AQA GCSE Vocabulary Revision Activity

Students are given a key word each in small groups and asked to provide:

  • a description
  • specific features (what makes this key word different from other similar bits of vocab
  • an example of its use from the set works studied
  • misleading example (example of its use or a description which might confuse people or highlight common misconceptions (e.g. for texture, “what the music feels like” or for polyrhythm, “a rhythm played by someone called poly”).

A good starter activity which can sometimes be expanded out to a longer task if students are enthusiastic. Pupils often really enjoy developing funny misleading examples.

Developed for use with AQA GCSE but would be applicable to any syllabus
