Ideas for using this resource
The unit planner is comprehensive and provides the HITS alongside the learning activities.
It would also be a useful starting unit for Year 8 and a textbook alternative (as a way of organising your own units and moving away from course books).
The Teacher Powerpoint provides all the audio files and links to quizzes/Quizlet/videos in one place.
The resources for student goal setting, reflection and exit slips/pulse checks give the students a starting point with the language they need to articulate their reflections.
The glossary of grammatical terms is handy for students to stick in their books for reference.
The range of activities and products are meaningful and engaging to students at this level.
There is scope within this unit to revisit or consolidate concepts from Year 7.
