The document is a helpful guide to stretch and challenge students, with a fail-safe acronym to help weaker students guarantee a C grade in the exam. The four-letter acronym reminds students to engage with the structure, form, setting, stage directions, language, context, characterisation and tragedy of Othello.
Tried and tested against AQA's Othello AS and A2 extract question with all students in class getting a grade C or higher!
An extract assessment, containing part of Act 2, Scene 3, with the AQA AS question above. Students are to read and analyse the extract before attempting to pick out points and construct and paragraph or essay answering the question. (The choice is yours!)
After writing their own paragraph, students can read through three exemplar paragraphs. The three paragraphs are well written and answer the question in different ways, but all focus on the same quotes. It is an exercise to help them identify the AQA Assessment Objectives. It contains questions to help them extract useful information.
This task does require students to have a brief understanding of the Assessment Objectives. I recommend printing this resource on A3 paper.
Over thirty sides of Journey's End resources! The booklet guides students through the entire play, asking questions that cover the events, the literary devices and characterisation. The questions are differentiated, allowing students to stretch and challenge themselves based on their answers. It is interactive, with some questions asking for letters to be written, artwork, personal interpretations and reflections.
The booklet concludes with essay questions, essay writing tips and techniques on how to write a strong answer! A great resource which the students enjoy and engage with.
