Component Two

Exploring effects and impact


From the OCR English Language specification:

‘For the reading of fiction, learners read and respond to unseen prose fiction texts drawn from the 20th and /or 21st century. One text may be literary non-fiction. Learners develop knowledge and understanding of writers’ use of language and techniques to create meaning and effects in narrative fiction and literary non-fiction’.

  • Learners read a wide range of high-quality prose fiction texts drawn from the 20th and/or 21st century. This may include, for example, extracts from novels, short stories or literary non-fiction such as autobiography.
  • Learners engage with the detail in texts to draw inferences and recognise the possibility of different reactions.
  • They explore the impact of writers’ uses of language, structure and grammatical features on the reader.
  • Learners support their ideas about texts with carefully selected evidence.
  • They develop knowledge and understanding of linguistic and literary terminology to support their analysis of texts.

Learners should be able to:

  • comment on writers’ choices of vocabulary, form and grammatical features and how these create meaning
  • analyse and compare writers’ use of language, paying attention to detail
  • draw inferences and justify points of view by referring closely to evidence from the text
  • interpret writers’ meanings and effects in single texts and across two texts
  • identify the main themes and ideas in texts
  • use appropriate linguistic and literary terminology…
