5. AO2 glossary

I scanned all the mark-schemes to come up with the definitive glossary for my students (although having read The elements of eloquence I now have some more to add!)


6. AO2 booklet

AO2 is worth 15% of English Language GCSE and a staggering 42% of the Literature.  Therefore, during the revision period, it is a must!  I have created this booklet.  The booklet is divided into three sections:

Section a – subject terminology with definitions and a few exercises

Section b – nine distinct lessons to practise applying and responding to key questions.

Section c – further practice papers (mine will do one a week)
