AQA-style Language Paper 2B 200 Word Writing Challenges
The idea for the 200 Word Writing Challenge originates from @Xris32 on Twitter. Inspired by a set of 200 Word Challenges shared by Twitter via @Team_English1, I have produced a number of 200 Word Challenges in the style of writing task typical of the new AQA English Language Paper 2B. You can see a couple of the slides as examples.

UPDATED AUGUST 2017: Now includes 50+ slides, created using Adobe Spark Note, each containing a statement to which students are asked to respond, in a particular form and for a particular purpose, AQA-style Language Paper 2B, with some examples of how it can be adapted to other areas of the GCSE exam papers for both Language and Literature!

The challenge is provided by the fact students cannot write more than 200 words, encouraging concision, and the response must include specific rhetorical devices listed on the slide as well as a particular word (if given: it's on some slides, not others!)

The software package used is Adobe Spark: it's FREE and very simple to use. If you like these, have a go at creating some of your own!

Matt :)
