Getting to Know... Candide

Useful for:
AQA Cultural Topics
Edexcel Research-based Essay

Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions. Students will know the novel inside out and be well prepared for the speaking and writing exams.

Logical structure offers the perfect balance between guided classwork and independent study:

  • Before: Introductory tasks prepare students – introduction to Voltaire, grammar and vocabulary exercises, research tasks into contemporary figures and events.
  • During: Chapter-by-chapter analysis. Activities include: comprehension questions, research tasks, translation, grammar and vocabulary. By studying grammar and vocabulary in the context of the novel, students develop language skills directly relevant to the exam.
  • After: Consolidation with special sections on: themes, characters, Voltaire's style, the use of irony and humour. Exam-style essay questions provide perfect exam preparation.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5709)
'I really liked the effective structure of the whole guide which prepares for A2 cultural topic exam and potentially the IB Higher Written assignment. I love the fact that grammar is made relevant with exercises based on sentences extracted from the text. There was a very useful section on specific terms used in the story and matching with definitions. I love the ‘after reading the book’ activities: great way to summarise the events, the characters, the philosophy etc.' C Parker, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
