A lesson that introduces the new specification AQA English language Paper 1.
The lesson focuses on an extract from The Return of Sherlock Holmes.
Students consider what AQA means by critical opinion and then begin to apply their knowledge to the text. The lesson is structured so that students annotate the text as they work and begin to plan a response. They build on their knowledge from Q2 & Q3 and begin to pull all of their ideas together to create a response using a planning grid.
A model answer is included for students to consider as well as guidance on how to form the paragraphs for the 20 mark response.
