Resources to teach every chapter of the novel in preparation for the new AQA linear specification. The class I taught this with were a bottom set, of D/E ability so may be especially useful for those with lower ability, but also easily adaptable for higher ability.
I was daunted by reading such a complex novella cover to cover with a bottom set, as the new spec demands, but the class and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
There are two assessments and assessment preparation included based on pre-release material from AQA. (Chapter 2 and 4)

This booklet contains over 24 exam style questions based on all the key extracts from Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Jekyll and Hyde’. Exam questions are worded in accordance with the latest GCSE English Literature 9-1 specification.
Whilst I created this resource with AQA in mind, I’m sure this would prove useful for other exam boards too. Extracts are in chronological order, so students also revise plot and the development of themes/ideas as they tackle the questions. Each question is unique, meaning that the study guide covers all the major themes, events and characters in the novella.
Ideal for all teachers as there are (obviously) very fewpast papers for the new specification. I reckon I’ve predicted a few future exam questions here!
Visual aids for each chapter, and for certain extracts, are provided to help remind students of key events. There’s also a page of exam tips to help students produce more effective exam responses, containing content and analysis that examiners are specifically looking for. 40 pages jam packed with content.
This would make the ideal companion to the study guide/student workbook I have produced on this novella (see shop)
