About a Boy Weaker Learner Support Pack
The resource is pitched at those students who like English but find it difficult, and those who are indifferent. It aims to engage weaker learners with the text, support their understanding of key literary aspects and consolidate their knowledge ready for an exam.
A perfectly-pitched resource. This resource is well-constructed with both indifferent and enthusiastic weaker learners in mind. E Evans, English Teacher & Independent ReviewerIncludes:
- Write-on worksheets to engage students with five main events, key characters, themes, form and structure, and language
- Accessible plot summaries in the style of the key character to be used before and after reading the book to support students’ understanding
- Other stimulating activities, such as essay practice, a quiz, terminology and key word card game and mind maps
- PowerPoint presentation exploring key contextual points
All activities are linked to student friendly assessment objectives so that students understand how their studies relate to their exam.
