1 - MEDIA

2 - NON FICTION 

3 - ARGUE, PERSUADE, ADVISE

4 - ANALYSE, REVIEW, COMMENT

5 - POETRY FROM OTHER CULTURES

So, with your tips, write the number(s) of the task that is refers to.

Heyya, I have my english paper 1 2morrow

1. reading section paper 1 - summarising questions are 6 marks so i would suggest 6 points with qoutes ( do not analyse) and interpret in your own wods and move onto the next 1

Fact and opinion - Use PEAK paragraphs, usually 8 marks, so 4 peak paragraphs, i would suggest 2 facts and 2 opinions and their effect, be specific not general

use a highlighter

3. plan before you write.opening paragraph should capture readers interest and state viewpoint. use a range of techniques and key words.

5. poems form other cultures - do not waffle on about what the poet is saying, try to stick to what effects are usedin the poem and how the poet uses them and why, that will get you the marks. Compare poems along side each other so you do not run out for time.

i hope that helps :)
