AQA November 2017 LANG Paper 2 Writers' Viewpoints "The Ragged School" etc Support Resources

These resources support the AQA Paper 2 Writers' Viewpoints and Perspectives exam paper from November 2017. They include a detailed support PowerPoint with model answers/tips etc and support posters with further detail/annotated extracts/more model answers/suggestions etc. This would be an ideal resource should you want to use this AQA Paper as a MOCK resource prior to the exams in the summer. It is part of a package of resources that I've created to support the Summer and November LANGUAGE and LITERATURE exams (Lang and Lit in summer 2017. and Lang in November 2017). 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

SPAG peer correction activity

SPAG peer correction activity

A useful starter both for correcting the mistake, and also for identifying the reason behind the mistake. This resource was created in response to some controlled assessments, but works just as well out of context as a SPAG activity at the beginning of your lesson or as cover work.
