Scottish context

Look over your notes and your revision poster/booklet to help you to memorise key quotations, techniques and themes for Morgan’s poems

BBC bitesize is also very useful:

Scottish poetry library is also very good:

Reading for Understanding, Analysis and Evaluation

Complete the past papers that are available on the SQA website under timed conditions

http://www.sqa.org.uk/pastpapers/findpastpaper.htm?subject=English&level=N5

 

You should also read and make notes on quality comment and opinion pieces of journalism. Use these three prompts to help you:

  1. Summarise the passage in your own words. Pay particular attention to understanding and explaining key ideas
  2. Identify at least three effective uses of language: identify the technique, quote and explain the impact
  3. Write a response to the article. How successful was the writer in communicating their point of view?

Critical Essay
