Paper 2 AQA English Language GCSE - Revision tips and sentence starters.

(0)
The PowerPoint and accompanying worksheet give brief explanations and timings for each question in Paper 2A in the AQA GCSE English exam. The success criteria are also included and explained so that pupils understand what they need to do to achieve the higher levels. The worksheet links to the PowerPoint and consists of a brief explanation of what is needed for each question and a number of sentence starters. It has been aimed at pupils who are currently working at a Level 3/4 and struggling to write in depth and at length. The sentence starters are quite simple and repetitive but give pupils the scaffolding they need before becoming completely independent. It was originally developed for advanced stage learners of EAL but may also suit some pupils with SEN. The timings given on the sheet allow learners to make sure they leave enough time to complete Part B in the exam. There is also a worksheet for Part B of the exam which briefly explains the different text types and purposes which pupils may be required to produce. There is a checklist for each example of what they are expected to include.

Paper 1, Question 3- AQA GCSE English Language 8700. Structure - A guided approach.

Paper 1, Question 3- AQA GCSE English Language 8700. Structure - A guided approach.

(0)
Self-assessment checklist in 2 formats (landscape and portrait), differentiated annotation activity, modelled annotations, and two differentiated sample responses. This resource aims to address difficulties my EAL students have in attempting the structure question; they often tend to write about language features. I have added challenge to make it suitable for most students. The intended way to use the resource is: 1. Look at the checklist and familiarise yourself with it, especially the terminology that hints at what relevant content should be included. 2. Read sample text- To Kill a Mockingbird. 3. Annotate the text with relevant observations based on understanding of the checklist. 4. Underline suitable quotes the illustrate points. 5. Produce an answer to the question on the checklist. 6. Complete the tickboxes on the checklist to ensure the assessment criteria have been addressed. The aim is to show students the range of possible topics. Many more have been identified than could be used in the time available in the exam; the hope is that students will see that it is not a difficult question once they are familiar with what to address.
