Introduction to writing - PAFT, GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDEXCEL

Introduction to writing - PAFT, GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDEXCEL

This session is a quick paced, fun, interactive session with group and paired activities, handouts include match up tasks, planning tasks, read and obtain tasks and helpful handouts. This is an introductory lesson to writing using PURPOSE, AUDIENCE, FORM, TONE (PAFT) . It is focused for the Edexcel GCSE English Language paper as many of the questions of this paper are multi layered / skilled and ask for layers of understanding from the student in ways that other exam boards don’t. It comes with a “writing gibberish” starter and takes the student through various stages which can help them improve their own writing, get into the habit of planning but also touches upon being able to analyse writing, therefore bridging over both the reading and writing section of the exam. This session is aimed quite low as it is an introduction but does offer elements of stretch and challenge for more able students. It comes with helpful handouts for low ability learners and tackles some more high level concepts such as tone. There is enough material in this resource to be adapted into two sessions if needs be but is also adaptable to include more if necessary. Please be aware that the TES preview does sometimes distort the way the resource looks and this is not always a true reflection. Hope it helps

EDEXCEL PAPER 2 QUESTION 7B - Sophie Lancaster

EDEXCEL PAPER 2 QUESTION 7B - Sophie Lancaster

This lesson is centered around the tragic story of Sophie Lancaster, who was murdered in 2007 for being a Goth. I have used this story over the last 10 years with all my classes as it helps to address prejudice and build tolerance. This session uses the Story of Sophie to introduce question 7B to students. It does this by breaking question 7B into two and only looking at the writers views and perceptions part of the question rather than the comparison part, as I have found in my experience that diving straight into comparing two texts tends to stress and confuse students. This session has enough material to cover 3 hours but has optional tasks and can be altered to suit you or your classes needs, session time and sensitivity levels. It comes with 10 worksheets, a video and full powerpoint with starters, team tasks, individual tasks, plenary, question 7B breakdown, group discussion and homework which focuses on section B of Paper 2. I have found that over the years that this lesson is diverse. It has been used in tutorials outside of the English department and by youth workers when delivering their sessions. I usually invite support workers and youth workers when delivering this session to help support any students for who this may bring up memories or for them or to help students overcome any of their own prejudices. Because of this sessions holistic and cross college appeal it was a big hit with managers and Ofsted. Hope it helps.
