Discursive Writing Helpbook - Advanced Higher French
Discursive Writing Helpbook contains 3 sample discursive writing pieces framed as reading comprehension exercises, 3 pages of discursive phrases (appropriate complex and sophisticated language) for the Discursive Writing element of the Advanced Higher exam plus 2 pages of (49) practice questions.
When printed out the booklet has the phrases in French and space for the pupils to translate into English.
Discursive Writing Answerbook has the English translations so could be given simply as a vocabulary resource but I have used this version to display the translations on the Smartboard.
The reading comprehension gives the pupils a taste of what is expected and guides them through structuring their own writing as well as introducing useful phrases. I have used the marking instructions to discuss with the class how the examples fulfil or fall short of the standards. They can then refer to these when writing their responses to the sample questions.
