Narrative Techniques - GCSE English Language Q5 linked to Q2 and 3 Language and Structure (AQA 9-1)
A lesson powerpoint for use with GCSE groups to establish what makes a narrative opening effective by looking for authorial methods at play using the opening of 'A Monster Calls' by Patrick Ness. (You will need to get a copy of the opening but this is available through Google Books). Once pupils have explored the effective methods, they need to understand the impact these have on a reader and then you can use the extract to link back to Q2 (lang) or Q3 (structure) depending on the needs of individual pupils.
