Paper 1 Q1 Paper 1 Q2 Paper 2 Q1 Paper 2 Q3 Paper 2 Q5. Note: Use of notional reading time at the start of each paper. Slide 11 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. What is new? Our main focus today will be on starting points and approaches to:

Paper 1 Q3, Q4, Q5 Paper 2 Q2, Q4. Slide 12 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 1 Question 3: AO2 (structure) You now need to think about the whole of the text. This text is from the opening of a novel. How has the writer structured the text to interest you as a reader? You could write about: what the writer focuses your attention on at the beginning how and why the writer changes the focus as the extract develops any other structural features that interest you. Slide 13 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.

A reminder about AO2 AO2 sets out an internal hierarchy of progression: explain comment (on) analyse. See mark scheme: As with P1 Q2, this rewards the skill of analysis at level 4. Slide 14 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Thinking about a ladder of skills progression: level of response 3 The mark scheme asks:

To see some accurate subject terminology (relating to structure) To see relevant exemplification (textual reference) To have a clear explanation of the effects of some of the structural features (effect and impact) All of which will lead to a demonstration of a clear understanding of structural features. Slide 15 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. What is structure? How authors internally organise a text.

As authors write a text to communicate an idea, they will use a structure that goes along with the idea. Meyer 1985 Slide 16 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. What can the structure of a text reveal? The (narrative) perspective of the text (what?) The organisation and use of time (when?) The location and setting (where?) Characters and how they are introduced (who?) The different patterns within the text, and elements of syntax or cohesion that help to create (reinforce) meaning (how?)

Slide 17 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. For our students this might translate to Whose views? Who is telling the story? What perspective is it from? What time is it? How is time ordered in it? What sort of sequence do I see? Where am I? Whats the place, location, setting? How did I find out? Who is here? What character(s) have I met and how did were they introduced? Whats it made of? What shapes, styles and patterns can I see in the sentences? Slide 18 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.

1 2 3 4 5 Paper 1 Question 4: AO4 (critical evaluation) For this question you need to focus on the second part of the text only, from line 16 to the end. A student, having read this section of the text, said: This part of the text, explaining what Hale is doing, shows how nervous and unsafe he feels. It reminds me of the first line. To what extent do you agree? In your response, you could: consider your own impressions of how Hale feels evaluate how the writer creates an unsafe atmosphere support your own opinions with quotations from the text. Slide 19 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.

Being critical and evaluative The question itself is a culmination of the footprint of skills: AO1 AO2 AO4 The key for students is to: have a sense of their own response develop the ability to ask questions independently about texts to enable them to interrogate, contest and have a response to what they read use the statement in the question to help inform their interpretation and evaluation of it. Slide 20 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Thinking Prompts: what?

Idea 1: He seems to be in a rush. He wants to get out of the bar and keep moving Idea 2: He seems compelled to do his job. Dutiful but feels vulnerable in Brighton Slide 21 What am I agreeing with? - Nervous - Unsafe Hale knew that

that they meant to murder him. Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Idea 3: Thinking Prompts: what and how? What? How? He seems to be in a rush. He wants to get out of the bar and keep moving. He seems compelled to do his

job. Dutiful but feels vulnerable in Brighton. He wants to be found quickly by a member of the public. He seems to be hiding in plain sight but seems tense and conscious of the underlying threat potentially lurking in the crowd. Slide 23 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Writer uses time references clock struck eleven and adverb hastily. Repetition of always on time, always, always. The reference to the Whitsun crowd, the hint from his inclination, the irony of the

references to challenge/challenger, the insidious description of the crowd as a twisted piece of wire. Paper 1 Question 4 mark scheme: content description See the skills and then content descriptors for successive levels of response. How the content descriptors are designed to function: not as model answers not as exhaustive or complete responses but as an indication of the type of level of response. Slide 24 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 1 Question 5

Always a choice of written prompt and visual image that is linked to the topic of the reading text in section A. Always a creative task focusing on narrative and, or descriptive writing skills: one narration and one description, or two description, or two narration. Marks for content and organisation as well as for technical accuracy. Mark scheme designed to encourage ambition. Section B will be allocated 40 marks to give an equal weighting to the reading and writing tasks.

