Discussion-based tasks! Throughout: oral tasks creatively engage students with the text, improving key articulation skills and providing that essential assessment practice!

Tackles the key stages of text analysis:

  1. Walk-through
    Thorough section-by-section commentary walks students through each chapter
  2. Drawing it all together
    In-depth discussion of whole text focuses on areas such as: characterisation, relationships, genre, themes, attitudes and values, language, form, structure, context, literary approaches
  3. Put into practice
    Sample assessment materials replicate the structure of the oral commentary so students know exactly what to expect. Guiding and probing questions cater for all abilities. Plus! Discussion questions for HL students.

What do teachers say about this resource? (7050)

A very detailed and useful resource. The character analyses are very insightful... The section on themes and symbolism is very helpful. The key quotations are helpful for revision... Very useful contextual information which is clearly linked to the characters and their circumstances is included and is helpful... I like the summaries of each chapter which are useful for clarity and revision of what is a very complex text which jumps between various narrators... The chapter summaries are coupled with interesting tasks and very helpful guiding questions and activities that will support pupils in gaining a thorough understanding and engagement with the text.
