    Pretty confident with everything bar the comparative element. How do you teach your students to compare the use of language / compare the use of presentational devices?
    Any advice welcome

    On OCR we don't have to do this anymore, but on the old AQA spec we always taught them PEE - Connective - PEE to compare language and presentation. The key was to look for a point of connection (eg. both items using an RQ for example) and then PEE each in turn. The same was true with presentation. Do they both use colour symbolically? Do they both use images which reflect/develop the content of the item?

    So long as they write either 'likewise' or 'on the other hand' in each paragraph then it tends to be OK. This also means that they feel like they have to write about less, as their paragraphs are much longer and they have completed 6 bits of analysis in 3 paragraphs.

    Hope that helps
