Edexcel - Unit 3 Creative Writing

Discussion in 'English' started by BlueSky1, Aug 28, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    Hopefully someone can help with this...
    It's my first year (for a fair few) when I am going back to teaching GCSE - which I'm quite excited about - and I have some questions on the spec I will be teaching.
    I've been told to start with Unit 3 and the Creative Writing task to the stimuli provided. That's fine and it's lovely to see that there is a sample scheme of work from which to start. However, I was wondering whether it is essential to stick to the 'category' you have chosen for the poetry collection? We've done Clashes and Collisions and I found the B20 riots film a little uninspiring.
    It's a year 11 class - for info.
    Thanks in advance ;)

  2. You can choose any task for the creative writing-you don't need to stick to the same 'category'.
    The link below will take you to the Edexcel English forum which confirms this:
    http://community.edexcel.com/english/f/12/t/4613.aspx
    Apologies if you already know this but ensure you choose the correct task titles for when you plan on submitting pupils' work in order for them to be valid- either June 2012 - May 2013 or June 2013 - May 2014.



     
  3. Thanks, that's great, I will follow the link.
    Hmmm - I spoke to a colleague this morning who told me her group had already done the task and the stimulus was a series of pictures. I was sure it was a film. Hopefully the forum might answer..
