Course Overview

This course covers the content and essential skills for KS3-level English Literature. It is ideal preparation for the PX IGCSE English Language Classroom. It is a one-year course and ideal for children who are at least 11 years old.

The aim of the course is to help students appreciate good literature, including being able to identify and comment on poetic and literary devices (e.g. alliteration, personification etc.). It investigates themes, characterisation, and techniques the writer has used to create suspense and readership appeal.

Course Method

Class notes and poems are distributed in advance. Short answers and annotations are filled in during class, but longer answers will be set for homework. A copy of the novel and play will need to be purchased.

Lessons are friendly, interactive, and focus on thinking skills. Videos, sound clips, and PowerPoints are presented and discussed during the class.

A summary video recording (with only the teacher visible) can be requested in advance by students who have to miss a lesson.
