#9 ‘Language Mountain’

I suppose this resource should be included in the last post, ‘#8 Exam Support Materials’ as it’s a great revision tool for Year 11. Instead, I’ve decided to post it separately as many followers have retweeted andĀ given it a favourite.

I like this resource because it’s fun. It’s an engaging and effective way for students to revise and remember the process of answering exam questions. In my Year 11 lesson today, a student commented that they appreciated my resources because they “creative”, “colourful” and “different”. Anything that makes students want to learn is great in my book.

The ‘mountain’ doesn’t take long to cut out and is easy to use. Students start at ‘base camp’ and work their way up the four peaks (different stages of analysis) which results in six PEE paragraphs. The base of the pyramid reminds students of the key language features and acts as support providing students with useful sentence openers.

It can be adapted to almost any subject! Try it.
