Introduction to Data Collection and Analysis - A Level Student Scrapbooks

Want to encourage your students to tackle data independently? Structured to support the 2015 A Level AQA English Language specification, these creative Independent Study Scrapbooks will assist and stimulate your students in undertaking weekly mini research tasks.

I liked the scaffolded, modelled examples then moving to independent work and analysis...

...The range of data covered would fit both with the various textual analysis tasks required in the examinations as well as the kind of independent sourcing and analysis required for the NEA

Contains exercises for 22 separate Language topics which can be handed out at the beginning of the year and easily monitored, or developed into whole lessons. Examples and guidance included.

The aim: Students search out their own data, paste it into the booklet and respond to the prompts by performing a variety of analytical exercises. They will gain a wider experience of data types and contexts, and apply and practise what they have learned in class to enhance independent working.

What do teachers say about this resource? (6920)

A useful resource which would be suitable as an ongoing homework project throughout the academic year. It encourages and promotes independent study, which all A-level students must do outside of lessons if they are to achieve a good grade at the end of the course. The exemplar texts are very helpful for students as they provide a visual representation of what their own work should look like... The advice given to students is very useful... The scaffolded examples are very useful and clear... The resource promotes independent study and encourages students to take ownership for their learning... This resource matches the A-level English Language specification well, as all activities and content are directly relevant to the specification and examination papers and the content included is what students do need to know in this A-level course. All tasks are accessible and provide very important guidance for students.

A really thorough resource with a variety of different texts for analysis.

I did like the quantity and quality of annotation and analysis.

The detail of the material covered and the depth the resource goes into for each framework is good.

Easy to follow.
