Teaching David Almond in Year 7
Specifically written for the new 2014 KS3 English National Curriculum.
A fun and stimulating scheme of work with 15 one-hour lesson plans, worksheets and 14 PowerPoints, which supports your teaching of David Almond in detail through four texts:
- My Name is Mina
- Wild Girl, Wild Boy
Each lesson focuses on a key element of Almond’s writing by referencing a specific text. Challenging yet engaging reading and writing activities, spoken language, teamwork, independent research and wider reading.
Lessons build towards a final reading assessment on The Savage to consolidate the knowledge gained over the 15 lessons.
Plus! Each lesson is cross-referenced to the current KS3 English AFs to help you with targeting assessment.
A comprehensive resource which clearly references National Curriculum Assessment focuses. The 2014 NC requirement to study an author in detail is clearly fulfilled by this resource. A Davenport, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
