  • reading a range of unseen texts
  • analysing the ways in which linguistic elements come together in a text to create meaning
  • recognising different nonfiction textual forms and their conventions
  • writing analytically about the effects produced by a range of linguistic elements and literary features
  • integrating individual analytical points into broader overall responses to texts
  • selecting and interpreting words and phrases from a text with care and precision
  • recognising and commenting on the overall style of a text, and exemplifying this through specific instances of language analysis
  • using quotations and evidence, with judgement, to produce precise, meaningful commentaries
  • using appropriate language to link quotations and evidence with explanatory comments
  • integrating quotations and evidence into a cohesive argument
  • writing short, directed pieces in response to a text
  • writing in the same style as another text
  • writing in a different style from a text at the same time as re-using the content/material
  • comparing the style and linguistic elements of their own writing with those of a given text.

You will explore and experiment with a similarly extensive variety of genres, styles and contexts in your writing.  Skills you will learn:

  • writing for a specified audience and purpose, to fulfil the brief provided
  • producing an appropriate structure for longer pieces of writing
  • organising writing to achieve specific effects 
  • structuring paragraphs
  • using a range of appropriate linguistic elements and literary features
  • expressing ideas accurately and clearly at both sentence and word level
  • reflecting upon and evaluating the qualities of their own writing, including aspects relating to its purpose, form and audience

IA2 Modules

Section A

Language change In Section A, learners will explore how English has continually adapted to reflect changes in the social, cultural, political and technological contexts in which it has been used.

Learners will explore the causes and consequences of language change in English, developing their knowledge of the topic through research, analysis, and an understanding of conventional methods of presenting historical language data.

Section B

Child language acquisition In Section B, learners will explore the stages of early development (0–8 years) in child language acquisition, considering the various features and functions of spoken language use during this period, and familiarising themselves with a range of relevant theories, theorists and conventions within the field.

Section A

English in the world In Section A, learners will explore the history of English as a ‘global’ language; the development of standard and nonstandard forms of English, including the varieties used by first-language users outside the UK; and ethical considerations related to the continuing expansion of English usage around the world.

Section B

Language and the self In Section B, learners will explore how language allows us to communicate our sense of self to others, as well as playing a highly significant role in the ongoing construction, determination and development of that self. Learners will study the degree to which language is innate, learned, or both; the ways in which language and thought are both interwoven with, and separable from, each other; and how we use language, both consciously and unconsciously, to construct and maintain social identities.
