Narrative Writing: WJEC/EDUQAS - Exam Preparation

(1)
This complete resource contains 4-5 lessons worth of preparation work, preparing a narrative that students should be able to adapt/tweak in an exam to fit with unseen titles. The activities included are as follows: - opportunity to create a class success criteria for writing an excellent narrative; - a choice of two different ways of planning their narrative; - a variety of punctuation starters: semi-colons, colons, dashes, brackets and ellipses; - sentence structure (examples of the three types of sentence) and an activity to make students consider how to vary the starts of their sentences; - some peer marking, with specific things to identify; - for weaker students there is a 'checklist' of different elements of writing to include in each of their sections of narrative; - a drama starter activity, before they write their 'main' section of the narrative; - writing time; - mark-scheme & banding at the end of the PPT. There is a 'said is dead' slide, alternatives for replacing 'said' when using direct speech. This could be printed and used as a table-top help card or printed and stuck into exercise books for reference. I've created a 'WOW words' slide that could be used as a group starter activity or completed for homework. In addition to this, there are a couple of slides at the start, which I have used with my students. We revisited their previous narrative, written in exam conditions in a mock. The aim was to show them how by preparing a narrative, they should be able to tweak it and adapt them to suit the unseen titles they'll face in their real exam. These slides may be useful to you when you come to revisit their mock attempt (if not, you can delete!). I've also added a couple of suggestions in the 'notes' section on the PPT slides. I've used it with a Y10 set on the new specification, they seemed to enjoy it and produced encouraging work!
