Creative writing pack for GCSE English Language Paper 1 8700
In this pack are several resources previously used for the Unit 3b AQA English Language (4705) legacy specification. I have since updated it to suit general creative writing activities for GCSE 8700.
Please be aware that this covers the piece of writing based on a short sequence from a film.
There is a 40 slide PPT covering possible film clips, mind mapping, planning, using tense, ambitious vocabulary and effects of writing for certain audiences/genres. I have designed this for four 90 minute lessons as I have a GCSE resit class in mind but these resources can be padded out or used over a longer period of time.
I have attached worksheets and PPTs that you can use as starters as well as a teacher guide for the lessons. I have included example lesson plans and guidance on what starters to use etc. This SOW will take you right up to the assessment. All of the images have been found via Microsoft Office and I have only used images with creative commons licenses. The film clips are provided via an external link mostly to youtube. I find that the less you show your students, the more they use their imagination!
