GCSE Article Writing Task

GCSE Article Writing Task

This lesson is based on the regular Guardian feature 'A Letter to...'. I have found that it generates some very emotive and well-written pieces, even from the slightly more disengaged. Students read an example, highlighting the areas of strength, before composing a list of their own success criteria. The writing task is to produce their own 'letter they always wanted to write' with an opportunity for peer assessment later. The peer assessment is based broadly on the mark scheme for AQA 8700/2 Question 5, but can be adapted for different boards.
