Quotation Deep Dive & Extended Writing

I have recently been working on developing my pupils' understanding of the many layers of interpretation in a text. I am currently working on close text analysis and securing this skill before moving onto wider, overarching methods with a larger text.

I have created a variety of different resources and lesson aids to support pupils and to encourage the layered analysis approach. Hopefully, by embedding these skills into everyday lessons, they will become so ingrained that pupils will then begin to display this skill independently.

All resources are linked in this blog. I have also included a video to help teachers to understand just how I use each different resource and how these can be used with your own pupils.

I hope it helps!

Thank you so much for the video and the really useful resources. We have just been talking as a staff about how deep analysis skills will become even more essential in this new world of Chat GPT writing. It is essential that students can dive below the surface to analyse the quality of what they are reading. Thank you so much for sharing.
