Unseen Poetry Reading Analysis Effect Language GCSE Eng Lit Paper 2 Plath "Wuthering Heights"

Unseen Poetry Reading Analysis Effect Language GCSE Eng Lit Paper 2 Plath "Wuthering Heights"

A 19-slide powerpoint which guides the students through the reading skills that they’ll need to employ when tackling the unseen poetry question for their GCSE English Literature exam. The lesson begins with the analysis of a short prose extract from Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” and then moves onto Plath’s poem where the students are initially asked to draw parallels between Bronte’s writing and Plath’s. The lesson then focuses on language with slides that question the students about the effect of the connotations of particular words and invites them to explore the impact of a semantic field. The students are given a template for the structure of their response to an unseen poetry question - and the ppt ends with a model paragraph (though the intention is that this model could be introduced earlier to address any gaps in students’ knowledge - or, indeed, for brighter students, the model could be omitted altogether). If you use this resource in the classroom, I’d be very grateful if you could take a moment or two to leave a review. Best wishes, Jane.

AQA GCSE Eng Lang Paper 2 Q 4 viewpoints perspectives walkthrough close reading analysis model

AQA GCSE Eng Lang Paper 2 Q 4 viewpoints perspectives walkthrough close reading analysis model

I planned this for my year 11 class in the run up to their second mock exam, the first mock exam having revealed gaps in their knowledge and understanding of the skills required for question 4 on paper 2 of the English Language exam. There are 17 slides in total; they lead the students (I hope) in a methodical way through the requirements of the question and there is a close focus on the use of the bullet points in helping the students to structure an answer that meets the requirements of the mark scheme. The two texts used are: Ed Cumming writing in “The Guardian” about the appeal of Wetherspoons and George Sims writing about the appeal and effect of alcohol in “How the Poor Live”.

The Complete Death of a Salesman - Acts 1 and 2 - 9 Lessons

The Complete Death of a Salesman - Acts 1 and 2 - 9 Lessons

These powerpoint presentations are beautifully illustrated and very engaging for the students. Miller’s ‘Death of a Salesman’ is made up of two long acts. So I have created four separate lessons for each act. These presentations not only capture the narrative of the story with structured tasks, but more importantly highlight the themes and the motifs. I have taught this play and used these resources as lesson materials, as revision materials and also as homework. Each of these presentations include a starter activity, summary and analysis questions, an academic writing task, an extension task and a plenary.
