Hi English teachers!! We are all so busy and I am finding TES is a great new place to share resources and cut down on planning. Here I will post resources for the new GCSE specifications. I teach AQA Eng Lang and Lit - Jekyll, Inspector, Power and Conflict, Xmas Carol. I teach OCR A Level Literature and igcse resit. I also have lots of KS3 resources and starter activities which can be used for KS2 or KS3. I hope you find something of interest.

An Inspector Calls thorough exam revision for Year 11

Geared towards AQA, but can be used with any exam board. You can change the opening slide for your own exam board. 40 slides covering all characters, themes, key quotes for each character, context and how to address the AQA assessment objectives Revision coverage includes - the main theme of responsibility and how each character could be to blame for Eva/Daisy's death - which of the characters behave well or badly - who the Inspector might be and the ambiguities surrouding him - keywords and quotations for each character - a task introducing subject terminology specific to the play and Priestley's aims - social and historical context - advice on how to specifically target some of the AOs I created this presentation for a whole revision day with Year 11 during Easter holidays and could save someone in an English dept a lot of work on the last week before the exam. The students found it very helpful. I hope it is of help to someone else.
