Teaching GCSE Paper 2 Language READING – “Dogs” and “Living Dolls/Watercress Girl”

Teaching GCSE Paper 2 Language READING – “Dogs” and “Living Dolls/Watercress Girl”

Teaching GCSE Paper 2 Language READING – “Dogs” and “Living Dolls/Watercress Girl” These TWO GCSE specific resources are designed to support teaching AQA GCSE Language Paper 2– the “Writer’s Viewpoints and Perspectives” paper. They gather together the insert/paper/ and mark scheme, plus the main resource is a detailed 40 slide Powerpoint for each practice paper which gives tips on how to tackle each question, offers model answers and peer assessment opportunities. They offer your students two more formal opportunities to do a Paper 2 “mock” with full support, before the exams in the Summer. NB: The focus of these TWO resources is the READING section, not the writing. Other similar resources are in my Big Cat Bundles in my shop! Please have a look at my shop and my web site - details are at the shop site, plus lots of other free resources. I offer big value bundles and large scale resources to cover a complete topic. I provide a range of Big Cat Bundles that offer massive price reductions and offer lots of resources in one place. I also have a range of resources to support A Level teaching, particularly relate to TRAGEDY and CRIME. Many of the resources are handmade in order to provide a more personal, original touch. Many are designed for Interactive White Board presentation, or they can be copied into revision booklets etc. Another option is to download onto a school site, like Sharepoint, and allow students to view on their computers etc. If you like what you find, please offer feedback. Thank you and good luck with your teaching.
