Year 11 Reading Homework Due Monday 26th February

Read the extract carefully. Then complete the questions required.

Paper 2A HUNTING – Year 11 – Q1,3 and 4

Question 1: Read the question and identify the lines carefully.  Simply shade in the circle in the box next to all of the ‘true’ statements.

Question 3: You will need to read the source carefully and identify how language has been used to describe the guerrilla.

Although it doesn’t state it in the question, you should comment on the impact of individual words and phrases, language techniques and (only if there is something meaningful to say) sentence forms.

Remember in each paragraph to: statement + quotes + inferences + effect on reader + zoom in + writer’s purpose

The mark scheme 

  • Explain the effect of language – What does it make the reader think, feel or imagine?
  • Use evidence – Short and appropriate quotations.  For each of these zoom in on the language – what are the connotations of individual words? What is the writer’s purpose?
  • Use subject terminology – Be specific.

 

Question 4: Read both sources.  

For this question, you need to refer to the whole of Source A together with the whole of Source B.

Compare how the writers convey their different ideas and perspectives of the world of working women. In your answer, you could:

  • compare their different ideas and perspectives
  • compare the methods they use to convey their ideas and perspectives
  • support your response with references to both texts.

[16 marks]

My advice?

  1. Figure out the MAIN difference (or similarity depending on the Q) between the 2 texts;
  2. Find your evidence for that main difference form both sources- what method has been used?
  3. Find smaller differences between the 2 texts;
  4. Find the evidence from both sources and the methods used.

Remember paragraph structures: 

  • Comparative statement + source A statement + quotes + inferences + effect on reader + zoom in + writer’s purpose
  • Connective + Source B statement + quotes + inferences + effect on reader + zoom in + writer’s purpose

The mark scheme

  • Compare ideas and perspectives – Use comparison discourse markers
  • Explain how methods are used – What does it make the reader think, feel or imagine?
  • Use evidence – Short and appropriate quotations.  For each of these zoom in on the language – what are the connotations of individual words?
  • Clear understanding of different perspectives – What is the writer’s purpose?
