English Language: Understanding Meanings and RepresentationsQuick View

English Language: Understanding Meanings and Representations

This resource included two lessons worth of content plus various activities which helps pupils analyse how meanings and representations are created through language. I have used it for my AS class who are learning the new AQA English Language specification. The lesson applies to Paper 1: Language and the Individual and was used at the very start of the year. It could also be used as a revision lesson though and for GCSE pupils. In the beginning I got pupils to understand what 'representation' means. We looked at different representations of London through various photos and looked at how a men's magazine portrays men and women differently. We then moved on to longer texts, such as a food shop's poster and a website's representation of their company. All the texts are provided within the PowerPoint. I have also included answers to the activities.
