AQA English Literature Paper 2 Bundle: Modern Texts and Poetry  (version 2)

AQA English Literature Paper 2 Bundle: Modern Texts and Poetry (version 2)

Three complete units of work that go through the teaching of An Inspector Calls, all 15 of the Conflict and Power poems AND a selection of Unseen Poems. I've included a version of the poetry anthology I've created that lends itself to annotating and revising better than the AQA version too - bit of a beast that. Also, you will find attached a spreadsheet that allows you to track the scores for all of these components.
