This literacy module, anchored by a 750 word outline of The Miners' Strike, consists of a number of activities designed to improve reading comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary. It provides a useful introduction to texts set during this time, e.g. Billy Elliot and Pride.
The pack consists of:
1. The Miners' Strike - a factual reading text. 750 words.
2. Multiple Choice Quiz based on the text (10 questions). This is the simplest task and is designed for the weakest students.
3. Questions based on the text. These are low order questions. Their function is to ensure understanding of the text.
4. Vocabulary tasks. Crossword and word search. Fun activities to ensure students are familiar with words needed for discussion of the strike.
There are 8 pages of activities. I'm selling this as a Word document, so that it can be edited. There are a number of images in the text which you might choose to delete if you want to cut down on photocopying costs.
I developed this item to use as an introduction to the 2014 movie Pride.
This product, and my other resources for Pride, can be purchased at a reduced rate as part of a bundle. Check out Pride - Activity Bundle
