AQA GCSE English Literature Power and Conflict Poetry – Exam Preparation - A Comparative Answer on Percy Bysshe Shelley's 'Ozymandias' and Wilfred Owen's 'Exposure'.
This presentation is designed to help you prepare your class to answer a GCSE English Literature question on AQA Power and Conflict Poetry. It is NOT intended to teach students the poems themselves – students should already be familiar with the two poems used within. It is designed for you to use later in the school year when the poetry has been fully covered and the students need to learn how to use this knowledge to write the best possible exam answers.
The presentation is entitled ' Answering AQA Power and Conflict Poetry Questions': this 36-slide Powerpoint presentation has been carefully designed and created to help you guide your class through each part of the essay writing process. It examines each of the following elements: the AOs and the Mark Scheme, exam timing and weighting, essay structure, how to write an introduction, using ‘rough notes’ for planning, contents of the main body and how to write a conclusion. Most importantly, it features many extracts from a sample exam answer which are annotated to show the importance of using subject terminology, precise and judicious quotes and comparative links.
It is also available in my shop as part of a resource pack which contains printable worksheets.
