This substantial resource provides THREE different answers to the following question:
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. Sir Winston Churchill
Use the lines above as a stimulus for the opening of an imaginative, discursive or persuasive piece of writing. In your piece of writing incorporate at least ONE example of figurative language that you have learned about through your study of the prescribed texts for Module C.
There is an imaginative, discursive AND persuasive answer so that you can show students how the same idea can be turned three different ways, to answer this question. Students can read through the answers alone or you can use the resource to test their knowledge of factors involved in good exam writing and how one mode differs from the other.
Each answer has a response to the (b) question, requiring students to Explain how your writing in part (a) was influenced by what you have learned about figurative language through the study of your prescribed texts for Module C. The (b) sections draw on 'How to Live Before You Die' by Steve Jobs, a prescribed text for Standard English, although no knowledge of this text is required to read or teach this resource.
If you're providing each student with a copy, please remember to buy a licence for EACH COPY. Our products are priced to make this possible. Thanks for supporting teachers who write!
