  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Disaster Survival Project

A project for Writing in Different Styles and making use of ICT in English.

Disaster can strike at any time - and can affect any of us. How would you cope? What would you do? How would you wish you'd been better prepared?

Whether the disaster is floods, drought, war, invasion, plague or pestilence the interconnected activities within this project give your students the opportunity to look at their own survival skills, undertake research in how others have survived disasters, think how they could construct a shelter or make their escape, isolate themselves successfully or work alongside others to build a new life. Most importantly they will stretch their imaginations and even their awareness of themselves.

All this takes place within the framework of KS3 English - writing in a variety of styles, combining text and graphics, writing reflectively as well as with a purpose and cooperating and negotiating with others. All these activities are part of the English programmes of study and can be used to assess your students' skills in speaking and listening, reading and writing.
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (716)
'I particularly like this resource because it has the flexibility for students to take control of their own learning. It has fun and imaginative ideas and activities; is attractively presented and would inspire some really interesting work.' V Kennedy, Lead Planner and Independent Reviewer
'I think this resource is good and covers a variety of different aspects of teaching English through one project... The idea that the students have a folder and an end product as such gives them something to aim for which can help keep them motivated. A relevant resource for both Geography and English.' C McFlynn, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'The author has done extensive research in order to put together such an exciting, original resource... I particularly liked the varied assignments, the clear, straightforward instructions to the pupils and the links to further reading... Extensively covers the requirements of both the English and ICT Year 9 NationalCurriculum. A great resource and I look forward to using it when it is published!' M Evans, Literacy Coordinator and Independent Reviewer
'I think the project lends itself to the development of both reading and writing skills. It can provide creative ways of approaching AFs and preparing students for GCSE coursework too... It is engaging and I like the fact that it promotes independence. It also enhances effective Internet research skills, which (although students are usually very IT literate) they really need to sharpen.' A Baiden, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
