Panoramic – describe the scene, broadly. Introduce the time and setting.

Zoom – focus your lens in on your character/s, describe them in detail.

Single line – add one line of dialogue from your character/s.

Shift – describe the incident that is taking place in the scene, talk the reader through the senses.

Shift – how does the incident reach a climax point? How does the atmosphere/mood change?

Panoramic – zoom out to look at the scene as a whole, how has it changed given the new information?

REMINDER

  • a range of linguistic devices
  • a range of punctuation
  • ambitious vocabulary
  • varied structural features.

Plan before you write. Consider what you need to include (specifically) and where you will include it; create a tick list.

The incident does not have to be anything major – it can be an ordinary day, as long as it is convincing and compelling.

Year 9 and 10 Reading Homework – due Monday 26th February

Read the extract carefully. Then complete the questions required.

Year 10 Reading HW Hunting Q1 and 3

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?
  • Use subject terminology – Be specific.
