KS3 English Reading: Journalism (Lesson 1)

In this topic, students will read a range of different types of journalism. Focussing on nature as our theme, we will explore opinion pieces, lifestyle articles and investigative journalism.

We will learn to analyse language for meaning, discuss how writers can create different tones such as positivity or outrage. We will explore how language can be used to inform and persuade, and understand how writers can structure articles in effective ways.

Analysing non-fiction texts is a key skill for KS3 students and will form part of any English GCSE they eventually take. English language papers always involve students having to analyse writer’s use of language and structure and may include non-fiction texts such as journalism. The broader range of non-fiction texts students have dealt with, the more confident they can be of success in an exam.

Lessons are standalone, though we do advise attending all lessons. These lessons also link with the Journalism Writing lessons on Thursdays.

Prior Learning: Students need not have studied this topic before. If they have, then this is a  great opportunity for revision!

Please note:

  1. Lesson titles are a guide only, exact content may vary (lessons aren’t all written at the time of posting and sometimes inspiration strikes!).
  2. Please ensure the Zoom name of the learner matches that entered on the ticket below. Their Zoom name is their ‘password’ to enter the lesson. Incorrectly named students may not be admitted to the lesson.
  3. Learners are advised to join the Zoom room at least 10 minutes before the start of the lesson. Assistance with IT difficulties is not possible once the lesson has started.
  4. Ticket sales will end at least one hour before the lesson is due to start – don’t delay, book today 🙂
