After hours of reading and PD on Pie Corbett’s Talk4Writing, I decided to plan my English lessons around his style of teaching. The idea behind it is fun filled, active and different so my children and I absolutely love it!
*4 day, detailed lesson plan (differentiation included).
*Power Point of the features of a report.
*’Who killed King Tut’ text resource (colour coded).
*Report starters- which allow the children to get into the mind of writing report style sentences.
*’Box it up’ plan to allow children to understand it in sections.
*Text mapping opportunities- which allow children to act out and DRAW the entire report so they can recite it, thus learning the sentence structure orally.
I have put a lot of detail into the lesson plan, so it can be easily followed to apply this style of teaching to your English lessons.
The idea behind it is:
Week 1= Imitation Phase.
In this week, children need to learn off a text to fully immerse themselves in the style of writing, structure, language etc. This is done through actions and also text mapping (drawing pictures).
Only when children fully understand a text type, should they begin to write. The writing of a report will be done at the end of week 2. (This resource is only week 1).
By the end of the week, your children should fully understand the features of a report, and should be able to recite the whole thing using their text map.
It’s lots of fun and a fantastic scaffolding for children to understand before they write.
Give it a try!
