This journey-themed KS3 teaching pack aims to increase students’ confidence in tackling unseen and/or challenging texts, introducing the narrative voice and improving their critical reading skills.
The pack comprises an anthology of poems and excerpts from non-fiction and fiction texts from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries along with engaging lesson plans and practical resources.
‘I think teachers will be delighted by the balance between the flexibility of being able to dip in and choose, coupled with some suggested structures to help teachers make those choices coherent. I also think teachers will appreciate the active and imaginative approaches to texts. Collaborative exploration and the development of thinking skills are designed into the suggested approaches. Overall, I'm proud of these materials, and I hope colleagues find them useful and stimulating.’
