Literary Snapshots Booklet – Short Version | KS3 and KS4 | English Teaching Resource

A couple of years ago, I put together a booklet containing short passages (i.e. snapshots) from twenty novels with questions for each one.  You can access it by clicking here.  My aim was to introduce students to a wider range of literature and, hopefully, to generate some decent discussion and debate along the way.

The ‘short version’ that I’ve made contains all the same extracts, but I’ve removed the writing space.  This means that there are two extracts and sets of questions on each page rather than just one.  This should hopefully save a bit of money on printing costs!  Click here to access it.

Here are the extracts, which I’ve put into chronological order:
