AQA GCSE Written Paper Unit 1 Section A

Discussion in 'Drama and performing arts' started by AlliFoz, Mar 7, 2011.

  1. I have recently returned after maternity leave to a completely un-prepared and demotivated group of year 11 pupils. I have not taught the new GCSE spec until my return but I am hoping that I can kill two birds with one stone. Am I able to write about the scripted piece (Acting-Option 2) that the pupils are showing to the moderator for Unit 1 Section A? The pupils are working on 'My Mother Said I never should' for their moderator assessment and I am hoping that they can talk about this for Section A also as it would really help me with the time I have available.
    I am aware that they need to talk about a completely different play that they have studied and workshopped in more detail for Unit 1 Section B.

    Advice needed please.
  2. They can write about any practical work for Section A. So the most recent moderated one is ideal. Section B is quite a toughy if June 2010 is anything to go by. I will most probably encourage my students to do A and C.

    Hope that helps.

    Hope the moderation goes well.
  3. I agree do section A on the play and then section C for a theatre visit. If they haven't already gone to see something I have a really good resource I picked up on a course for the students to complete when viewing a picee of live theatre.
  4. Thank you for the advice. My HOD is doing section B with them so I only have to cover section A.
  5. Hello,
    Saw the above, I'd really apppreciate the review resource. I am however concerned about GCSE students being disallowed from taking notes into the exam
    Many Thanks
