CIE English Language Reading 0627 | Unseen Poetry Anthology

Richard Gent | Thursday May 10, 2018

Categories:

Some general tips:

  • The assessment of reading skills in this paper is based entirely on unseen texts. Consequently whenever possible students should practice analysing texts as ‘unseens’ as the norm in their study of both English Language and English Literature
  • Try to harness good reading skills from Key Stage 3 onwards by introducing students to a range of reading texts from the 19th to 21st centuries across a range of genres and increasing the challenge of these texts up into Key Stage 4
  • As 19th Century texts are prominent in this unit your students should build up a clear understanding of the 19th century context, the sort of society it was and the styles of language used. This should cover both non- fiction and fiction texts
  • There is clear crossover here with English Literature where the literary heritage texts studied in both prose and poetry can be taught alongside these texts as integrated exercises

Assessment and Mark Schemes

How to use

  • At Edusites we think carefully about how teachers use our resources. These assessments have been written by experts and are designed to suit your needs both for this academic year and for future use.

Taking the exams

  • You have a choice of doing the whole paper as a mock or separating the questions for classroom use. We are aware that most schools assess one section of a paper at a time and printing the whole paper is unnecessary. Because of this you are able to click on the exam paper and cut the text off the site and paste it onto a word document or PowerPoint. The look of the exam question is not affected by your software.
  • At the end of the resource you will find the full exam paper which is downloadable and printable. This is a copyrighted document and as such must not be shared with any other institution.

Marking and grading these exams

  • The resources are based around your marking being a collaborative effort with your students and the online slides facilitate this.
  • Each question has a slide show which takes you and your students through the various levels along with indicative content.
  • Of course you can still mark these exam papers using the slides on your own but we wanted to give you the opportunity to run a feedback class which enabled students to see where they could improve their responses.
