A question for English Lit teachers

Discussion in 'Secondary' started by Yogs, Jan 21, 2012.

  1. I was chatting with my son about how his GCSEs are going. He has just finished the first term of his second year of GCSE Eng Lit, apparently so far they have only read one book, A KestrelFor A Knave'. I am a little shocked at how little reading they have done so far. When I took my GCSEs I remember reading at least 5 set texts including Dickins and Shakespeare. Is his experience typical of the subject ?
  2. Yep! Students will usually have read a Shakespeare, another drama, one prose text and a collection of poetry over a two year course. If you assume he did the Shakespeare and other play in Y10 then that leaves only the poetry to do!
