A 619-word model A-level essay response to the question "Welche Aspekte der Arbeit des von Ihnen gewählten Regisseurs finden Sie besonders interessant? Erklären Sie warum." which can be used for preparation for either the legacy or new specification writing paper, given the fact that it is full of useful vocabulary, idioms and ideas. There are some tasks for pupils to work through, including identifying the point, evidence and analysis sections of the main body to highlight the need for clear structure, translating expressions in bold in essay into English, a comprehensive vocabulary list from essay which can be set as homework, and a Point-Evidence-Analysis grid for pupils to complete. At our centre, we encourage pupils to plan the essay in brief English phrases as it is much quicker than in the target language, and then carefully work ideas into the target language when completing the essay itself. The grid could be used in two ways, either by using the model essay as a reading comprehension and getting pupils to note PEE in English, or getting them to discuss and note down their own PEE plan. This could then be presented to class and constructive feedback given or it could lead to further discussion of ideas among peers.
