AQA B Lit: Teaching Tragedy: Introductory Scheme for A Level

AQA B Literature Teaching Tragedy

An Introductory Scheme for A Level

A 12-lesson scheme providing a concise introduction for students. Students learn the history, origin and theory of tragedy and the development of the English tragic style, using extracts from such plays as Oedipus Rex, Hamlet and A Doll’s House.

Students are taught through worksheets and activities including:

  • Extracts of texts
  • Annotation and close reading tasks
  • Research activities
  • Conventional and re-creative tasks for varied coursework practice

Also includes suggested coursework titles and rewritten ‘student-friendly’ AOs.

"Useful for experienced & new teachers. The variety of homework tasks will enable the students to feel prepared to write their coursework tasks & have confidence undertaking re-creative pieces. It … offers a comprehensive overview of two thousand years of tragedy. Students will have encountered so many different texts by the end of it & explored meanings in so many ways the pack enhances their skills as readers."
Nicolas Hall, AQA B A Level Teacher & Independent Reviewer

"It will give teachers & students greater confidence in approaching this new module & specification. The activities are very well-designed, involving students in a variety of collaborative & creative tasks that will develop their learning. The organisation of the Resource into 12 discrete lessons is user-friendly, enabling a teacher to select what they want to focus on."
