Students’ prior knowledge and experience:

Prior to today’s lesson, students completed their unit of work on short stories.
Learning purpose: The purpose of today’s lesson will be to introduce students to persuasive texts and their

LOOK AT CONTENTION and explain what it is.

10 mins
‘I have a dream’ video
Emmeline Pankhurst ‘Freedom or Death’

Between each video ask students what they think the contention was.
Management of behaviour:
As per what I have observed, asking students to be quiet by name and by stopping and
looking at them. Moving them if they continue to talk.

Lesson conclusion:
A brief discussion to reaffirm the meaning of contention to ensure that students are
beginning to grasp it and understand how to identify it.

Lesson Evaluation:
My time management for this lesson wasn’t the best. The discussion I had with the class about persuasive texts
went on for too long.
In regard to organisation, I should have had copies of each speech and the article I wanted them to refer to ready
for them to go.
My management of students was not the best in terms of behaviour. This was my first class with them so it is
difficult not knowing their names.
I did enjoy the discussion with the class, however, I need to mindful of selecting the quiet students to give them
an opportunity to talk and give their opinion.
