Language of the Fight - War, Propaganda, Protest and more


Study the language of the fight, including:

Romanticising war


Rousing war-cries (battle speeches)


Calls to arms (including protest)


This resource will work as a teacher reference and/or a student workbook and includes plenty of texts to use for practice or even an assessment piece. You can use it 'complete' or just pick the parts you need.


Along the way, students compile a language kete - words and phrases that will help them describe ideas and language, as well as strategies and techniques used by writers/speakers.


You'll get one 50+ page booklet that includes:

⭐ 'How to' analyse and annotate your text.

⭐ Reference/background information.

⭐ Writer/speaker strategies and language techniques.

⭐ Student activities based on sound close reading practices as well as preparation for the way students must 'think' for 1.1 Contexts Shape Language.

⭐ Text examples - including transcripts

⭐ A language kete - students are encouraged to gather words and phrases as they work through this booklet (or parts of it) to help them later when it's time to discuss/write about their text.


You and your students will enjoy:

❤️ A bit of banter, life skills and interesting tidbits along the way.

❤️ Links to video clips plus their transcripts all done!

❤️ If nothing else, a good starting point for your study of other texts of your own choosing.

❤️ Naturally, the editability of this document...oh, and it's quite pretty too, I reckon.

  • Sharing/Copying this Resource

    Feel free to purchase just one for your department - no need for a copy for each teacher.  However:

    • Please do NOT share with the school down the road. 
    • Please do NOT take it with you to a new school.
    • Feel free to suggest the website to others - that'd be great!

    That's pretty fair I think!  Let's help each other out.  :)
