IB Language and Literature Part 1: Language and Power

This is a series of lessons for Part 1: Language in Cultural Contexts of the IB Language and Literature course. They may also be relevant to A-Level English Language.

These lessons are focused on the topic of Language and Power. Although listed as three lessons, these are likely to last 6-8 lessons depending on the pace you move and depth you cover in class. The topics covered are:

  • Standard English vs Non Standard English (using a Dizzee Rascal/Jeremy Paxman interview)
  • Language and Immigration
  • Language and Immigration with a case study focus on Australia.

There are assessment opportunities throughout which could be set as homework tasks. Challenge tasks are also embedded. Some resources have been adapted from InThinking ideas for lessons.

There is also a final assessment included: preparation for a Paper 1 exam using two texts on immigration as sources.
