The Woman in Black Gifted and Talented Pack

Totally meets the needs and demands of G&T pupils. I am genuinely looking forward to using this resource with my top set y10 next year! H Choudbury, English Teacher, Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Challenging activity pack that stretches your gifted and more able students during their exploration of The Woman in Black at GCSE. The activities demonstrate how to achieve the highest grades possible using aspects of Bloom’s Taxonomy and give students control over their own learning.

The resource covers the key areas of the text: important events, characters, context, language, structure, form, themes, ideas and interpretations. Within each key area, engaging and thought-provoking activities aim to:

  1. Prompt the recall of important points, aid comprehension and reinforce clear, advanced understanding
  2. Support literal and abstract analyses
  3. Enable students to apply their knowledge of the play to a new situation or an unseen extract, encourage individual interpretations and stimulate new, creative and individual ideas

Teacher’s notes and answers have been included for the more challenging tasks.

Achieving that A*!
Exam-style activities are also included throughout the resource to help students to practice their essay-writing skills by using an annotated response to show the best way of achieving an A*, suitable for AQA, WJEC, OCR and Edexcel English Literature.

Excellent quality - very comprehensive and totally meets the needs and demands of G&T pupils. I am genuinely looking forward to using this resource with my top set y10 next year!" H Choudbury, English Teacher

It is extremely comprehensive, activities are appropriately challenging and it is great for dipping in and out." A Baiden, English Teacher

I like the flexibility of the resource as teachers can use sections as and when needed. I also like the tips which are included on most worksheets. They are small pointers which don’t seem overwhelming to students and they can easily work them into their responses. This resource lends itself well to any student who is considering studying Literature at KS5 as language, structure and form are covered in depth. After each section an annotated response is included which is invaluable for students. Students like to see graded examples and in this resource students are shown how to achieve the highest grade possible." K Greaves, English Teacher