Slide 25 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 2 Question 2: AO1 and Question 4: AO3 Paper 2 Question 2 tests AO1 skills using two texts. To be successful at the top level of the mark scheme, students need to: select a judicious range of textual detail connected to the focus of the question synthesise the detail from both texts, in order to provide a perceptive interpretation. A stepping stone to Paper 2 Question 4 which tests AO3 comparison. Students need to additionally: compare how ideas are conveyed analyse the methods used.

Slide 26 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 2 Question 2: AO1 (synthesis) You need to refer to source A and source B for this question. The things to see and do at Glastonbury Festival and Greenwich Fair are different. Use details from both sources to write a summary of the differences. Slide 27 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. The mark scheme: level of response 3 Demonstrates clear connections between texts. Selects relevant quotations from both texts to support summary. Begins to interpret both texts.

This leads to showing a clear understanding of the differences. Slide 28 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. The SQI method Text mark or list details from both texts to cover the requirement for details (in this question about different things to see and do). Then: Make clear statements about the connections (in this case differences) Quote details Make an inference from the quotation which shows understanding. Slide 29 Copyright AQA and its licensors.

Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Put them together in summary Both Glastonbury and Greenwich have a focus on outdoor fun, but whereas modern crowds can camp out at Glastonbury in a series of tents which could be chaotic because some lose their moorings and go there to see bands like Coldplay and The Killers, at Greenwich the crowd went for treats to eat like spice nuts and pennyworths of pickled salmon. This suggests people have more leisure time to spend at Glastonbury than the crowd at Greenwich who seem to be enjoying a rare day out Slide 32 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 2 Question 4: AO3 (comparison) For this question you need to refer to the whole of source A together with the whole of source B. Compare how the writers have conveyed their different views and experiences of the festival and fair they describe. In your answer, you could:

compare their different experiences compare the methods they use to convey those experiences support your ideas with quotations from both texts. Slide 33 Copyright AQA and its licensors.

Read, understand and respond to texts This AO focuses on two areas of response: Students should be able to: The students response to the text the extent to which they understand the text and its meaning(s) to them as reader 40% maintain a critical style and develop an informed personal response The students response to the task use textual references, including the extent to which they produce quotations, to support and illustrate a coherent response, supported

interpretations with references to the text Slide 38 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Assessment objective 2 (AO2) AO2 40% Slide 39 GCSE English Literature Assessment objective What this means Analyse the language, form and structure used by a writer to create meanings and effects, using relevant subject terminology where

appropriate This AO focuses on writers craft: how the writer has communicated meanings to the reader. Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Ideally students will use subject terminology as a shorthand to scaffold their analysis of craft. Assessment objective 3 (AO3) AO3 15% GCSE English Literature Assessment objective What this means Show understanding of the

relationships between texts and the contexts in which they were written AO3 is the understanding of the relationship between the ideas in the text and the contexts of the text, such as: the context in which the text was written the context within which the text is set (location / social structures and features / cultural contexts / periods in time) literary contexts such as genres the contexts in which texts are engaged with by different audiences.

Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Comparison

In each specification as a whole, 20-25% of the marks should require candidates to show the abilities described in AO1, AO2 and AO3 through tasks which require them to make comparisons across texts. Slide 42 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. AO3 is the understanding of the relationship between the ideas in the text and the contexts of the text. The range of contexts and relationships that is most relevant as part of AO3 will depend on the text, the author and the task. In teaching and assessing AO3, teachers and students can consider context in a flexible way, dependent on the text itself and whichever contexts are the most relevant for that particular text. These contexts may relate to the relationship between the text and the context in which it was written. However, these contexts may also relate to the context within which the text is set: location, social structures and features, cultural contexts, and periods in time. Context, where relevant, may also apply to literary contexts such as genres. It may also apply to the contexts in which texts are engaged with by different audiences.

Slide 43 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Context in questions Starting with this speech, explain how far you think Shakespeare presents Macbeth as a hero.

