Scottish Text – Answering the Final Question

Good morning.

Yesterday, we looked at the format of the final 10-mark question in the Scottish Text element of the Critical Reading paper and produced a model that allows you to take a consistent approach to achieving the 10 marks regardless of the question. I have attached a copy of the powerpoints we used in both classes. They have been modified slightly to suit the Scottish Text you are studying (The Slab Boys or Carol Ann Duffy poetry). The questions used are from the new Higher specimen paper released by the SQA.

Assessment Date: N6 Listening

Good morning.

Just a quick heads up about your first N6 internal assessment date.

You will sit an N6 Listening test (part of the Analysis and Evaluation unit) on Thursday 11th September during the double period.

The assessment will require you to listen to a clip of someone giving a talk on a specific subject and to respond to a set of questions about the content, structure and style of the talk.
