click on image to enlarge This guide is intended to help you learn or revise for your English Language A level course. In writing it, I’ve tried to tackle the analysis of language and texts in a particularly straightforward way in the hope that it will appeal especially to you if you are feeling a bit ‘lost’ by this often complex subject, one that can so very easily, for many students, seem more different from English at GCSE than they ever imagined, and, well, none-too-easy.… [ read full article ] »

click on image to enlarge Persuasion is a fascinating and accessible novel with rather less typical Austen aspects, such as love lost and rediscovered, that provide students with an interesting and fascinating read; it provides also, if they are more widely read, an interesting counterpoint to her other, perhaps more famous, works. A feature of this teaching guide is to provide plenty of exemplification, through the close textual analysis of Persuasion, looking at aspects of language, form and… [ read full article ] »


A Level English Language - Frameworks Grammar »

Steve Campsall | Tuesday July 17, 2018

Categories: Dictionary & Grammar, Grammar, Grammar Framework, Literary & Linguistic Terms, Writing, Linguistic Analysis

If there’s one ‘framework’ that has the ability to haunt both teacher and student alike, it is surely grammar. For many teachers, putting a tentative toe into the Sea of Grammar seems all-too-easily to risk slipping on a coastal shelf and floundering to seemingly bottomless and very murky depths – not waving but drowning, maybe? This guide is the result both of a passion for grammar and several years of trying to find ways to teach it that work for students of varying… [ read full article ] »

Teaching Linguistic Theory »

Beth Kemp | Thursday July 07, 2011

Categories: Hot Entries, Writing, Linguistic Analysis, Teaching Ideas & Skills Development, Linguistics Theory & Study, Linguistic Theory, Using Theory

For teachers coming into Language as Literature specialists, teaching linguistic theory is perhaps the most alien aspect of the course.  It is often seen as the most factual aspect within English teaching at A Level, and is sometimes (frustratingly) viewed by students as the only thing they can revise, as they see it as more explicitly ‘content’ than other elements of the course. This is a collection of suggestions for different ways of introducing theoretical and research-based content… [ read full article ] »
