Teaching Malorie Blackman in Year 8

A fantastic resource, clearly put together by an experienced teacher who knows what they are doing. S Tassiker, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

A fun Scheme of Work with 15 clear lesson plans, pick-up-and-go student worksheets and PowerPoint presentations.

Malorie Blackman's works will challenge, enthuse and stimulate year 8 students of all abilities.

Lessons use engaging activities to look at Malorie Blackman's narrative techniques plus contextual influence and importance by referencing three different texts:

  • Noble Conflict
  • Noughts and Crosses
  • Pig Heart

Lessons build towards a final reading assessment.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5799)
"I really liked this resource; it is very comprehensive in its approach for an author’s study. It’s useful for teachers as it covers the author’s perspective too and the context of the novels she has written as well as looking at actual texts themselves. It also provides an opportunity to look at reading from a wider angle as they get to experience different texts in one scheme which could help to encourage more reading for pleasure in teenagers. This is a well-crafted and extremely detailed resource, which would suit my students and help them develop and improve their analytical reading skills in a fun and engaging way with relevant and up-to-date texts." J Forth, English Teacher
"What a fantastic resource. It aptly covers the new KS3 NC requirement to study an author in depth - and then some! Taking an excellent writer for young people and picking several of her key pieces for study really works. I like how much is done for you in this resource - lesson plans, worksheets, powerpoints, youtube clips - saving a lot of time, effort and searching on the part of teachers." P Town, English Teacher
"This resource will be a great addition to a department as it is ready to use. There is a scheme of work overview, powerpoints and lesson plans which make it great for any trainee members of staff and also those who need some new schemes to match the new curriculum. ’m pleased to see the list of suggested websites for the research task and also YouTube clips which have been identified and checked. This will save teachers a lot of time and also keep students focused and supported. I love the ‘Malorie and the Media’ section as it includes Twitter feeds and other media relevant to the students. I feel that this resource enhances learning through encouraging the students to be much more independent than other resources." K Greaves, English Teacher
"A fantastic resource that has clearly been put together by an experience teacher who knows what they are doing.The lesson outline is a fantastic way for teachers to easily be able to pick and choose or move things around if they need, adding flxibility. The clear learning objectives link to the curriculum and test a diverse range of skills. Excellent!" S Tassiker, English Teacher
