Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Hobson's Choice GCSE Activity Pack (exams from 2017)

Set text for: Edexcel

A thought-provoking play with many literary influences, Hobson’s Choice raises important questions of class, choice and self-improvement. This activity pack tackles all the relevant skills needed for Edexcel Literature through a variety of structured and considered tasks, with emphasis on important contextual factors as well as quotation recall and analysis.

All the thinking/planning has been done – now you simply use the material as it best suits your class. S Owen, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

Activities include:

  • Insightful questions
  • Stimulating reading and writing tasks
  • Pair and group work
  • Creative activities for visual and kinaesthetic learners
  • Appealing tasks based on modern media

Carefully considered structure develops understanding:

  1. Build a foundation for learning and get students interested with introductory pre-reading exercises.
  2. Dig deeper with text-based activities. Every chapter is explored through a range of thought-provoking tasks.
  3. Consolidate knowledge with whole-text activities focusing on: Characterisation • Relationships • Setting • Themes • Ideas and Messages • Language • Form • Structure • Context

All activities are perfectly matched to the GCSE Assessment Objectives, and the fantastic structure makes the pack accessible for your whole class (differentiation is built in).

Plus! Suggested answers for questions and activities included.
