Overview and Guide to Grids for the Edexcel Anthology Texts

These teaching grids can be used with any GCSE syllabus for which the analysis of non-fiction, media, poetry or prose is required. Whilst initially intended for those pupils sitting the Edexcel English Language and English Literature iGCSE / Certificates, they have been created to work across all exam boards and to be multi-purpose, hopefully providing a worthwhile and timesaving resource. A free copy of the anthology is available from the Edexcel website.

Possible ways of using them in your teaching include:

  • as resources to help you yourself get to grips with the texts before you teach them
  • as easily-editable texts to produce ‘cloze’ activities for students to complete in different ways
  • as style models for students to produce their own grids for different texts, including unseen texts
  • as resources which will broaden your students’ use of terminology and vocabulary
  • as examples of different textual interpretation
  • as examples of high level textual analysis
  • as revision tools
