Non-fiction texts 2016 #2


I am looking at Question 2 with my CIE iGCSE groups this week.

So here is a new text that can be used for Q1 and Q2.

It’s a mostly-made-up-by-me travel blog about a women travelling in Morocco.

Travelling Tough – text only – this one is just the blog, with no questions.

Travelling Tough – iGCSE Q2 question – here’s a version with the Q2 on it.

Travelling Tough – annotated for teachers – here’s where I’ve annotated it with possible quotes.

If you are using it for Q1 as well.

I would suggest that you might set the following question.

You are Sara Jones. You are being interviewed by a representative from the Moroccan tourist board about your trip.  Write the words of the interview. Start with the first question.

  • What are your most positive memories of your time in Morocco?
  • What did you find most difficult during your trip?
  • What advice would you give to other women travelling to Morocco?

Be careful to use your own words as far as possible. Aim to write between 200 – 250 words.

Here is the source document for the blog, as you can see I changed it extensively.
