How To Write An English Coursework Commentary

 
  1. Hello! Well, to put it simply I'm stuck.
    I am doing AS level English Language, and I'm confused on how to write my commentary for my creative writing. I just... don't know how to start it. Or what to include. Me, being the stupid person that I am, have lost my sheet with the linguistic features which I have to highlight in my story and explain. Gaah.
    D:
    I'd be very greatful if you helped. :] In fact, I'd love you forever.
    Also, Do you know where I could find an example of a commentary? (For a story?)

    Thank you!

  2. You want to structure your commentary systematically, using the frameworks. You need to show how you've crafted the piece to accommodate for the GASP (Genre Audience Subject Purpose). I can send you my commentary, if you like. I achieved 87/90 in the coursework.

This original writing and commentary was awarded an A* in summer 2017 when it was submitted to AQA, I am now sharing it with others in the hope it will be helpful.

The original writing was based on the 'power of persuasion' since it is an OpEd, so, together with the commentary, would be hugely beneficial to students interested in this approach since it shows what standard is required for the top grades.

However, this resource would of course be beneficial to all students as an introduction to the NEA, showing them how they can draw on what they have learned so far in their A level and how to approach the commentary, something they may be unfamiliar with.

This resource truly is invaluable to show students what they should be aiming for and could even inspire their own work.

Check out my other A Level English Language resources as well as my NEA resource- an A* Language investigation.
