A visually powerful Powerpoint deconstructing the various sentence structures learners need to know for GCSE English Language. This Presentation, combined with various worksheets at key stages, ensures that learners not only learn the various sentence structures, but they also combine with punctuation rules, and sentence development to ensure that learners come away from the lesson more confident of being able to differentiate between the different structures (especially compound and complex), but are also better versed in the use of the comma within both compound and complex structures. This has been an extremely well received resource in the classroom.
This comprehensive PowerPoint, when printed (or emailed) as a booklet, can be used as an English Language intervention and also makes an ideal revision aid. It is modelled on the AQA 9-1 GCSE English Language new specification and includes eight sessions covering both paper one and paper two helping pupils to feel more prepared for their exams. With over 140 slides, this booklet has a series of easy to follow activities, exam questions and model answers for each of the ten questions of the GCSE. Each session is designed for students to be able to work through independently, or in small groups. Personally, I have given it as revision to my students, where they work through the booklet in their own time and use what they have learned on the homework tasks - which I then mark and give feedback on and my pupils have enjoyed the challenges and gained confidence in their exam technique. It could be used for isolation and exclusion tasks, extra revision, class work, homework, for intervention groups, or for GCSE re-sit students. The tasks are aimed at enabling pupils to obtain a grade 5 or above. Skills from all six AQA Assessment Objectives of the English Language course are included, along with extracts from the mark scheme and starter tasks centered around improving the AO6 and grammar skills of the students. There are four GCSE practice papers included: Paper One - Dracula Paper One - The Red Room Paper Two - Bank Robberies Paper Two - Prisons Please check out my other resources. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

This informative and engaging double lesson aims to improve students’ ability to compare and contrast two different texts based on a similar subject. They will focus particularly on the purpose, audience, language, and structure of texts, and will learn to use comparing and contrasting connectives to highlight any similarities and differences. This has always been a crucial skill in English, but has an increased importance in the new GCSE for English Language, as there is a greater requirement for students to be able to make links and comparisons between texts. The lesson follows a clear and logical learning journey, with students learning to: - Understand the key terms 'compare' and 'contrast', and the importance of these skills in English; - Categorise the different features that they can compare, under the headings 'Purpose', 'Audience', 'Language' and 'Structure;' - Read (and identify the key features within) two morally and ethically intriguing texts, offering diverse views of young people in the media; -Compare the two texts, using a clear and concise template, and newly-acquired knowledge of different types of connectives; - Peer-assess each other's comparative essay attempts. Included in this resource pack are: - Whole double lesson, colourful and engaging PowerPoint presentation (Including assessment for learning referral slides) - Cards for card-sorting activity; - Two interesting and thought-provoking non-fiction media extracts (one a newspaper extract from The Evening Standard, and another a persuasive leaflet, both focused on the issue of how young people are perceived.) - Template for main comparative analysis task; - Full teacher guidance plan.
