This year, I had a student in my year 11 class who had given up.
That’s not an exaggeration.
He was refusing to write anything at all.
The issue was nerves and this simple sheet, made just for him, really was the solution I never expected it to be.
Useful as a basic scaffold for any Literature questions or reading questions in the Language exam, this enables those students who are struggling or who have given up to access anything.
I gave my student a stack of them to keep in his book and he just whipped them out whenever he had to choose and explain quotes.
This really did enable him to get a five in Literature. I was genuinely astounded.
I’ve included the handwritten sheets I made for him too, in case they’re of any use.
