Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

AQA B Lang: ENGB1 Independent Study Scrapbooks

I love this resource! This is the best resource I have reviewed yet. This will save me time; help me with my teaching and my students with their learning. L Meredith, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Want to encourage your students to tackle data independently? The ENGB1 Independent Study Scrapbook will support your students in undertaking weekly mini-research tasks. The two scrapbooks (one for Section A and one for Section B) can be given out at the beginning of the year and can be easily monitored or sections developed into whole lessons.

Students search out their own data, paste it into the booklet and respond to the prompts by performing a variety of analytical exercises on their data. Students gain a wider experience of data types and contexts, apply and practise what they have learned in class and become more independent. Guidance and examples also included.

Section A tasks include:

  1. Spontaneous speech transcription
  2. Close linguistic analysis
  3. Register analysis
  4. Engaging with the complexities of context
  5. The language of persuasion
  6. Contexts of reception
  7. Categorising texts: creating a range of groups
  8. How a categorising texts answer is rewarded
Section B tasks include:

Power
  1. Advertising
  2. Terms and conditions documents
  3. Prime Minister’s Question Time
  4. School letter
  5. Corporate communication
  6. Identifying context
Technology
  1. Representing speech in text messages
  2. Instant Messaging
  3. Radio Sports Commentary
  4. Web pages: graphology, multimodality, interactivity
  5. Social Media: lexical and semantic processes
Gender
  1. Representation
  2. Assertions of Lakoff (1975)
  3. Female Language: The research of Deborah Jones (1990)
  4. Advertising
  5. The research of Deborah Jones (1990)

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5172)
"Outstanding. Meets all the criteria very clearly and systematically. Gives students comprehensive material and clear structures to practice the various approaches and master the methodology." R Hudis, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I like the way the resource is so accessible and deceptively straightforward and yet perfectly targeted tasks would yield high quality work. Even the least diligent of students would probably be prepared to have a go! Often towards exam time students are expected to analyse texts individually when they are used to going through them as a class and they feel ill-equipped to deal with it. This scrapbooking exercise would get them used to this sort of task and help them to succeed in individual analysis early on. Im excited about how I can incorporate this guide into next years scheme of work." M Courtney-Holt, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"Original and useful. I like the fact that it is completely independent of the teacher and encourages learners to find out and notice for themselves. Using authentic materials from their own environment means that the texts chosen are relevant and contextualised.Thanks for producing something so learner-centred!" A Baiden, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"It matches the spec perfectly! I like its simple clear references to the key concepts and approaches from the syllabus. I like its simple, clear structure." R Lodge, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"I love this resource! This is the best resource I have reviewed yet. This will save me time, help me with my teaching and my students with their learning. It encourages the students to be independent but keeps all their papers in one place which you can also monitor during the year. Helps to show ongoing assessment. Provides great homework opportunities. It starts with the basics and progresses systematically. It will be an invaluable resource for revision. Well done!" L Meredith, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
