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.

AQA B: ENGB4 Investigation Project Coursework Activity Pack

“So often, we found that students’ own investigations were developed through individual tutoring and student trial and error where progress could have been swifter if students had understood the significance of the qualities of the exemplar investigations that we showed them at the beginning. This resource pack is designed to encourage that understanding and engagement.” — Rupert Burgess & Sue Thornton (authors)

Activities teaching students how to produce a successful language investigation based on sample data and examples from a range of actual student investigations.

The resource is divided into four sections:
  • Section A: Assessing the success and weaknesses of real student investigations
  • Section B: Developing research skills and using concordance software
  • Section C: Working with sample data
  • Section D: Exemplar of two high-scoring full investigations which demonstrate different strengths

Also includes two recordings developed by the authors on CD to be used during transcript activities.

I’m excited about using this with my students. It is perfectly pitched for A2 students who have had little experience of truly independent study. M Courtney-Holt, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Ordering the editible version? Please note that the resource has been designed to include scanned copies of real student investigations and these cannot be edited.


What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5012)
"WOW! What a lovely, useful, generous resource. This really fills a gap in my team's delivery of this unit. This will give students such clarity about how to prepare and write their investigations. A big thank you to the authors. Wish I'd had it years ago." R Lodge, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"Excellent; a resource that would be really useful for both students and teachers who are new to the Language Investigation. I particularly liked the variety and range of investigations. I feel that students often find the investigation daunting. This resource will not only give them ideas for the own approach to the study, but allows them to unpack the investigation into manageable sections for analysis and improvement. It clearly follows the exam boards requirements for this unit and includes regular reference to the Assessment Objectives that students should be familiar with at this point in the course. As mentioned earlier, the resource is versatile and can be used by individual teachers to enhance learning according to ability and progress.
"I wish that this resource had been available for me to teach! This is more detailed than the AQA text book. This resource prepares students extremely well and is a valuable aid to teachers. It is a comprehensive resource, covering all aspects of the Language Investigation coursework. I would recommend it." G Shaw, English teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I'm excited about using this with my students. It is perfectly pitched for A2 students who have had little experience of truly independent study. Full differentiation offered through the range of the investigations offered at grades A, C & D. The content matches and interprets the AOs fully and the firm focus on students needs is palpably based on great experience and insight on the part of the writers of the resource. It also iIdentifies common pitfalls (the sample student work is very well selected) and helps students to plan their work so that these are avoided." M Courtney-Holt, English Teacher and Ind.
