A Level German essay questions - all texts

A Level German essay questions - all texts

(7)
Using the freely available SAMs and past papers for 2017 and 2018, I have created this comprehensive list of essay questions on the literary texts/films set by AQA, Edexcel and Eduqas/WJEC. Use the filters at the top of each column (click the little downward arrow) to show only questions for the texts you teach, and you can easily create a list of past paper questions to give to students. This makes it easy for you to set essay tasks, and when the time comes, for students to complete their own revision essays. If you found this resource useful, please leave a comment - would you like me to create a version which includes the suggested content from the markschemes too?

AQA-style AS/A Level Speaking Card: Familie im Wandel, Adoption

(1)
This AQA-style speaking card for A Level/AS was inspired by this resource (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-a-level-german-2016-speaking-card-familie-im-wandel-11801641). I've used the original source text (link given in resource) to create a speaking card and questions which very closely mirror the specification.

This is a series of reading exam questions in the literary extract format, compiled from papers currently available (in 2020) across the exam boards for GCSE German. Download includes two booklets in pdf format: Teacher version: 32 pages of questions with the answers immediately after each question (for some of the simpler questions I haven’t included answers, but for ones where there is ambiguity, e.g. written answers in English, it is always included). Pupil version: 39-page booklet containing the same questions as above, with the answers compiled at the end. Teachers can choose not to include the answer section when printing if desired. NB the page numbers from both booklets should match - in the Pupil version there are gaps/blank pages where the answers appear in the Teacher version.

Der Besuch der Alten Dame - how to write an essay - sentence-builders
hasslethehoghasslethehog

Der Besuch der Alten Dame - how to write an essay - sentence-builders

(1)
A really useful resource for showing students how to use formal essay language to get their point across in A Level German essays. This is the hardest element of the new A Level - both to teach and for students to do themselves. This resource provides a crucial stepping stone between knowing the work of literature really well, and constructing a sound answer in essay form. To use each sentence-builder, simply choose an option from each box moving from left to right. Ideas for use by students: orally, give students English sentences to translate into German (stick to options given in full in the tables to familiarise them with what they contain) write short paragraphs in English mixing simple sentences stating events with sentences built from the sentence-builders - students then translate into English. give students a target when writing an essay to include a certain number of sentences (e.g. 5) made from the sentence-builders. On their subsequent essay encourage them to use the sentence-builders but to choose different verbs (i.e. if they used betont, behauptet, gezeigt, illustriert, tell them these ones are now banned, which should encourage more advanced verbs like darauf hingewiesen, vermittelt.
