know what ability group you are teaching I'll send the relevant PPTs.

  4. I am just about to start teaching The terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty to a low ability Y7. I would be very interested in your power points if they are still avaiable . The group is L2-4

    We have a scheme of work that has been written at our school with a lesson plan for every lesson - i didnt write it (and am not sure really what it is like) but I can email it to you.

  6. have you tried googling? I found a good scheme of work that way. I have adapted it to powerpoint - I'd be happy to email it to people.
  7. Hi

  9. I am just about to start teaching The terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty to 2 groups of yr 7. One is a top set (up to level 6/7) and the other is a low ability Y7 (3-4). I would be very interested in any resources people have that they are willing to share! I am an overseas trained teacher teaching in England and the school has NO schemes of work or resources! My address is mrshicks1@hotmail.com if anyone has anything to share.
