How Do I Improve My Grades In GCSE English writing? PART 1 (14-16 years)

How Do I Improve My Grades In GCSE English writing? PART 1 (14-16 years)

59 pages A clear, concise revision guide to boost your grade, written by a tutor who is familiar with the requirements of the new GCSE examination. It is so simple you can use it for last minute revision. The skills and requirements for the GCSE English language exam are very specific: retrieving information from texts, inference, analysis of language, presentational techniques and comparing texts are some of the skills needed. For writing, students are required to engage the reader and produce a response, which relates to the purpose and audience. This book teaches students how to write using different purposes to inform, explain, argue, advise, describe, persuade, review and how to make the tone and register of their writing suitable for the audience. It emphasises the P.E.E or P.E.T.E.R technique, so students have a blue print (format) to work from; make POINT, give EVIDENCE, comment on TECHNIQUE, EFFECT and RESPONSE. This helps students to develop analytical skills for non-fiction tasks and responses in English literature papers. The students are also taught to use rhetorical techniques groups of three, speaking directly to the reader, rhetorical questions, inclusive pronouns as well as stylistic devices like similes, metaphors and high level vocabulary. The aim of this book is: To help every child gain a grade C in GCSE English. To outline the requirements of the present GCSE course and to teach students to structure and organise a piece of writing. To teach students to look for key words in a task and to plan a suitable response. To teach students to use linguistic and stylistic devices. To show them how to use rhetorical techniques. To teach P.E.E techniques and to teach the analytical skills required for English language and literature tasks. To teach good spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Books We've Read: Reading Display

Books We've Read: Reading Display

Needing some inspiration for my reading corner, I created this display in order to show case the children’s reading books. The idea behind it is that the book templates will be printed out for children to fill in whenever they complete a book. They can draw the front cover and fill in the blurb on the back and the teacher can laminate the books and hang them from a string underneath the heading. It’s a super cute idea to show off all the books that you’re class have read and let’s face it, it looks really colorful in your reading area. Included: *The display name: “Books we’ve Read” *Book templates to print out. (See cover photo for a clearer idea).

KS3 English Language: Dracula

KS3 English Language: Dracula

KS3 Dracula Unit of work 20 lessons. KS3 English Literature Reading and Writing exercises for Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’. Entire unit of work including 20 lessons based on the classical graphic novel published by Classical Comics. The resources can be used as an accompaniment to the original text too. The resources included allow for students to debate motives and themes in the novel and to respond to key sections of the novel commenting upon Stoker’s use of language, use of technique and the intended effect upon the audience. Plot and narrative devices are considered closely too. Writing aspects of the unit encourage students to use the conventions of gothic literature and the introduction to the unit helps students to recognise and replicate the elements of what defines and is typical of the gothic genre. The unit ends with the chilling inevitability of an assessed section from the text with support with modelling responses atypical with KS4 English responses to texts.
