The is a detailed lesson for the AQA November 2019 resit exam, Paper 2. I have created 3 different leveled responses for each of the questions ie Levels 2,3,4. All the appropriate marking criteria is included also. The reason is to allow students to understand the differences in each level and to improve their own work. Many tasks are included. One of tasks is for students to label each response and mark their peer’s work. This lesson can be used as a walk through or can be used in at least several different lessons, all resources can be adapted. I have used some transitions in the ppt therefore if you would rather not have them then simply click on transitions in the ribbon and click none for each. The power point should be viewed in a slideshow.

Introducing Language Skills, Writer's Visual Words, Changing mood and tone through film

(0)
I have once again introduced students to a film 'Shawshank' where I wanted to show them how a directors develops visual text. Following by various activities where the need to transpose the scene into a written text and use visual pictures in text. Secondly they then have to change the ending of the scene to change the mood. Finally there is peer feedback. Developing language skills and effects on the reader. How a writer's words can change the mood - imagery. Again must be seen through slide show. This lesson is for stu to understand how mood is changed and how important visual language is. I found that through using a fillm and writing stu will get a greater understanding of language and mood when answering Paper 1 Ao2 Ques 2.
