Try to be creative with creating your revision tools. Here are some ideas for sites you can use to create them:
Lots of extra information and resources are now up about the Modernist poets – and there is more to come! Have a look at the main page and you’ll see that there are now individual pages for each of the poets in the anthology. Auden has lots, Eliot has lots about Prufrock (La Figlia is to come). The others are soon to be updated.
There are also some really interesting articles that have been added to the context page for the modernists. One of them is labelled as a MUST READ so add that to your required reading.
Some extra Handmaid’s Tale resources for the A level English literature class. Check out the new pages on Form and the dystopian novel, and a link to a Wiki. There is also a new context page on the Lebensborn program which is essential viewing. Some pages about the characters are in the process of being built as well, so keep an eye on those.
We’ve added some more revision tips to our pages and a really lovely knowledge organiser for Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Romeo and Juliet, the Anthology Poetry and An Inspector Calls. These can’t be used as the only form of revision, but make a good PLC/checklist and a nice cribsheet to run through on the morning of the examinations. We’ve also added a context knowledge organiser for Romeo and Juliet.
We have added some new revision guides to help you with the purposes in Language Paper 2 Section B (Argue, Persuade, Inform/Explain and Advise). Have a look!
There are also brand new targeted revision packs for each of the individual GCSE English language papers. They’re in the practice papers sections for Paper 1 Section A and Paper 2 Section A.
We’ve added a new practice paper 1 in the form of a video. We’ve added it to the section A page for you – remember to complete it in timed conditions if its to be effective practice.
There are also some new Mr Bruff videos attached to some of the anthology poem pages for GCSE. They include Mr Bruff talking through student exemplar poetry essays and give you some great ideas for comparison. Scroll down to the bottom of the pages for Ozymandias, Tissue, Kamikaze, War Photographer, Poppies, Remains, London and Bayonet Charge.
What a busy bank holiday! Now you can find more information on the An Inspector Calls pages. We’ve got some extra character videos and lots more in the context page. We’ve also added some advice videos.
