This resource uses the topic of plastic pollution to teach students about persuasive language features and the structure of persuasive speeches. Students will identify the structural elements within a given persuasive text, analyse it for persuasive language features and then write their own persuasive speech incorporating these persuasive and structural features.
This resource includes two PowerPoints and a knowledge mat for structural terminology/questions to ask when analysing a text for structure.
The first PowerPoint focuses on understanding what the exam question is asking of the students, strategies for analysing structure (such as the zoom in approach), and terminology. The second PowerPoint focuses on narrateive order and perspective.
This 10 page booklet takes students through the basics of spelling, punctuation and grammar. It covers common mispelled words, strategies for learning spellings, punctioation, and grammar (tense, wear/were/where/we’re). Each section includes an explanation and questions to access learning.
These questions are for the text ‘The Tiredness of Rosabel’ by Katherine Mansfield. This resource cannot be used as a mock paper as the questions do not follow an exam format, however the questions take learners through the skills needed in the exam. The questions cover skills such as making inferences, language analysis, evaluation and comparison.
This PowerPoint guides students through analysing an image, picking up on detail, making inferences and using language to describe. It goes through the content (A05) part of the mark scheme and includes an example paragraph.
This resource also comes with a colour-coded paragraph template for those of lower abiity who would benefit from a more prescriptive approach.
