Language for Literature Series One Scheme of Work

Pupils need to talk and write about many aspects of the texts they use. To do this well they need to be familiar with the major technical terms. B & D Publishing’s two Language for Literature schemes of work spanning key stages 3 and 4 aim to give pupils a sound understanding of many literary terms. These are explained and illustrated by examples. Work is provided for pupils to do on each topic.
