English Language Paper 2 Section A (Collection 1- War) AQA GCSE

(0)
2 weeks of lessons to introduce English Language Paper 2 Section A- Writer’s viewpoints and perspectives. The texts are taken from AQA Paper 2 resource booklet (available on AQA website) and are on the theme of conflict: As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning by Laurie Lee I see my wife coming off the field of battle by Tim Dowling The lessons introduce students to the skills and AO’s required for each question and provide students with a clear structure to answer each question. There are also model answers for students to mark and match against the mark scheme. As I am using this with my year 11 students I have interleaved Literature skills by using the poems from the Conflict cluster as starter tasks. The aim of this is to aid students’ revision of the poems but also refresh language analysis skills. The poems link to the themes of the non-fiction texts selected. The aim is for students to spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each lesson revising the poetry skills which can then be applied to the rest of the lesson. These could also be used as ‘unseen’ poetry revision for those that have studied the ‘Romantic’ cluster. Activities aim to build a routine with students that they can apply to their exam. Approaching different texts by following the same steps is important. Activities are aimed to be kept to close timings where indicated to help students build their time management skills for the exam. Additional lesson information is available in the notes sections of some slides. More resources for this paper to follow shortly.

These lessons are intended to accompany a class reading of each chapter of the novel and develop skills needed for the new specification AQA Literature examination.

There is a full scheme that is available to buy in the shop section which has a focus on the presentation of conflict within the novel and contains two formative assessment points and a final summative assessment. There are links in the notes section of the PPTs to an audiobook of the novel that is available on youtube and has specific times for each chapter listed in the comments section: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qY-X3PU1WFs.

This is ideal to use with students in the Autumn term and the lead up to Christmas as they are able to get the flavour of the text while also developing key GCSE creative writing skills. Students will consider how Dickens uses character names to reflect personalities. Students then read an extract from the novel which contains Scrooge and his nephew. Students consider how they would perform this section on stage thinking about body language. They will then create a character thinking about how they can describe body language to reflect a character's personality.
