"The Tiredness of Rosabel" - 2017 Language exam - support Powerpoint - READING SKILLS SECTION

(3)
Many of you will be doing the 2017 Summer Exam as a mock this DEC/JAN and this Powerpoint is designed to support that process. It is based on "The Tiredness of Rosabel" AQA GCSE Language paper and deals with Section A the reading section. I have included all the obvious things in one place - mark schemes, summary of examiners report comments etc, but I've also added tips on how to improve on each question, analysis etc. I've tried to summarise examiner comments into student friendly language. Ideally the presentation should be used as you give the work back to the students and you can enhance it, obviously, with specific comments related to your own students.
