Victorian Era Wider Reading

For AQA A Level Literature Units 1 and 2

A brilliant idea! Comprehensively covers the 'Wider Reading' component of the AS course, using thematically linked extracts and supporting notes. The nature of this resource helps students to gather ideas from a broad range of texts and appreciate how different aspects link together.

  • Class representations
  • Railways
  • Industry
  • Relationships and gender
  • Empire

  • Prose, poetry and fiction!
  • Special analysis planning sheets to guide students
  • Extension exercises focusing on Rossetti's Goblin Market and Browning's Aurora Leigh

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3293)
"This resource would serve as a good insight into the different contextual issues before embarking on the coursework element of the syllabus. Pupils are expected to be able to cross-reference and to bring in wider reading - and this is certainly covered in this resource. All very accessible for A Level pupils. "L Kirby, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"The resource is well organised with a good balance between teacher notes and student activities. The extracts are well chosen; strong comparisons and contrasts can be made."C Webb, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"Lots of suggestions for a structured approach to a variety of texts. Clear and impressive links to assessment objectives."C Salisbury, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
"A useful resource. I particularly liked the grouping of extracts into themes, the mind map for pulling knowledge together and the clear focus on language, structure and form throughout. The materials focus well on the skills students will need to develop if they are to do well in the AQA LITA1 exam."H Harvey, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
"An excellent range of materials on the Victorian era. The quotes and extracts will encourage the students to further their reading as most were evocative and well chosen... good range of activities too... It gives detailed analysis of Victorian Literature and also encourages the students to record their own wider reading (paying close attention to AOs) This will enable each student to give a varied, detailed answer for AQA A Literature assessments."S Fallon, English Teacher & Ind. Reviewer
