Bemused about Architecture – thoughts on the GCSE English Exam

English teachers – help me out with this one. I finally got a chance this week to have a good look at the F Tier AQA English Language paper. It was basically what we were expecting, and the questions looked reasonable on the whole, but I’m baffled by question 4. For the uninitiated, this question asks students to ‘compare the ways that presentational features are used for effect’ in two non-fiction sources. The sources this year were a page from an information book about the Titanic, aimed at children, and a pared down and adapted version of this article about a brother and sister who survived a recent boating accident.
