Scrooge's redemption - grade 6 model essay (AQA Literature paper One)

(0)
An essay which responds to an extract from Stave 3 in which Scrooge begs for Tiny Tim to be spared. A succinct and concise but effective grade 6 essay to model the skills required for AQA Literature paper 1. One possible activity is that students add in alternative interpretations and make the analysis more tentative. Another is that students highlight where marks for each AO are allocated. This extract really helped my upper and lower band groups to unpick the assessment objectives.

Much Ado About Nothing: Simple Plot Overview

A powerpoint which introduces the basic plot of the play. Perfect for SEN, EAL, and visual learners. For the benefit of the kind person who rated this as too simple I would like to point out that this was used for a low-literacy group, hence the over simplification, there’s gratitude huh?

This lesson looks at the success criteria for the spoken language component of the new English Language GCSE (AQA). Students then apply the speeches to clips from the Queen, Michelle Obama and James Corden. It then introduces the task students are to work towards in order to fulfill this aspect of the GCSE.

AQA Lang paper 1 - question 5 prompts

(0)
David Didau’s thinking prompts populated with images to support students with planning for and creating responses for paper 1 question 5. Could be used with Key Stage 3 - designed to empower students and make them think critically, images are loaded towards injecting some cultural capital too. This works best on A3 as a carousel activity.

AQA Paper 2 question 5 - Caroline Flack - kindness

(0)
A lesson which uses the quotation posted by Caroline Flack in Instagram as a starting point for exploring kindness - also links to Mother Teresa’s “Be kind anyway” speech for added SMSC. Ideal for faith schools but useful for all… Could be adapted for KS3 too.

Predicted questions for Media Studies TV game shows with model responses.

(0)
Predictions for all 4 questions on the forthcoming TV Game show 2017 paper, based on pre-release. As a former examiner, I have accompanied this with model answers which use bullet points, spider diagrams and tables but still access the highest mark. The only task I have not answered is the practical task, though I have still predicted this.
