AQA New 2017 Specification: English Language, Paper 2 Section A: Nonfiction Reading

10 fully resourced lessons to prepare students for the AQA English Language Paper 2, Section A exam: 'Writer's Viewpoints and Perspectives'.

This resource bundle includes:

Two powerpoint presentations totalling 142 slides.
A full lesson by lesson scheme of work including clear learning objectives and outlining assessment opportunities.
Eight different extracts to use with students from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

Each lesson is clearly structured with learning objectives, learning start activities, learning review activities and opportunities for students to demonstrate and assess their learning in a number of ways.

The lessons aim to develop a common approach for tackling each question to build students' confidence. There are a number of opportunities for students to tackle the different question types and the presentations provide clear steps and guidance to support students during the assessment process.

Model answers and assessment sheets also included.

Extracts included:

'American Sniper', Chris Kyle
'The Charge of the Light Brigade', William Howard Russell
'Letter to My Mother', Wilfred Owen
'A Beautiful Job', Gunner William Towers (WW1)
'The Death of Lord Nelson', William Beatty
'We Shall Fight Them on the Beaches', Winston Churchill
'Surrender Speech', Chief Joseph (taken from the AQA Reading Support Booklet)
'The Gettysburg Address', Abraham Lincoln

In addition to this, the presentations also include some optional Paper 2, Section B questions that link to the extracts and aim to develop students' nonfiction writing skills.

The lessons and extracts are focused around the theme of war so they can be linked with the 'Power and Conflict' AQA poetry anthology to develop students' contextual understanding for the English Literature exam.

Any feedback on the resource would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you for the hard work that went into this. I only dipped in with a top set Year 9 class, but they really enjoyed it and I will use it with GCSE classes in future!
