I am tutoring a student doing GCSE AQA English Lit and Language. She has just completed her controlled assessment for GCSE Lit where she has been asked to write about Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet. My issue is...Is this allowed? I thought, from looking through the spec, that she'd have to compare a Shakespeare text to one of the titles from the lit heritage (e.g. Macbeth to Animal Farm or whatever). Am I right or is what her teacher's done Ok? Sorry to be vague...I teach GCSE English myself but we only run the English Language spec.
