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.

An Inspector Calls Activity Pack

With specialised worksheets to meet the needs of the new specifications — all activities matched to the Assessment Objectives.

'This is an excellent resource, worth purchasing by any English Department studying the text for the new GCSE. I liked the wealth of worksheets, accessing all aspects of the study of the text. They are very varied and include elements of challenge to both Higher and Foundation Tier students. This very effectively matches the new specification for WJEC, as well as the other two boards listed. It really is a superb resource.' E Hewitt, HoD and Independent Reviewer


The beauty of this resource is that the wealth of engaging activities, including an activity for every main event, allows the teacher to find stimulating work at any time!

Special 'Extract Analysis' worksheets:

  1. Challenge students to explore the language, audience reactions
    and writer's viewpoints of the play
  2. Prepare students for extract-style exam questions.

Includes a fun multiple choice quiz to test knowledge.

'The language is pupil friendly… The pupil resources allow pupils to work independently, using the text for reference and actively engaging with a variety of themes and aspects of social context. This resource has begun to help me see possibilities for teaching the text under the new spec.'
N Fleming, Assistant Subject Leader for English and Independent Reviewer

"Cuts down on planning and resource development considerably. Saves so much time!" C Davies, Assistant Head of English and satisfied customer
'The range of activities and ways of presenting information avoids the "death by worksheet" approach. I like the clear focus on both language and literature. I really like the tasks that focus on stagecraft. Students do enjoy studying the play and I feel these resources seamlessly introduce the controlled assessment requirements without destroying their enthusiasm'. J Whitbread, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
