Hey,
I just wanted to ask for advice for the different types of style models for 'Writing to Persuade' and 'Writing to Entertain'. You see, I've not really got the grasp of style models just yet and I needed a little help. I'd appreciate it if you could give me any other advice on the AS English Language Course.

PS, Is there anywhere that I could get a sample coursework just to get an idea of what to include, how long it should be etc.

Thanks soooo much xxxx

I've just finished AS English Language. When we did the coursework, we did 2 written pieces. My first was writing to argue so all I did was go onto the internet and found an article which was written to argue against something (In my case it was arguing again abortion) and then from there all you have to do is read through it, see what features are used/what's typical for argumentative pieces and then you can try and include them in your coursework. (same applies to whichever purpose) As for length, we were told anywhere between 1000-1250 words, however there was a bit of leeway either side so if we went over by 50 then it wasn't a problem. When you've finished the written piece you'll have to write a commentary on both pieces, this isn't hard at all, it's just simply to comment on some of the language features/techniques that you've used in your written piece. (500 words at most) Hope I've helped, ask any other questions if needed (whether it be about coursework or exam). I got an A in the coursework if you're wondering.

thanks a lot for helping me out with the main guidelines...although, i want to just ask you that do you think a political speech would be a good idea for my 'writing to persuade' piece? im just so confused at the moment because i really dont know what kind of style models or topic to choose for both the persuade and entertain pieces. also, what did you write for your 'entertain' piece. i've considered some sort of teenage magazine but im not so sure. it's because ive been told that both courseworks have to be completely different, in style and the target audience.

btw, i forgot to mention...well done!! hopefully i'll get a similar grade lol. what did you get for your english language and literature GCSE?

Yeah, it can be literally anything! My first piece was writing to argue/entertain and I did it about X-factor... (don't ask why) lol. My 2nd piece was writing to inform and it was a Travel guide about Switzerland! Completely random! lol. Yes I think a political speech would be good as a style model for you! a few people in my class chose to do speeches when they were writing to persuade etc. As for a topic for you, try and do something that you're passionate about, then you will be able to write lots about it! Remember, it can be completely anything. Teenage magazines would be a good idea in that case because you're a teenage yourself so you'd be an expert at it! Yes, they do have to be somewhat different, it just shows the examiner a bit of variation If you have any more questions feel free to ask them! and thanks! ...... I'm sure you will do well! I was predicted an A but messed up the exam a bit, which I'm now resitting next summer! :mad:

and I got an A in English Language and a B in English Lit at GCSE (Hate lit) lol.

haha! i think the majority of my class hated their English Literature lessons. i'll get definitely be asking you more questions once I get started on my courseworks (which will probably be in a week or two). the main problem with me is that im quite flexible in terms of the types of topics to choose from but i get spoilt for choice and it takes me AGES to think up of something lol

do you think i should watch political speeches and try to make my own up or should i get the transcript of the speech? oh, and would i need to show the transcript as a sort of evidence for a style model?

That's ok, ask anything you need to know!

You will need the transcript because you need to read it and highlight all of the techniques used as you will need to include them in your coursework! and yes you need to show it! Good luck.
