Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:

  • 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.

AQA Anthology —
Sunlight on the Grass Resource Pack



SoW and resources (notes, activities and worksheets) for the new Prose Anthology



Flexible SoW
The suggested varied, creative teaching approaches ensure active learning and the SoW 'gives guidance, but allows teachers to adapt and differentiate for their own classes' (N Worgan).

Comprehensive resources for each short story

Notes
    Themes, characters and setting for quick reference/revision
Activities
  • Pre-reading activity to set the context
  • Discussion points to explore meanings
  • Extension activities to stretch the more able
Worksheets and Handouts
  • Author's techniques
  • 'What to look for in a short story'


Assessment-focused
The stories are linked under the themes of 'childhood', 'relationships' and 'good versus evil' to give students a clear focus on the possible links between the stories - perfect for assessment. Plus:
  • Sample exam questions and sample essay, with examiner's commentary, for the AQA Literature exam
  • Sample controlled assessment tasks for AQA Language & AQA English


  • "Very good. Clear and well structured. Would give pupils a clear understanding of the stories and hopefully introduce them to the stories in an enjoyable way."
    N Worgan, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

     



What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3841)
"Insightful and intelligent resource. Easy to use and understand. If you are new to the spec, this resource improves confidence and suggests what to expect in the exam." E Worthington, Head of English and Satisfied Customer
'Very good. Clear and well structured. It would be easy to use in the classroom and save a lot of time for teachers. I liked the structure of activities for each story so pupils know what to look for/what to expect. I also liked the variety of suggested teaching approaches, to save lessons from becoming too "dry". The linking of themes is particularly useful too as it gives learners a clear focus. It would give pupils a clear understanding of the stories and hopefully introduce them to the stories in an enjoyable way.The suggested schemes of work would also enhance learning as they give guidance but will allow taechers to adapt and add detail to differentiate for their own classes and learners. The section on the controlled assessment is useful as it gives clear guidance for the new specification.' N Worgan, HoD and Independent Reviewer
