Language and Power
with a special focus on Race, Racism and Genocide
Written for AQA B ENGB1

  1. Comprehensive yet accessible notes give students the knowledge they need
  2. Textual analysis exercises and group thinking tasks mean students engage with the topic and can apply what they have learnt with confidence
  3. Relevant case studies throughout put theoretical ideas into context

Covers lexis, morphology, euphemism, semantics and pragmatics, with sections on:
• Race/Racist • Beliefs/Racism • Euphemism • The Language of the Holocaust • Metaphor • The Wannsee Conference.

'An excellent resource. Enhanced learning is achieved by the easy-to-read explanation of each element; giving valuable examples and encouraging expansion of those facts.'
- J Churchill, English Language Teacher, Independent Reviewer

'I particularly liked the investigative element of the activities in this resource. Students are required to think, find out, share previous learning and use previous knowledge to facilitate new learning. Perfect.'
- P Lovelock, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4542)
'An excellent resource. I particularly like the focus on race/genocide, as these are areas often avoided by people who are worried about how to teach them sensitively. I think this would really stretch the more able pupils and is good because of its cross-curricular/wider social links. 'C McDonough, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'An excellent resource which provides students with ample opportunity to investigate how language is used to gain and wield power. While case studies are used as examples, there is still plenty of scope for students to use other or more recent examples for coursework options. I particularly liked the investigative element of the activities in this resource. Students are required to think, find out, share previous learning and use previous knowledge to facilitate knew learning Perfect. The metaphor analysis in unit 3 is very interesting and I think it will help students understand the use of metaphor as well as clarifying the use of euphemism (in many ways euphemism is metaphor) and perhaps help them to use it in their own writing.The case studies help students realise that this is real and once they understand that, they will be able to find many, many examples in use everyday. Even in school situations, bullies use language to gain power and school reports are filled with euphemisms. This is something that students are not only learning but can have experience of or be affected by - they will be able to relate to the use of language, recognise it in use and so be able to discuss and comment on it with knowledge and understanding.I found this resource refreshing in that there is an expectation that students have to think for themselves and take risks in suggesting possibilities and producing informed opinions.'P Lovelock, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'An excellent resource. Enhanced learning is achieved by the easy-to-read explanation of each element; giving valuable examples and encouraging expansion of those facts. Educational value is as above, with the added link to present day, where examples are given throughout of how metaphors are everywhere but can change according to the time-frame or context.'J Churchill, English Language Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Clear, concise and student-centric. A range of tasks and data to discuss and analyse, with a range of tasks that promote group and individual learning. I particularly liked the focus on group work - the tasks are not wordy and the resources are accessible. As we know, students benefit more from working together than from a 'chalk and talk' approach. It is nice to see a resource that is clean, straightforward, and most importantly teacher and student-friendly.'A Barnett, English Examiner & Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Stimulating subject matter which is ideal for exploring language and power. Students have often studied Nazism at GCSE and enjoy airing their knowledge. The subject matter illustrates the idea of language and power perfectly. Brings the link between language and power to life. It can seem merely theoretical to some students at first'M Courtney-Holt, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'I liked the engaging narrative style of the handouts. Difficult concepts were explained clearly, sensitively and concisely. The tasks that were included were relevant and at the right level for A Level work.'J Whitbread, English Language Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'An interesting approach to Language & Power. The case studies are interesting, relevant and likely to be both engaging for the students and a good way to help them see issues such as racism in language. Students could use this material to explore the concept of representation and race particularly as part of their preparation, or students already showing an interest in working on race could be given this pack to work on independently.'B Kemp, English HoD & Examiner, Independent Reviewer
