Introducing an Essay

  • This guide has been written with the CIE English Unit 0522 in mind, but it could be equally useful to introduce and practice argumentative writing skills for WJEC, OCR, AQA and Edexcel GCSE and iGCSE.

Identifying Persuasive Techniques and Analysing Persuasive Texts

Introduction

The following lesson plan and resources are ideal for a one-off GCSE preparation lesson. The idea is to examine persuasive techniques and then answer a GCSE examination-style question on two persuasive texts, requiring students to compare the texts in terms of the audience and point of view of the writer.

  • Spread the tasks out over two or three lessons, possibly adding an evaluation task to see how...

Spoken Language Study at GCSE

Some advice from an A Level English Language specialist

Background

This SOW was initially used as a GCSE English Study of Spoken English Controlled Assessment task (CAT) with a set of able students. It worked very well in focusing them on an area of language that was of interest to them, encouraged them to undertake an in depth study of an area of spoken language and become familiar with the necessary terminology with which to analyse the data and reflect on their own experience of language in the classroom. Having the live clips also enabled them to annotate their own...
