Essential Mini Lessons - Set 16 - Making Literary Judgements

Essential Mini Lessons - Set 16 - Making Literary Judgements


Tour this set here.

Note: This set is available in a discounted bundle of sets 11-20, available here.


In this set of ten editable mini lessons students how to make LITERARY JUDGEMENTS - aka evaluating texts or literary criticism - developing skills in responses to texts and critical thinking.  This resource focuses on:
☝ The lens through which we view texts, and which is created by our experiences, beliefs and values.
☝ The expectations we have of a text or genre before and during our reading.
☝ The techniques used by the creator, the effects of those techniques and what we think about them.
☝ The 'So What?' What does this show us about our world or human behaviours, and why is this important/significant?


Lessons provide clear reference notes, examples and differentiated activities that reinforce understanding. Present, share online or print - all bases are covered! Answers are included, as is a bit of 'glitter' to add a touch of fun to end on a high note!


This is set 16 of 20 from my ❤️ Essential Mini Lessons Series ❤️

Every set is editable and differentiated. Yay!  See previews of every set HERE!

This resource pack includes 4 formats for multiple teaching scenarios
PRESENTATION SLIDES - Students complete the activity that suits their ability level, then you can click to the next slide for answers. Finish that day's learning point by clicking to a third slide which gives a couple of minutes of fun - often English/ELA related. (Perfect for targeted teaching or lesson starters.)

PRINTABLE HANDOUTS of the activity and answer slides. Perfect if you don't have a big screen, for homework or to have at the ready for relief/sub-lessons. Slides are crammed onto pages for the budget-restricted teacher!

A DIGITAL ACTIVITY VERSION - Share online with students who choose their level, then type answers into the spaces provided. Answers are provided in a separate file to send out to students later. Perfect for homework, class work or sub-lessons.

PRINTABLE TASK CARDS - Keep answer cards separate, making them available later for students to self/peer mark. (Perfect for sub-lessons or early finishers.)
