Nonfiction Writing: Language Paper 2 Q. 5 Exemplars

Nonfiction Writing: Language Paper 2 Q. 5 Exemplars

Four examples of writing combining different styles and genres. All extracts are written around the theme of homework. The reason for this is to allow pupils to understand that the same topic can be written about in a number of different styles and genres, and that the crafting is as important as the content when writing for different audiences and purposes.

Dramatic Comedy Genre: An Introduction

Dramatic Comedy Genre: An Introduction

A fully-adaptable PowerPoint which offers an introduction to the study of dramatic comedy as a genre (most likely useful with the study of Shakespeare). The lesson offers visual and practical tasks for pupils to work through in order to explore and begin to understand the concept of comedy as a genre. The activities should take one lesson, but may take two. There is also an opportunity for pupils to apply their learning to an extract from Shakespeare’s ‘Much ado About Nothing’ at the end. This PowerPoint will be most useful with higher-level GCSE students aiming for grades 7,8 and 9 in their study of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado about Nothing’, enabling them to explore method and genre as they read, which will help in their reaching higher levels in the examination. Could be adapted for aspiring grade 6 students. The PowerPoint might also be used as a starting point for A Level English Literature students although further reading and research will be necessary. It will certainly aid less able A Level students who benefit from visual and practical tasks, and discussion (I have used a version of this PowerPoint as a starting point with an AS group for coursework under an old spec).

Much Ado About Nothing: 9 Character Revision Posters

9 colourful revision posters on major and minor characters from Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado about Nothing’. Lovely to display on classroom walls as A3, or could be printed as A4 for revision purposes for any ability students.

My First World Cup!

My First World Cup!

A free worksheet for either English, PSHEE or form time. Pupils can use in a number of ways: Pupils can interview each other. This would work very well in a multicultural classroom so pupils can learn about other people’s teams and histories (after all, not everyone supports England!). Pupils can use for a fun homework and interview a parent, grandparent or older sibling in order to learn more about their team’s history Pupils could ask teachers as part of a competition. (Earliest World Cup remembered; Most games attended; most interesting memory…) Worksheet is editable so add your own