GCSE English Language papers: what are the main ideas, themes or character that is being introduced, or developed? how do particular choices of words, phrases, or lines within the extract affect the reader? why is the writer seeking to have this effect at this particular point in the play or novel? what other parts, or key pivotal moments of the text does it suggest? when I read this, what do I think is important? How does it add to, reinforce or change how I think about the character, relationships, themes or ideas that I have been studying? Slide 48 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. One way of approaching an extract

Read the following extract from Act 3 Scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet and then answer the question that follows. At this point in the play Juliet is waiting for the Nurse to come back from meeting Romeo. Starting with this speech, explore how Shakespeare uses language to present attitudes towards love in Romeo and Juliet. Write about: what Juliet says about love in this speech how Shakespeare uses language to present attitudes to love in the play as a whole. Slide 49 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Romeo and Juliet extract JULIET Come, night; come, Romeo; come, thou day in night; For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night Whiter than new snow on a raven's back.

Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow'd night, Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night And pay no worship to the garish sun. O, I have bought the mansion of a love, But not possess'd it, and, though I am sold, Not yet enjoy'd: so tedious is this day As is the night before some festival To an impatient child that hath new robes And may not wear them. O, here comes my nurse, And she brings news; and every tongue that speaks But Romeo's name speaks heavenly eloquence. Slide 50 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.

Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. An Inspector Calls sample responses Priestley shows lots of differences between the older and younger generations in An Inspector Calls. At the start of the play Mr Birling spends a lot of time saying what he thinks and giving advice. He says: there is a lot of silly talk about these days about the war. He also says that weve passed the worst of it. This shows that he isnt right because the war happened, so Priestley is showing that Mr Birling isnt going to be right about anything. He then gives another long speech to Eric and Gerald. He says; youve a lot to learn yet. This makes him sound as if he thinks hes better than Eric and Gerald. He also says that he is a hard-headed man of business. Then he says; a man has to mind his own business and look after himself and his own. His famous quote is about the Titanic where he says unsinkable, absolutely unsinkable. At the end of the play he says the whole storys just a lot of moonshine. He also says the famous younger generation who know it all. And they cant even take a joke. Mrs Birling is the same because she tries to say that Eric and Sheila are just tired at the end of the play as if they are just children. Theyre over-tired. Sheila and Eric are different because they learn things from the Inspector. Eric learns because he says we helped to kill her and Sheila says I suppose were all nice people now. Slide 54

Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. An Inspector Calls sample responses In An Inspector Calls, Priestley uses the contrast between the younger and older generations to explore his ideas about society and responsibility. As the play progresses, the contrast gets more extreme. At the start of the play, Eric is shown to be irresponsible through the presentation of him as a drinker. Sheila is getting engaged and is shown to be very excited about her engagement ring, although Priestley uses stage directions to hint that there is a more serious side to her half serious, half playful. Because of what we later find out about Gerald and his similarity to Mr Birling, this direction shows that Sheila is quite wise and has good instincts. On the other hand Mr Birling is shown to have very bad instincts in Act One. He keeps telling the youngsters to listen to him, as if he is drawing attention to the wisdom of his years and experience. This repetition forces the audience to pay attention to the differences between the older and younger generations, as if Priestley is indicating that this is an important idea in the play. This is then highlighted even further with Mr Birlings confident statements about the Titanic and the War: unsinkable, absolutely unsinkable and The Germans dont want war. These statements in particular allow Priestley to demonstrate the arrogance of people like Birling who think they know it all but are completely wrong. The language Birling uses is blunt and to the point, as if there is no room for argument in what he thinks. However, Priestley is using irony here to show how wrong he is and therefore not to be trusted, in contrast with Sheila who has very good instincts.

Paper 2 Section B: comparison of studied poems To help, we: list the titles of poems in each cluster on the exam paper as a key reminder print the poem named in the question on the exam paper. Students need to: know their chosen cluster of poems holistically be able to make connections and comparisons between the poems and the theme of the cluster. Students will need help to: use the named poem for close AO2 references in particular focus on the named poem printed for them in the question

paper as a starting point consider how best to reference their own choice of poem for the purpose of comparison. Slide 57 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Activity 1. Look at this question from the first set of specimen papers: Compare the ways poets present ideas about power in Ozymandias and in one other poem from Power and conflict. 2. How is this student making effective references to the poems? See response in your pack. 3. Now look briefly at the questions in the second set of specimen papers: How are they establishing a similar degree of support for students to address AO1 and AO2? Slide 58 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Activity Both Ozymandias and My Last Duchess show the effects of power and how it corrupts. Shelley

