1 Unit 1 : English Language Section A : 15 mins reading 1 hr to answer questions Section B: 25 mins – shorter writing task 35 mins – Longer writing Task
2 Section A: Foundation Tier 1 mark = 1 ½ minutes 1a. Information Retrieval (4) 1b. Inference (Reading below the surface) (4) 2. Inference (8) 3. Language Analysis (12) 4. Compare presentational devices (12)
3 Unit 1. Section A 15 minutes reading: 5 minutes per text For Source 1 read for a WHAT question so SUMMARISE – DO NOT underline language devicesFor Source 2 read for a WHAT question so SUMMARISE - DO NOT underline language devicesFor Source 3 - HOW question - underline language devices as you read– at least 6.
4 Retrieval 4 marks 6 minutes Source 1 List of 4 quotations or details Question 1aRetrieval4 marks6 minutesSource 1List of 4 quotations or details
5 Question 1b Inference 4 Marks 6 minutes Source 1 EPE: When the writer says “….” this shows the reader that… because…2/3 EPEs neededUSE YOUR OWN WORDS to explain the quotation
6 Question 2 Retrieval and Inference 8 Marks 12 minutes Source 2 EPE: When the writer says “….” this shows the reader that… because…4/5 EPEs neededUSE YOUR OWN WORDS to explain the quotation
7 Example question: 2. What insights are you given into the fashion Industry in source 2? (8) Use EPE x4 Evidence Point Explanation = Do not use words from the article. Use your own words.
8 Question 3 Language 12 marks 18 minutes Source 3 Note = if there are 2 purposes: e.g. inform and persuadeEPE: When the writer says “….” this makes the reader feel that… because… REMEMBER TO name the language device e.g. metaphor; explain what it does [B2] e.g. puts an image in the reader’s mind; refer back to the text and the writer’s purpose [B3] e.g. so that we understand how language supports purpose EPEE 4/5 times [Try to explore more than one feature of language)Evaluate at the end
9 Example: 3. How does the writer use language to inform and persuade Use EPEE X 4 OR 5 (In the explanation comment on 2 language features) Evidence Point Explanation – Name and explain effect of 2 devices Evaluation
10 Question 4 E: In my opinion BOTH writers are successful in… Presentation18 minutes; 12 Marks;2 texts; 3 TEPEDEPEEsT:BOTH writers use…. [e.g. images] to persuade/inform us.E: In source 1 the writer uses…P:this makes the reader think/feel…E:because [CONTENT, SHAPE, COLOUR, POSITION, SIZE] – name it, explain [B2] take it back to the text and the writer’s purpose [B3].D: Similarly/howeverE: In source 2 the writer uses…P: this makes the reader think/feel…E: because [CONTENT, SHAPE, COLOUR, POSITION, SIZE] – name it, explain [B2] take it back to the text and the writer’s purpose [B3].E: In my opinion BOTH writers are successful in…
11 Example: 4. Compare the use of presentational devices in source 3 and one other source of your choice. (12)Use TEPEDEPEE Topic sentence EPE Text 1 Discourse marker to compare – similarly, however EPE Text 2 Evaluate both – why are their similarities or difference? Link to purpose
12 Section B(Same for both tiers) Q5. 25 mins – shorter writing task (Explain/Describe/Inform) Q6. 35 mins – Longer writing Task(Argue or Persuade) ALWAYS COMPLETE THE LONGER WRITING TASK BEFORE THE SHORTER WRITING TASK.
13 Longer Writing Task 35mins 5 paragraph minimum required on Persuade OR Argue. There will be one question only – there is no choice. Time allocation: 5 mins – plan 5 mins to write each paragraph (5x5 = 25mins) 5 mins – to check through writing This question will be either persuade or argue: YOU MUST KNOW BOTH WRITING TO ARGUE AND PERSUADE STRUCTURES. The structure for Persuade - SEE TEMPLATE. You should aim for 5 paragraphs. This structure simply shows you how to order points and suggests language devices. For the Argue Structure - SEE TEMPLATE .You should aim for 5 paragraphs. This structure explains how ideas should be organized. It is a quick way to plan and write within 35mins.
14 Shorter Writing Task 25mins Be aware that that there will be 2 purposes. They will come from the Describe/inform/explain triplet but may not always be the case. One may not be named but will still be there. You must address both purposes. Example - Descibe a holiday and encourage a friend to come with you = Two purposes : describe and persuade. 4 paragraph minimum. If time allows could aim for 5 – or this could be a 1 or 2 sentence paragraph to conclude. Time allocation: 4 mins - plan 4 mins to write each paragraph (4x4 = 16mins) 3 mins – to check through writing
