This is based on an exercise in the Pearson Student Book and have found the answers very useful! My C set year 11 pupils have really enjoyed the topic and watching parts of the documentary. Now that they have had a go at finding their own examples of the various language features in the extract and trying to explain the effects, I am going to cut up the answer sections so that they can match up the language methods with the impact created. Some pairs will do Joe's account and some will do Simon's, followed by feedback to each other. We will be following this up with some creative work - writing about an incident from two different points of view.

Hi,

We'd love to publish the extract for you but unfortunately aren't able to due to copyright restrictions. The extract that is used in the resource can be found in the Edexcel IGCSE anthology on page 5 (the anthology is available on their website). The page references for the text will differ depending on the version used, but the extract can be found in Chapter 5 of the book.

I hope this helps.

Not much use if we don't at least have the relevant page numbers.

It'd be good if the extract from the text was included. Is it available online anywhere?
