I’m never really sure about how much stuff to give my wards over the Easter break. The temptation is to bundle a load of documents together and then hand them all over as a pack. However, by this stage of the course, students have already accrued stacks (and stacks) of notes and resources, so I tend to be a bit wary of giving them even more. Too much can be as bad as too little. I want the kids I teach to really engage with the information they’ve already got. So, I’ve put together a simple GCSE English Literature study pack. The format’s pretty straightforward for each component:
1. Core questions that require students to revisit their notes and the texts themselves
2. Some wider reading or viewing
3. A specimen exam task (taken from the SAMs 2 resources on eAQA).
The texts covered are below:
- The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
- An Inspector Calls
- Power and Conflict poetry
- Unseen poetry

Hope it’s helpful. Should be easy enough to adapt.
