The Seven ages of man- William Shakespeare

The Seven ages of man- William Shakespeare

I created this lesson during a topic titled "The history of the English Language". It explores language features used within the poem and exploration of key quotations. I have attached the poem as a blank copy for students to annotate and analyse. Included is a model answer, broken into a writing format for students to learn from and then have a go at responding themselves. This also includes a series of peer assessment questions for students to ask and respond to.

Non fiction example texts - GCSE English Language AQA SPEC 8700

Non fiction example texts - GCSE English Language AQA SPEC 8700

Not many students willingly pick up texts from the 19th, 20th or 21st century to read for leisure. However the new AQA English Language exam will give students a range of texts from those eras, therefore I have pieced together a useful booklet of non fiction texts from a wide range of time periods. This booklet covers topics such as war, health, education and includes letters, diary extracts and autobiographies. Each topic has a modern text alongside a text on a similar topic but from another era in order to help students compare texts and writers viewpoints. Texts includes diary entries by Karl Pilkington and Anne Frank, autobiographies from Jessica Ennis and Billy Connolly, BBC articles looking at Stephen Hawkings view of the NHS next to a letter sent to The Times by Florence Nightingale and much more. Hope it helps
