Have a look at the SQA’s Understanding Standards website – it’s got example scripts and commentary from markers, so you can see what kind of thing scores well, and what needs more work.
This will help prepare you for your Literary Study essay next week.
Below is the marking guidelines for portfolio pieces, both creative and discursive. You should have a look at these and familiarise yourself with them, particularly when working on your own folio pieces.
As you look at the exemplars today, try and consider why those pieces scored what they did.
Folio marking scheme
A really helpful guide to using imaginative and compelling imagery in your writing.
Okay folks, so for this you need to bring three things:
- A first draft of a folio piece
- A copy of that where you have reflected on your work and taken reasonably detailed notes on how to improve – this can be handwritten notes, like the image below, or be written in the Comments option in Word (in the Review tab at the top)
- A second draft where you have edited and improved the piece, based on your own reflections.
This is due Thursday 15th December.
Can I have the updated drafts of your folio pieces before the holidays, please? These will then be marked and your FINAL folio deadline will be Monday 18th April, where I’d like you to email me digital copies of your pieces.
