Tackling the Narrative 8 mark question for the Edexcel GCSE Period Study lesson resources

The tricky 8 mark narrative question towards the end of the Period Study paper for the Edexcel GCSE course can throw a student in an exam. Here is a PowerPoint I use for a lesson which focuses purely on the techniques needed to produce a successful answer for this demanding question. Not only is there a PowerPoint but also the structure strips students can use to support them writing their answer.

Structure strips – Narrative 8 markers

Rainbow marking – Narrative 8 marker

Narrative question – 8 marker

An additional lesson can be found below with slight adjustments with a model paragraph with flaws for students to identify as well as a connection map starter to warm students up and help them make connections.
