These instructions were designed for students making posters for a seventeenth-century assessment. They can be used for classwork, for just about any purpose. Thinking about posters, dvd and book covers can help students organise their thoughts for writing essays.
Another discussion starter, can be used with any suitable subject. As with all class activities, equality of access has to be borne in mind.
I used this with Margaret Cavendish's Female Orations, each group making an image of the 'lady' described by Cavendish in her 'academy'. I then photographed the images for display on the class vle. The idea can be used with any suitable text/s. As with all class activity, equal opportunity has to be borne in mind.
A good way of approaching a 'difficult' text, particularly suitable as an ice-breaking exercise for new students. Very good for Medieval/renaissance/early modern, but can be used with any suitable text from any period.
A generic ready-to-use or adaptable resource for explaining how to write an explanatory text in support of a project. This is used in literature projects, as an aid to assessment, but can be used in order to help devise learning outcomes and assessment criteria. For more on creative assessment criteria, see the ESC project, on the ESC site.
