Teaching the Comparative Prose Component for Edexcel A Level

Why should you attend? 

The Edexcel Comparative Prose component is proving to be a very rewarding, but challenging, element of this specification. Comparing two substantial texts in an hour requires knowledge, selection and careful planning. The course will explore ways of teaching the two chosen texts in relation to each other and preparing students for writing successfully in the exam. It will offer strategies that are adaptable to whichever thematic area you have chosen. 

What will the course cover?

  • Approaches to the teaching of the two novels – how to encourage comparative thinking.
  • Ways of developing students’ preparedness for the exam over the two years of the course.
  • Exploring examination writing and the lessons it offers about what to teach your students and how.
  • Revision strategies, to gear students up for the exam. 

Please let us know when booking which thematic area and texts you are/will be teaching.
