AQA A Level Crime - Unseen Extracts - 26 documents in total ! Even More Unseen Crime Extracts to Analyse! This is the third in my series of Unseen Crime extracts, to support the Crime paper on the AQA A Level English Literature examination. They follow a similar format to the previous two. There are 10 extracts, covering a range of Crime sub genres: Golden Age/Hard Boiled/Psychological thriller/Historical Crime/Courtroom crime drama etc. Each extract is in word individually for students to work on, plus they are gathered together into a 22 page scanned student booklet. All ten extracts (with teacher notes for each one) are also individually available in Word and are also annotated and collected into a scanned 32 page teacher booklet, which also has a page of teacher notes at the back of each extract to help teach each one and to prompt discussion. I have also added some extra Unseen resources to enhance the package: Ways into Unseen Analysis Posters, a very detailed PowerPoint lesson looking at the Susan Hill Unseen example paper, a presentation on TYPES of Crime fiction, and a PowerPoint with ideas on how to approach the Unseen element. This package should provide some last minute practice before the exams.
