The Teacher Guide supports both Student Books with expert suggestions from leading professionals about how you could plan and teach the two GCSE courses. These practical, ready-made resources can be drawn on in your first years of teaching the specifications, and edited and adapted to the needs of your classes.
* Plan your course with expert support. Schemes of work suggest how English Language and English Literature GCSE could be taught in one year, two years or three years. Medium-term plans give an overview of the learning in each chapter, including a clear synopsis of the genres, forms and purposes, key linguistic and literary terminology and the Assessment Objectives covered.
* Help all your students make good progress with detailed, differentiated lesson plans, worksheets and PowerPoints in fully editable formats. Extra support and extra challenge features suggest how to make the Student Book content appropriate to all your learners.
* CPD videos from Jo Heathcote and Sarah Darragh offer advice on preparing to teach the new GCSEs, whether you are a Head of Department, an English teacher, or an NQT, including guidance on supporting successful transition from KS3 and how to help students cope with the most challenging aspects of the new specifications.
