‘Blood Brothers’  Diary Writing  Features / Language Techniques

Another easy-to-follow, fantastic Powerpoint Presentation based on TYPICAL FEATURES and LANGUAGE/STRUCTURAL TECHNIQUES used in Diary Writing. This was created for my lower ability Year 10 class in preparation for the GCSE Eduqas English Language Syllabus (Component 2, Section B: Writing Non-Fiction Texts) combined with their study of the play ‘Blood Brothers’ by Willy Russell (Component 2, Section B: Post-1940 Drama). Includes an EXAMPLE of a DIARY ENTRY written by Mickey (after he discovers Linda and Edward’s affair) for students to ANALYSE, IDENTIFY and SELECT the MAIN FEATURES and LANGUAGE TECHNIQUES used in Diary Writing. Includes thoughtful TASKS and RESOURCES and possible HOMEWORK activities offering a choice of DIARY-WRITING TASKS based on other characters’ thoughts and feelings in the play. Students finally create their own IMAGINATIVE diary writing using the FEATURES and TECHNIQUES they have learnt so far.
