9780007596799: Collins GCSE English Language And English Literature for AQA: Core Student Book

The Core Student Book provides a firm foundation of skills and knowledge for students working between Grade 2 and Grade 6. It could also be used by those targeting the highest grades to build skills in Year 9. Teach AQA’s GCSEs in English Literature and English Language as one coherent course, with Student Books structured by Assessment Objective to show the links between the two qualifications. Offer your students the right level of challenge. The Core Student Book introduces the fundamental concepts, terminology, and skills required for both GCSEs, before showing students how to combine and apply them to English Language and English Literature tasks. The Advanced Student Book revisits the Assessment Objectives at a higher level to ensure your most able students reach their full potential. Help all students make good progress. Each chapter moves from teaching the underlying skills and concepts to applying them in synoptic contexts, building writing stamina and independence. Regular "Check your progress" features allow students to gauge their progress throughout the chapter, while end-of-chapter "Apply your skills" tasks and annotated responses will help students understand how to improve. Dip in to support your own schemes of work. The clear page navigation and chapter structure will allow you to easily find skills-building lessons or sequences of lessons to guide your own teaching and planning. Save time on updating your English Language resources with our comprehensive selection of passages from 19th, 20th, and 21st-century literature and literary non-fiction, perfect for building students’ confidence in tackling unseen texts. Engage all learners with a rich and exciting approach to English Literature that takes students step-by-step through the fundamentals of how to analyse, interpret, and write critically about literature.

About the Author:

Sarah Darragh has worked in English education and assessment for over twenty years, and is an experienced teacher, trainer and writer of educational titles. Jo Heathcote is a highly experienced English Language and Literature classroom practitioner and a GCSE assessment expert. Jo is a practising teacher in Manchester, who has published resources and delivered training in all aspects of the Key stage 4 curriculum. Mike Gould is a former Head of English and Senior Lecturer in Education who has written over 150 books and digital resources for students and teachers, including Grammar for GCSE English and the bestselling Collins Cambridge IGCSE English series.

Review:

I think teaching the skills for the two GCSEs together is effective as a lot of the same skills and ideas are addressed, with arbitrary distinctions drawn for the sake of exams. However, assessing the different strands separately is vital. The structure of this book will allow for that, as there are clearly labelled different tasks to practise Language and Literature. Lucy Bircenough, The Hampstead School, London
