Carefully considered structure develops understanding:

  1. Build a foundation for learning and get students interested with introductory pre-reading exercises.
  2. Dig deeper with text-based activities for every scene. Carefully structured activities, including close reading, imaginative writing tasks and SPaG practice, are written with Ofsted in mind.
  3. Consolidate knowledge with whole-text activities focusing on: Characterisation • Relationships • Setting • Themes • Ideas and Messages • Language • Form • Structure • Context

All activities are perfectly matched to the GCSE Assessment Objectives. The fantastic structure makes the pack suitable for all abilities, with differentiated worksheets linked to aspects of Bloom's taxonomy.

Activities include:

  • Insightful questions
  • Stimulating reading and creative writing tasks
  • Pair and group work
  • Drama, spoken language and SPaG practice
Plus! Teaching notes and suggested answers show how to implement the student activities in your classroom.

What do teachers say about this resource? (1419)

It’s terrific. Not sure I could improve it! This resource is useful for the full range of candidates. The tasks cover the full range of skills. Worksheets are differentiated to support all pupils’ abilities... How great are the SPaG tasks? Answer: very great! They tie in with the new specs, including WJEC where pupils are asked to proofread and correct mistakes... It’s a very thorough resource.

A very good resource... Very student- and teacher-friendly. It would clearly enhance learning – there are many tasks for each scene/act, and key characters are unpicked and explored in more depth. Planning activities are extremely focused on the new GCSE specifications... students would get a lot from these and they have been well scaffolded to support lower-ability groups. I really liked the 'extend your knowledge' elements.
