The resources contained here are designed for students studying GCSE English (focused on the AQA Specification). The resources are designed specifically for students of Lower Ability as well as those with certain specific Special Educational Needs. The exam boards’ only differentiation concession is to create a Higher and Foundation Tier paper each series, they do not specifically cater to students who struggle to access the basics in English – so we face a dilemma.

Do we stick to teaching only the basics, and then wonder why our lower ability students fail in their exams? Or do we teach them more specifically the vocabulary they need to know and how to use it effectively?

The PowerPoints in this Unit, ‘Informative Account Writing’ and ‘Informative Account Writing – Identifying Assessment Objectives’, are designed to enable students with visual stress and dyslexia to read the information more easily, and the information contained in the guide should be taught in conjunction with discussions and example creation.
