Product Description
A brilliantly, funny short story by Paul Jennings (not in the pack as still in copyright - available in the compilation of short stories 'Unreal') A great read for all students but especially for boys and reluctant readers - a great twist in the tale 7 page story. A 40 slide lesson by lesson power point (6 to 8 lessons depending on the speed and ability of the class) is accompanied by 3 graphic organizers and a marking criteria/rubric.
The scheme focuses on building two specific reading skills - locating and selecting information and infer/deduce - reading between the lines. Students write P.E.E. (point, evidence, explanation) paragraphs and focus on improving their drafts. The word wall helps them build and develop vocabulary and the exemplars help them to recognize the standard they are aiming for. The graphic organizers help students to explore and formulate their ideas on characters and themes and the story structure organizer helps students recognize the structure of a story and identify exposition, climax, resolution etc.
The pack also includes the fiction superhero challenge cards (available as a separate resource to use with any story/novel) that can be used as extension tasks, homework activities or main lesson tasks if you want to extend the lessons by adding writing tasks.
