    Posted by Abdullah Williams on November 5, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    You need to refer to the GCSE English Language and Literature curricula for this question.

    The GCSE English Language and Literature curricula share similarities and differences.

    Use details from both curricula to write a summary of what you understand about
    the similarities and differences between the two curricula.

    • To answer this question, pay attention to lessons 16 to 22 in unit 9.
    • Remember to make perceptive inferences, such as which skills you think will need more or less focus, which are likely to provide the most challenge for you personally, how you might prepare for them, and so on.
    • Remember to write your answer in Google Docs first, and then copy and paste them into your reply.
    • Write between 250 and 300 words.
    • Check over the quality, including SPAG.
    • When you have finished writing your answer, post it here.
    • Write in detail and in your own words.
    • For assistance, you can also view and comment on other students’ responses.
    • You can download and use the Sophicly analysis toolkit to help you answer the questions.

    When you have finished, return to the lesson and mark it complete.

    For English Literature and English Language Section A, you are required to use mostly academic writing in your answers, while in English Language Section B you are required to use creative writing in your answers.

    English Literature requires you to analyse a text and answer questions varying in length. It also requires you to analyse imaginative writing and be able to think deeper behind the meaning of the text, much like in English Language Section A. However, in English Language Section B, you need to master descriptive and creative writing as you could be asked to write either a creative or descriptive piece. You will also need to master leaflets, letters and speeches, which is not required in English Literature. You will also need to be able to compare two different texts or views in both English Language Section A and English Literature.

    Imaginative writing has a big effect on your grade in English Language Section B since you have to get half of your marks from creative or descriptive writing. This means that it needs to be mastered and practised just as much as other types of writing. Additionally, you can be asked to write different types of writing such as letters, speeches and leaflets, meaning you need to be experienced in a variety of different writing types.

    Finally, English Literature requires you to be able to write argumentative essays so you also need to practise the argumentative essay structure because this is an area that is easy to lose marks.
