Three lessons using an extract from Bill Bryson’s “Notes from a Big Country” on the theme of junk food. The lesson sequence is as follows:

  1. With a worksheet of devices, students learn the techniques that writers can use to create humour. They then identify these devices in the extract.
  2. The second lesson is transactional writing where students write an article to persuade their class mates to eat healthily in timed GCSE exam practice conditions.
  3. The third lesson is a feedback lesson after the articles have been marked. The folder includes a WAGOLL from a real GCSE student and exercises to help students make their conclusions more powerful.