describes Ozymandias sneer of cold command as if to suggest that he is a cruel and heartless leader, only concerned with his own power and the immortality it will bring. The Duke in My Last Duchess is similarly concerned with his own power and status . Although the monologue is supposed to replicate a conversation, there is no opportunity for his listener to speak Browning writes the monologue to show the Dukes self-obsession and that he is not interested in anyones views other than his own. Ozymandias might have had cold command of his lands, just like the Duke gave commands. Both poets are concerned with the effects of power and how in the wrong hands it corrupts. The Duke is shown to be misguided as Browning uses imagery to hint at the Duchess kindness and gentle spirit (white pony) to prove that she is innocent and has been killed for nothing. Ozymandias is shown to also be cruel: sneer of cold command however he has been left with nothing: the lone and level sands stretch far away. It could be argued that the Duke has also been left with nothing: he has a statue of Neptune which is made of cold bronze. He doesnt realise this himself however, as he cares nothing for human relationships and is far more concerned, like Ozymandias, with his pride and reputation. Ultimately both leaders are shown by the poets to be corrupt. Both poets feel that power in the wrong hands has devastating consequences on the innocent. However, although both poets show that this corruption is punished in the end, perhaps it is the Duke who is shown more clearly to be the true despot as Browning uses the dramatic monologue to show first hand how completely self absorbed he is.

Paper 2 Section C: comparison of unseen poetry Students do really well, and seem to enjoy, responding to unseen poems. The response to unseen is the final task. In this way, it gives students the opportunity to demonstrate and use the skills they have learned throughout the course in a synoptic way. Comparison of unseen texts is a requirement of the qualification. However, this element of the qualification is worth 8 marks out of a total of 168. As students respond to the first unseen poem, they are mentally gathering ideas to use in the final 8 mark task. Both poems will have very clear links and connections in terms of ideas. The final 8 mark task will also make these main links and connections explicit. Slide 60 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 2 Section C: comparison of unseen poetry How to Leave the World that Worships Should Let faxes butter-curl on dusty shelves. Let junkmail build its castles in the hush of other peoples halls.

the roads where distant drivers queue like sheep. Let e-mails fly like panicked, tiny birds. Let phones, unanswered, ring themselves to sleep. Above, the sky unrolls its telegram, immense and wordless, simply understood: youve made your mark like birdtracks in the sand now make the air in your lungs your livelihood. See how each wave arrives at last to heave itself upon the beach and vanish. Breathe. Ros Barber Slide 61 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.

Paper 2 Section C: comparison of unseen poetry The Rich Eat Three Full Meals The rich eat three full meals, the poor two small bowls But peace is what matters. Thirsty, I drink sweet plum tea; Warm, I lie in the shade, in the breeze; My paintings are mountains and rivers all around me, My damask*, embroidered, the grass.

Paper 2 Section C: comparison of unseen poetry 27.2 In both The Rich Eat Three Full Meals and How to Leave the World that Worships Should, the speakers describe attitudes towards the world around us. What are the similarities and/or differences between the ways the poets present these attitudes?

Slide 64 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Forming a comparative response Both Both However Slide 65 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved. Paper 2 Section C top level three response Both speakers are talking about how it is important to enjoy life and see the beauty of the natural world. In The Rich the poet uses positive images to show the beauty of the world for example my paintings are mountains and rivers which gives the sense that he sees the world as a work of art and something precious to be admired. In How to, the poet also uses positive imagery although she uses them to show the power and size of the natural world such as immense and wordless, as if the natural world is bigger and much more important than the human world. This suggests that Barber sees the natural world as something bigger that we cant own, but the poet in The Rich

seems to suggest something different through his images, as if the natural world belongs to humans. This is also suggested by the ways both poets position the idea of peace. In The Rich it is on the second line but Barber puts the word breathe right at the end of the poem. Both suggest that it is the main point of their poem however, because in The Rich it is a definite statement: peace is what matters and in How To it is a direct instruction in a single word sentence at the end of the poem. However, although both poems are about similar ideas, How to seems more direct and as if it matters more. She uses second person and lots of instructions to the reader in the second verse, whereas The Rich just describes his own way of looking at the world. This makes How to seem more powerful and direct as if it is very important that we do as she says. Slide 66 Copyright AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved.
