These are my resources for helping students prepare for the Curious Incident (play version) question on the AQA English Literature paper. The cheat sheet is designed to narrow down the number of quotations students attempt to learn, and allow them to link quotations to multiple themes, and character questions, in order to overcome the fear of answering questions without the text or extract.
Together, both files contain 38 small quotations, and by memorising as many as possible of these, students will be able to access and answer any exam question they are faced with.
The first file is purely for Christopher, with the themes that can be related to his character and then the quotations that have been selected. The smaller boxes are where the students should revise that quote - reminding themselves of its context in the play, and putting some technical analysis. On the remaining pages there are larger boxes for students to make notes as to how each quotation links to different themes, perhaps writing some practice sentences and paragraphs to ensure they can link each one specifically. The second file is the same, but containing quotations for Ed, Judy, Siobhan and Stage Directions.
