This seller donates to charity. WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER. For NQT’s and anyone who wants to make their marking totally easy, focused, productive and user- friendly for both themselves and their students. Say goodbye to arduous pointless marking. This resource contains 15 very detailed breakdowns of the requirements at each level for EACH of the individual assessment objectives for both paper 1 and paper 2 of the 2016 AQA GCSE English Language course. These have been carefully designed so that you can just highlight students’ levels rather than laboriously annotate work thereby cutting down on both marking time, and stress. The marking sheets can also be used for very productive self or peer assessment by students. I have had excellent feedback from those who have used these resources thus far.

Contents: complete separate student- friendly marking sheets for each learning objective; PAPER 1 (Writer’s viewpoints and perspectives) AO1 Identify and interpret AO2 Explain and analyse language and structure AO3 Comparing texts AO4 Evaluate texts critically There is also a separate document just for structure. PAPER 2 (Explorations in creative reading and writing) AO1 Summarising AO2 Language Analysis AO3 Comparing Two texts AO5 Writing: content and organisation AO6 Writing: technical accuracy Please do browse my other resources and contact me directly with any queries. This will also help you break down your planning especially if you are an NQT- nothing wrong with taking an assessment objective at a time.

The focus is on analysing an advertising campaign. - Students will study a range of engaging media texts (provided) -Students will be able to learn, understand and apply some basic theories of audience. -Students will study an advertising campaign and be able to analyse texts using the key concepts. - Students will enjoy discussion and debate about a topical issue.

Suitable for AS students and able GCSE students. Also, excellent for revision of analysing media texts. So, what's the subject? I decided to capitalize on one of the most interesting events of modern times- the unlikely election of a certain Donald Trump to enthuse my media students. One of Trump's strengths during a protracted promotional campaign leading up to the election was an EXCELLENT media team who produced a number of exceedingly clever media texts to present Trump as the hero waiting in the wings to save the nation! Obviously, Trump is a contentious issue and a few students got quite sniffy initially but the focus is on the SUCCESS OF THIS MEDIA CAMPAIGN not Trump himself and once made clear, the students really enjoyed the lessons on this. Great debates ensued among my students- although many dislike Trump it is without question that the American media were against him and you need to start from this perspective. It is so interesting. There is a fun video which sums up (1) the media bias (2) how Trump crept into power and (3) how unexpected the victory was considering he began as a total joke at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQgq_R13V3s shorter version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qzl8xjkgXCo The unit also involves analysing Hillary Clinton's ads as a basis for comparison.
