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.

W Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience Activity Pack

An extremely helpful resource. It will not only enhance the lessons of Blake enthusiasts but also provide a good guide for those new to teaching Blake at A Level or part of the Pastoral tradition. J Sallabank, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Challenging and stimulating student worksheets which support the exploration of William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience at A Level.

All worksheets are preceded by comprehensive teacher’s notes which clearly lay out learning objectives, Assessment Objectives and suggestions on how to deliver the activities and include them in your SOW.

Includes four sections with activities to:

  • Introduce key aspects of Blake’s poetry, such as contextual influences, the pastoral genre and his engravings
  • Compare and contrast opposing poems
  • Analyse single poems
  • Explore themes throughout the collection, such as feminism and Marxism

Perfect for an AQA B, OCR or WJEC English Literature scheme of work, for which this is a set text, or to dip into when you need a focussed and challenging activity.


What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5096)
"A comprehensive resource which provides a good companion to Blake's poetry. Provides alternative interpretations to support students. Provides excellent contextual information on Blake - particularly well researched on the historical and political background to Blake's work." A Davenport, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I feel that this is a comprehensive resource, which covers the requirements of more than one exam board. I like the detailed contextual information provided, so that even a NQT who has never taught William Blake before is able to pick up the resources and deliver a relatively intense lesson. The resource provides both individual analysis of some poems and cross comparisons of others. In this way, students are able to develop both their analytical skills as well as their ability to compare and contrast which is very important when answering questions on Innocence & Experience." M Sader, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"This is an extremely helpful resource. It will not only enhance the lessons of Blake enthusiasts but also provide a good guide for those new to teaching Blake at A Level or part of the Pastoral tradition. The sequencing of the lessons and activities were practical and engaging. The resource provides generally good coverage of the Assessment Objectives for the AQA Lit B examination. The activities are helpfully associated to the specific AO, to help teachers and students understand how what is being learned fits with the demands of the examination. Poems are helpfully juxtaposed to illuminate key themes and to allow students to make thoughtful links. It also makes links to the Independent and Further Reading Unit (Unit 4) through encouraging students to adopt Marxist and Feminist interpretations of the poems." J Sallabank, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
