Pearson Edexcel AS and A level English Literature (2015)
In order to ensure teachers and students have opportunities to engage with more diverse texts when studying Pearson Edexcel A level English Literature, we have produced a number of coursework guides for teachers and students to use when considering their coursework text choices.
The first guide we produced was the Black British Literature guide and this has now been joined by two further guides - an LGBTQ+ guide and a British Asian guide. This shows our commitment to widening the range of texts that students can engage with, and help them to read texts where they can encounter characters and themes that may resonant with their own identities, or challenge them to think beyond their own experiences . We also want to ensure that students are being exposed to literature from a variety of British writers from different backgrounds, and are reading about contemporary issues that they can engage with and relate to.
All of the guides can be downloaded below (please login with your Edexcel online details to access the guides, login details can be obtained from your Exams Officer):
As we celebrate International Women's Day this year, we're delighted to let you know that our next coursework guide will be focused on Women Writers.
This new Diversity Guide will be coming soon, but in the meantime, we want to share the introduction for the guide that looks at the key women writers and their texts.
We’ve also created a poster to celebrate the A Level English Literature coursework guides; to showcase the writers included that can be downloaded and printed for your classroom.
