NEW Specification AQA English Paper 2 Question 3 Analysing Language Features KS4

NEW Specification AQA English Paper 2 Question 3 Analysing Language Features KS4

This is a powerpointed lesson where some teaching will be done to identify language features and gives a timed exam style conditions Question 3 (12 marks task). Start with The red Room extract and PowerPoint to ease the pupils in. The Red Room doesn't have a timed question, but it does make them think about the theme of the extract and inference. You could introduce a timed 12 mark question if you wanted to. I gave my groups the mark scheme (student friendly) and asked them to identify what the differences were between the levels. I then gave them the identify language features sheet, the language features fill in table and the extract to analyse to get them used to identifying language techniques. After that, we focussed on the extract and the language techniques we had identified and we began to write suggestions/inferences about the extract and what could be suggested. I then made up a question for them to answer. On the powerpoint the question is about Charlotte Bronte and how she influences her sister through the use of language - this was done with no teaching and as a cold task for the students to answer. They then used the mark scheme from previously and marked each others answers. Also in here is a Rebecca extract and powerpoint - very similar to the Bronte powerpoint and tasks. Then after having a go at feedback, peer assessing with the mark scheme, they then have a hot task where they will do the assessment with a Charles Dickens extract to see if they have understood and made progress! :)

This would take a whole lesson. Included are: --> One student response answer activity where pupils have to say which response is better and justify why (lines are on the worksheet). --> Question 3 Paper 2 mark scheme (12 marks) for students to use for all activities and worksheets. I also got students to go away and to research what some of the words mean in the mark scheme so they could understand it more. --> An A3 DOUBLE sided Sarah Waters' Affinity language questions 3 worksheet which I used as homework. Includes 2 student responses which pupils have to say which one is better, why and then have a go at the answer themselves 12 marks (lines on the worksheet). --> An A3 Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist language questions 3 worksheet which I used as homework. Includes 4 student responses which pupils have to say which one is the best, why and then have a go at the answer themselves 12 marks (lines on the worksheet). It is for a mid to high ability group from Year 9 - 11 for a lesson, introducing or revision. It took my class a lesson and a half to complete all worksheets. The Sarah Waters' Affinity one could be used as a homework activity. These worksheets makes the students revise language features and writing in PEE paragraphs.

Literacy AQA Style 30 Page Work Booklet 1 Suitable for Years 9-11

Literacy AQA Style 30 Page Work Booklet 1 Suitable for Years 9-11

I have taken the AQA Paper 1 questions 1, 2 and 5 (List 4 things, language analysis and creative writing) and turned them in to a 30 page Literacy booklet. The first half of the booklet consists of language analysis and revision with shorter activities and then the booklet gets progressively harder. The questions turn in to more comprehension based with AQA style questions. There are 4 extracts and lined paper for them to write on. I think this would be suitable for years 9-11 but if you had a very able Years 7 or 8 class, this would challenge them also. Other activities have been put in such as reading activities, thesaurus work and language technique match up to break the booklet up slightly. Extracts are from The Maze Runner, Jane Eyre, Harry Potter and Great Expectations for students to read a range of texts and genres.
