This resource shows students a point made at different levels of the mark scheme. This is useful to get the students annotating for what both responses have done well with reference to the AQA mark schemes. The important thing is to fully understand what the ‘student’ has done to gain a level 6 response and how to replicate this in their own writing. This is really useful for those with the highest forecast grades.

AQA Academic Writing - Lord of the Flies, An Inspector Calls

This resource models how to upgrade basic points to a more academic style/tone. The model uses Lord of the Flies.

They should then apply what they find to upgrading the ‘An Inspector Calls’ paragraph at the bottom. Encourage crafting/re-drafting.
