Journey's End Activity Pack


"This is one of the best GCSE packs that I have ever seen."
This is one of our best ever publications and reviewers strongly agree…


A wealth of differentiated activities to teach this drama text, with worksheets for every aspect of the play. Contains worksheets for:
  • Getting into the text (research tasks)
  • Act One and Act Two, split into sections
  • 'Character Spotlight'
  • 'Theme Focus'
  • 'Writer's Technique'


The special 'exam technique' worksheets are structured so students can can build a range of skills, focusing them on being able to answer extract-based questions and questions on 'the novel as a whole' — fulfilling essential requirements for exams and controlled assessment.

"The resource encourages students to take a critical approach to the language and themes of the play. The tasks are skills-based but at the same time would foster a passion for the text and for the study of Literature. There is an excellent focus on both language and literature."

"Throughout the activities students are encouraged to look at the distinctive language given to each character, to how this fits in with the action of the play and to consider stagecraft. This integrative approach would provide an excellent 'reading' of the play and meets the requirements of controlled assessment or an examination question."

"This resource would fill both teachers and students with confidence. It was a pleasure to read and would be a huge asset to a teacher."
J Whitbread, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

 


Usefully includes:
  • 'Get Creative' activities to encourage further research into WWI and develop writing skills for specific purposes, i.e. letters, newspaper articles, autobiograhies...
  • Wilfrid Owen poetry for comparison and discussion points
  • Assessment Objectives in 'pupil-speak'
  • Lists of 'extract-based' and 'whole-text' questions



What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3996)
'This is a fantastic resource: immediately useful to teachers and students alike; an exemplary publication. This caters for students of all abilities and teachers of all experiences which is certainly a tough balancing act. It is a complete scheme of work ready to be realistically taught in a modern classroom full of noisy children! It has a clear eye on the exam at the end of the unit but doesnt head there so quickly and with such focus that we forget to enjoy the play! All activities are pedagogically sound. High expectations are set for all students using this resource. I really think this resource is outstanding. I think it is so wide-ranging in terms of the pupils and teachers it would appeal to that it will sell really well. I think this is also fantastic in its approach to literary study in general students learn really useful tips about essay planning/writing, about annotating and about note-taking. This author really seems to care about the all-round literary development of pupils, not just that they pass the exam when it comes. I'm really impressed!' J Williams, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'This is one of the best GCSE packs that I have ever seen. The resources would extend Gifted and Talented Students and the style of thinking and working would provide useful training for students wanting to continue to A Level English Language or Literature. I like the fact that the scheme of work starts with independent thought and investigative work on the part of the student. The resource encourages students to take a critical approach to the language and themes of the play. The tasks are skills based but at the same time would foster a passion for the text and for the study of Literature. There is an excellent focus on both language and literature. Throughout the activities students are encouraged to look at the distinctive language given to each character, to how this fits in with the action of the play and to consider stage craft. This integrative approach would provide an excellent 'reading' of the play and meets the requirements of controlled assessment or an examination question. This resource would fill both teachers and students with confidence. It was a pleasure to read and would be a huge asset to a teacher.' J Whitbread, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
