OCR concept
Introduce students to the PETER model for writing paragraphs (Learner Resource 1.7). 
Instead of the usual PEE paragraphs, including the T (terminology) and R (relate) encourages students to include these key aspects in their analysis. 
P= point: introduce an idea about the text, an idea or feeling conveyed 
E= evidence 
T= terminology 
E= explanation of effects which needs to be developed and extended 
R= relate to the question, the context in which it was written, or the overall argument of the essay
Development activity 
To revise and recap terminology, present students with a series of images which represent a particular literary technique e.g. the yin yang symbol for juxtaposition; a light bulb for light imagery; Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe portrait for repetition. 
Using these visual representations of the techniques can help students to remember the terms and the features that they relate to.
