AQA Revision Guides: Understanding and Producing Non-fiction

It encourages good study practice and independent learning while covering key points, skills and knowledge, helping students feel confident and prepared.

D Massey, English tutor & Independent Reviewer

A5 revision guides to help students revise for Section A & B of the AQA English Language Unit 1 exam. The guides explain useful skills needed for the exam/language analysis, as well as giving up to 25 varied revision ideas for perfect exam preparation!

Both the foundation and higher guides have been developed so that you can choose the most appropriate for your students’ needs, particularly in mixed-ability classes, without the worry that they are revising in different ways. The same topics are covered, but in appropriate and accessible ways for both tiers.

Most importantly, answers are included so that students can take complete ownership of their revision and monitor their own progress.


What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4998)
"The resource was very clear and the activities well linked to the exam and easy for the students to follow." P Ault, English teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I was impressed by the comprehensive nature of the resource. I especially liked the way in which the revision activities were graduated through the resource so that there was a sense of progression." C Webb, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This is nicely presented and has a well-paced approach to learning. It is mapped out well and covers all required areas, some from different angles to accommodate different styles of learning. Certainly worth having amongst your resources. I love the fact that this is heavily skills-based and allows the development of these skills through unitised study. The example answers and references to external resources allow students to see models and build on their own revision through some practical approaches. Great stuff."E Evans English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I thought it was an excellent resource for the Foundation GCSE student, particularly those aiming to pass at or upgrade to a C grade. It is very user friendly, clear and concise. The layout is attractive and it is easy to find what you require. It encourages good study practice and independent learning while covering key points, skills and knowledge, helping students feel confident and prepared." D Massey, English tutor and ind. reviewer
"Very accessible. I liked it a lot. It is clearly written and addresses the student personally which promotes ownership. I particularly like the fact that it is made up in booklet style allowing for a project feel to the revision tasks." J Orford, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"On the whole I think this is a useful resource for teachers to use for revision of learning already completed in class . It would also be useful for students to access independently since the revision tasks are clearly directed at them. I like that the tasks are clear and well presented. It could be useful for specific skills practice, homework exercises to consolidate classroom learning or for a cover lessons." W Bastock, English Tutor and Ind. Reviewer
"Very strong publication that would support not only students but NQT and supply teachers who are new to the AQA specification. It covers all aspects of the paper and has a range of activities that would support students in preparing for the exam. It would also serve well as a homework booklet for GCSE students to work through." S Mullen, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"I thought it was a very accessible and user-friendly resource with useful activities. It encourages independence which I don't see so much in resources, even though it's a really important skill. It prepares learners for the exam but it is designed in such a way that I would be happy to use this is a non-exam class. The skills are generally relevant and practical." A Baiden, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
