AQA New Spec GCSE English Language - Anecdotes 1hr Lesson PPT and Article Extract

Designed to introduce students to fictional and non-fictional anecdotes.

This is a small example of what I can actually do - please have a look through my shop where most things are discounted from RRP! I put a lot more effort into sold recources.

This includes an example textual anecdote and a clip from a popular Sci-fi series in which the protagonist narrates an anecdote to the audience. There is also some explanation of why it was used and an example Paper 2 Question 5 beginning using an anecdote.

Tere are also some example statements to catalyse the writing of original anecdotes. This lesson can be really fun and inventive and provides crossover with writing for both papers.
