What does the acronym PASCOP stand for?

Discussion in 'English' started by richard..ubrooks, Jan 23, 2012.

  1. Hi all
    I am looking for ways to teach understanding non fiction texts for english language gcse, I use aforest for persuasive and fishclubb for presentational devices but I have heard of another acronym, PASCOP, to use i think when reading texts - I guess that purpose and audience are in there somewhere but I can't work out the others....
    I have googled it to no avail and asked other teachers...
    Could anybody help?

    Sorry - new one on me.
    Another that's a new one on me and I can't fathom. It's for writing about media texts and it's "FLIC". Anyone know that one?
    (a by the bye pedantic point - acronyms, conventionally, shouldn't be spelt with more than one capital letter. These ones shouldn't have any capitals really.)
    I don't know what to think when I see exam scripts saying, "the passage is good because of all the AFOREST in it"!

    Could be a version of PASCOE. Purpose Audience Style Content Organisation English. Not sure what the second P would be though. As for FLIC...!

    Well done there sweetie. Could the 2nd P be paragraphing?

  6. Perhaps: language, institutions, conventions? I don't know about the f though. :)
