This cross-specification course will focus on the classroom practices that best challenge higher attainers to achieve their potential in the reading element of GCSE English Language. We will cover strategies for developing sophisticated close reading of language and structure in short texts. We will also explore how to make the most of the comparison aspect of the course, with ways to get plenty of fresh, interesting texts into the classroom.

N.B. As this is a cross-specification course, we will not be discussing specific awarding bodies or exam questions.
