'Private Peaceful' is a rich text offering a lot personally, emotionally but also as a teaching tool. In this resource, it focuses on how authors cater for purpose, audience and effect.
It starts with a grid where you can look at different techniques around language, structure and imagery with pupils. Then the worksheet goes through pupils identifying and changing different writing methods to see what effect authors have within their texts, before finishing with creative writing tasks to test what pupils have learned about writing for purpose and impact.
There will be more to come in terms of guided reading - enjoy!
Literacy Stars is the creation of a secondary school English teacher who loves nothing better than a good resource and seeing kids enjoy reading and writing.
