This is a short revision booklet that I created for my year 11 set 9 (it could be used with higher ability pupils too) which takes them through basic revision for ‘An Inspector Calls’, ‘Macbeth’ and ‘A Christmas Carol’. I intend to walk the pupils through this resource and go through the activities and ideas with them in our Easter revision session although it may be useful for independent revision preparation as we enter the final stages of revision. I teach the AQA English Literature specification and have used the specimen 3 question for ‘AIC’ in this pack. Hopefully it may be useful to you and your students!
