Transcripts for analysis

Discussion in 'English' started by suzannemantz, Oct 16, 2007.

  1. Is there anywhere that I can get copies (downloaded or paper) of transcripts? They don't have to be about anything in particular.

    I am doing Unit 5 of the AQA Lang/Lit syllabus, where students have to compare a written conversation to a transcript of a spoken one.

    However, all I can find so far is the copies of about 3 transcripts on teachit.co.uk

    Is there a website that has just a load of transcripts on? I am finding hard to analyse spoken words when we have no resources! We have taken to making and transcribing our own, but it takes so long!

    Thanks,

    Suzanne

  3. Not sure if there are any websites devoted to transcripts! They can be hard to get hold of.
    Some suggestions:

    Past Unit 5 (and 6) papers (you could always cut the transcripts down a bit if necessary)

    English Lang & Lit textbooks- usually have short examples in them

    Get the students to record or write down examples of their own conversations (transforming them into narratives can be a useful exercise)

    Get a passage from a novel and just give them the dialogue - see what they make of it

    See if you or any of your colleagues can get onto a 'Teaching the spoken word' course as they usually give out transcripts

    Use the ones from the Unit 1 anthology

    Look on the internet for interview transcripts e.g. with celebrities - may be able to pair these with something

    um....any help?:)

  10. I'm doing a transcript analysis for AS Eng. Lang. Do you have an analysis lying around? If you do, it'd be much appreciated.
