AQA 8700/1 English Language Complete Paper 1 Set All Questions

This resource is a full Paper 1 resource - covering every one of the five questions - 80+ slides.
It has embedded video clips for use without reliance on connection. It has vast animations which contribute to activities, sound effects and song clips. As well as activities relating to each of the five questions, it also includes timers and initial preparation tasks/group work along with a secondary text-based, timed, activity to assess. There are book recommendations, RRPs and a Partridge in a Pair Tree…(not). But it is quite detailed.

Run the slideshow to see the effects and how it all works. It has had a great deal of work put into to in order to make it fun and enjoyable.

Texts Featured:

The Magicians - Lev Grossman
A Game of Thrones - George R. R. Martin
Treasure Island - RLS
The Maze Runner - James Dashner
The Electric Michaelangelo - Sarah Hall

It also makes use of the Oscar Pistorius trial for Q4. It has no graphic information or images but encourages students to use evidence to form an objective assessment and evaluation.

Structure has been given some serious attention here because it was new when I made this resource.

I use over about 6 hours.

Please also note that this is aimed at 16+ but can easily be edited to fit a younger audience.
