Overview

These 9 commentaries on the poems of Robert Frost are intended to function in two ways: as generic sets of notes for teaching any of these poems at GCSE or A Level, and, predominantly, as teaching notes for the AQA AS level unit, LITB1, ‘Aspects of Narrative’.

They can be used for both Section A and Section B of the LITB1 exam, since Frost can be used in either section. They focus on the following assessment objectives:

  • AO1 - Articulate, creative, informed and relevant responses to literary texts,...

I love teaching this text; in fact, I see it as one of the most versatile (and important) things that I deliver across all of my KS5 classes – be it A Level, Pre-U or on the IB.

I know Eliot’s poetry appears in various forms across a wide range of specifications and courses, but I more often than not teach this poem as either a comparative coursework text or, more generally, as key AO4 information for any Modernist writer. I don’t know how, for example, you could prepare a class on Waugh’s A Handful of...

This guide has been written with the requirements of AQA Specification B AS Unit 1 (LITB1): Asppects of Narrative in mind, but almost all of the materials could also be used for any study of Keats’s poems, e.g. for AS or A2 coursework or unseen poetry appreciation.

Introduction

The three set poems could be studied on many levels but, for the purpose of Unit 1, it is important that students keep their focus on the way Keats has used narrative, being aware of the methods the poet has constructed this, the likely...

A Teacher’s Guide to Enduring Love by Ian McEwan »

The attached scheme of work and resources will be particularly useful to those teaching AQA Literature specification B Unit 1 Aspects of Narrative but also, I hope, to those teaching the novel elsewhere for either AS or A2 literature where the novel may appear as part of a coursework unit, as wider reading or as a specified text for The Modern Novel.

Teaching the novel has its own peculiar difficulties simply because of the size of the text and always seems to present a number of questions:

  • Should I ask the students to read the novel before...

A Guide to Thomas Hardy’s Poems | Aspects of Narrative »

Jonathan Peel | Monday October 03, 2011

Categories: Hot Entries, Poetry, Hardy, Writing, Poetry Analysis, AQA A Level, AQA A Level English Literature B, LITB1

image

The following guide would be useful for AQA LITB1, Aspects of Narrative but also for many other A level (and GCSE) units, where Hardy’s poems might be studied.

  • Neutral Tones
  • The Darkling Thrush
  • ­At Castle Boterel
  • ­The Voice
  • ­Drummer Hodge
  • ­In Church
  • ­The Oxen

To many, Hardy is a genius, worthy of the highest respect as a technician in his poetry: a poet able to move his readers deeply often by his portrayal of ordinary people and events, both rendered special by the manner of his telling; to others, his technical ability is never...

A Level English Literature | Guide to Narrative Analysis »

Although analysing a text at the level of narrative is a direct requirement of some English Literature courses, such as AQA’s LITB1, it is an analytical technique that can be quite generally applied across many texts – even non-fictional and media texts.

Narrative is a central aspect of imaginative fiction such as short-stories, the novel and many poems but it also crops up in very many everyday texts. Despite this, it remains a less than easy idea to grasp and can easily prove a challenge to even the brightest students. This guide...
