Description

If you loved our GCSE teaching pack Reading non-fiction texts, then try our follow-up pack – Reading more non-fiction texts.

This 20-lesson pack is full of practical and creative lesson ideas to support your KS4 students with analysing and decoding language. It features texts from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries and looks at themes such as technology, poverty, imprisonment, travel and censorship.

'Practising a range of different approaches to close analysis, especially when comparing texts, can help students get to grips with the skills they will need in the exam. Also, choosing from such a variety of interesting texts can really draw students in to imagining, for example, how awful life must have been for the poor living in 19th century London … or the grim practicalities of being held captive in 1980s Beirut.’

Linda Newton, writer

The pack includes exam-style questions for all exam boards.

Key features:

  • 10 non-fiction text excerpts with a thematically linked ‘partner’ text
  • 20 lesson plans and ideas along with 51 bespoke resources
  • exam-style questions for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC Eduqas.

Looks fabuous and effective for helping student sto read nonfiction. Will use it next school year with pleasure. Especially important is the concept of paired texts and the possibility of aligning these to fiction texts.

This is a fantastic resource, super useful for helping students towards their GCSEs. Would you consider making one with unseen fiction in mind, such as in the OCR language GCSE?
