AQA B Lit: Pre-1800 Pastoral Poetry Definitive Teaching Guide w/audio

Pre-1800 Pastoral Poetry: The Definitive Teaching Guide

for AQA B Literature Unit LITB3

An intelligently-planned guide of teachers notes with engaging questions analysing every poem. With special focus upon the overarching theme of 'pastoral' in preparation for the examination.

Poetry analysis broken down into sections for in-depth study:

  • Biographical context - Summary - Date of composition - Themes - Language
  • Explanatory notes & commentary - Structure - Form - Pastoral

Expansive examination guidance includes:

  • Examination criteria explained, using a "Best answers will include…" approach
  • Examination-style questions
  • Scaffolds and sample examination answers

"It sets out the contexts of the poems, the poems themselves & then how to analyse the poems with the Assessment Objectives in mind. I particularly liked example essays & how to set out answers — an excellent resource."
S Fallon, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
