A-level French La Haine 6 essay bundle

A-level French La Haine 6 essay bundle

1) A-LEVEL FRENCH La Haine French Model Essay - Main themes of film director and reaction My response to the A-level essay question Analysez les principaux thèmes ou les principales idées du metteur en scène que vous avez étudié. Comment avez-vous réagi à ces thèmes ou à ces idées ? which is relevant for either the legacy or the new-style A-level courses. This is a great model resource to discuss the importance of structure and to access for vocabulary and essay-writing phrases. We discuss the importance of the PEE model (Point-Evidence-Evaluation) and sometimes get pupils to do group work whereby each group evaluates a paragraph and explains PEE in each to other groups. ***NOW INCLUDES ASSOCIATED EXERCISES FOR PUPILS, INCLUDING PHRASE-FINDER AND TRANSLATION OF EXPRESSIONS WITHIN ESSAY*** "I think this essay will be helpful to any students struggling to get to grips with the demands of the challenge of writing a target language essay on a cultural topic. It would serve as a sound model for how to structure a sufficiently well-argued response, and demonstrates effectively how details should be adduced to explain and justify the points raised." 2) A2 FRENCH La Haine A2 Model Essay - Points positifs et aspects qu'on pourrait critiquer + exercises A model essay on La Haine for the A2 French cultural studies essay writing question "Quels aspects de l’œuvre du metteur en scène que vous avez etudié est-ce que vous trouvez plutôt positifs ? Est-ce qu’il y a des aspects de l’œuvre que vous critiqueriez ? Expliquez pourquoi." This resource includes a 732-word model essay with a variety of points, vocabulary and grammatical structures and also 3 exercises for pupils to complete, including a vocabulary finder task, a reading comprehension and target language response task, and a third task which invites pupils to think of further positives and criticisms of La Haine. 3) La Haine A2 FRENCH Model Essay - Le facteur le plus important pour le succès du film Another model essay in response to an A2 essay writing question from the AQA FREN3 June 2013 Q14b. This can be accessed in a variety of ways in order to help pupils make progress with their essay writing. 4) La Haine A2 Model Essay - How does the film's director seek to provoke strong emotions among viewers A model A2 French essay on the film La Haine and on how Kassovitz seeks to provoke strong emotions among viewers. 5) La Haine A2 Model Essay - Influences of director An exemplar model A2 French essay I wrote on the film La Haine about the influences of the film's director Mathieu Kassovitz. It has a few comprehension exercises thereafter. 5* "Thank you very much for this essay. I really like the exercises at the end too." Mlle Pierre 5* "Excellent - very useful resource. I am not teaching La Haine but it has still provided some valuable inspiration to help support my students on the film we are studying" afyvvmc 6) La Haine A2 Model Essay - To what extent does originality play a role in the film's success A model A2 French essay on the film La Haine. Pupils could be asked to pick out key vocabulary, identify structures used, adapt ideas or even pick out key points made, evidence presented or evaluation made. Extent originality contributes to success Some of the essays have accompanying exercises. Bundle price 18% cheaper than buying essays individually.

3 ESSAYS ON  NO ET MOI

3 ESSAYS ON NO ET MOI

Compilation of three essays written by a teacher and Edexcel examiner based on titles from A Level Legacy past papers, but suitable for the new A Level exam, both at As and A2 Level.The first essay is on topic, the second one on character and the last one on style. My students found it very useful to structure their paragraphs and use analytical language. The first 2 essays are written according to Edexcel Legacy criteria, 270 words max, while there's no word limit on the last one on style. I wrote a very comprehensive essay on style as this is the title that students find the most challenging.
