The AQA component 1 Hot or Not activity is designed for students evaluating the A level extracts. The students should use one Hot or Not planning sheet for each extract they are studying. They are to colour in the thermometer depending on how convinced they are by the arguments. It encourages them to use specific evidence to support their evaluation. The students should also consider one argument which is not completely convincing. This helps them to achieve ‘balance’ in AQA A level answers. Our planning sheet also prompts the students to think about evaluative language. These are perfect as short activities or more lengthy exam practice. They are perfect for anybody studying AQA component 1.
