Sixth form inspiration

    Hi
    I just wondered if anyone would mind sharing some ideas of typical lesson plans with sixth form students. I'm conscious at the moment mine are very samey and dare I say, a bit dull.
    Inspiration is needed!

    It would probably help if we knew what you do at present.

    My sixth form teaching varies a lot. My lower sixth group respond best to being talked to. My upper sixth group are brighter and have no interest in anything I have to say so I tend to make them do the work and then feedback. When they've realised they've put no effort in they tend to listen to what I have to say.

    A sample lesson from tomorrow is going to go: discuss the storyline of The Glass Menagerie. Then complete a connections graph linking the characters in terms of 'love' (in its widest sense) - what sort of love is presented, find some quotes to back up. What other texts can they link it to that they have studied? How is this play different from other plays they've studied?

    Feedback and go.

    I'm generally rather uninspired with sixth form too.
