AQA Language Paper 1 Section A Full SoW


This is a full scheme of work for the AQA 8700 Language GCSE. This scheme of work focuses on Section A of Paper 1, however there is also the option to purchase the scheme of work for the entire paper or for just Section B. This is a very thorough and detailed set of lessons that introduces and teaches all of the skills required to perform well in the exam. The scheme of work should last between 5-6 weeks depending on your class. The lessons follow a step-by-step structure and build up the skills needed through lots of practice and a range of different activities. The scheme of work focuses on both generic analysis and evaluation tasks as well as tasks that replicate the questions in the exam. Two different sources are used in this scheme of work so that pupils can practice their analysis and evaluation skills on multiple texts. Each question is deconstructed and broken down so pupils understand what they are required to do, how to plan and how to write up a successful answer. There is also a mock paper included in this bundle so pupils can then test their skills at the end of the unit. You can choose to let pupils sit this mock in timed conditions or present it as a ‘run through mock’ which is guided by the teacher, instructions for the latter are included in the scheme of work. As the lessons work through questions that replicate those in the exam, in effect, pupils will work through two full Section A examples once they have finished the entire unit including the mock. There are also several worksheets included in the bundle which scaffold and support pupils as they learn. There are also, checklists, peer assessment sheets and end of unit review sheets included in the bundle which are useful when conducting practice questions in the classroom or as revision. The lessons cover a range of activities such as pair work, group work, verbal feedback, group analysis, presentations, carousels and various types of peer assessment. Several slides include teacher notes at the bottom in order to give extra information or direction.
