AQA Step Up to English GOLD Theme: ‘Fight for Freedom’
This resource assesses the assessment objectives: AO1, AO2, AO3, AO5, AO6.
This is one of my highly popular resources using the theme ‘Fight for Freedom’. It is based around engaging extracts taken from the nineteenth-century text ‘Wuthering Heights’ and the twentieth-century text 'Coming to England'. Both deal with the theme of outsider status, the sense of not belonging and the reactions of others. Because Step Up to English is co-teachable with the new English GCSE this will fit in particularly well with themed work on the gothic and/or the nineteenth-century novel, if like me, you have different qualification pathways running concurrently.
Included is a full assessment and mark scheme in pdf format.
After having noticed that there is a real dearth of resources available to support the AQA Step Up To English qualifications I decided to develop my own.
I lead English across a pupil referral unit that accommodates students with both behaviour and medical needs. It is therefore important that I model and develop resources that are interesting and focus on topics that can engage this particular profile of learner.
This is one of my tried and tested resources that I have created and now use frequently in order to prepare my learners for the new AQA Step Up to English qualification at GOLD level.
