Session 4 – Paper 2 – The Comparative Study

Session 5 – Paper 2 – Poetry

——————————————–

Plus 2 Hours of Bonus Video Content

——————————————–

The 5th Year English course preparing students for Paper 2 covers three sections: The Single Text, The Comparative and Poetry- seen and unseen.

With the single text, the focus is on Shakespeare (All higher level students must answer on Shakespeare) and on King Lear. We look at the single text question types and work on our students’ essay writing. By being strategic in our approach our students maximise their existing knowledge. Notes are also provided for all single texts.

Teaching the comparative is an area we pride ourselves in. Students are provided with a structured approach to answering this question. Students rarely have difficulty with the content of the texts. We have found that when our students are given a framework that allows them to define the various modes of comparison this resolves a lot of the difficulties surrounding the comparative. We equip our students with the sentencing they need to excel in this section.

With unseen poetry, we focus on what the examiner expects from strong answers. This allows us to concentrate on the material that students will answer on. We equip our students with the language they need to differentiate their answers. The technical understanding developed for the unseen poetry section is then made relevant to studied poetry. Notes are provided for all eight poets. We aim to cover the 4 poets that we deem most likely to be on the exam.
