  There’s so much emphasis on sharp memory skills in the current GCSE and A-levels, we’ve chosen a selection of resources to get your classes’ skills up to speed.

Resources for memory recall

Last month we published 20 ideas for making it stick. It includes games and quizzes to help students understand and remember quotations and keywords by bobbing up, telling random stories and even scoring in a penalty shoot-out!

A great go-to plenary resource packed with ideas for self-assessment and reflection, the Assessment for learning ideas pack includes sentence starts for written reflection statements, prompt cards for discussion, a postcard to send home and exit cards.

If you’re teaching a play – Shakespearean or otherwise – Fun ways to memorise Shakespearean quotations includes 13 ideas to support students’ familiarity with key quotations. Many of these would also work well for a prose text or poem.

We also have a set of learning mats which are a perfect aide-memoire, especially while exercise books aren’t too dog-eared!

Fix it writing

Fix it writing provides English teachers, non-specialists and teaching assistants with a step-by-step guide to identifying and ‘fixing’ problems in students’ writing.

Comprising two photocopiable downloads – a teacher handbook featuring detailed session plans and resources and a student workbook – Fix it writing is perfect for targeted support and intervention sessions at KS3.
