Reading and Writing about a Novel is a resource designed to help with the study and teaching of novels at GCSE.
Novels are a fundamental part of English Literature, and knowing how to read and write about them is vital for success in this subject. This resource provides in-depth analysis on topics like:
- Features of novels
- Plot, narrative and structure
- Setting and atmosphere
- Language and style
This resource also contains activities and self check questions that students can use to test their knowledge and see what areas they need to work on.
Developed by subject experts, these resources and teaching materials are specifically designed to meet awarding body specifications to help students prepare for exams. NEC works alongside teachers and examiners to ensure that information is accurate and up to date.
This resource is adapted from our GCSE English Literature course - which means it is designed for self-study. Therefore, it is understandable, affordable and easy-to-use, whether you’re a teacher, a home educator, or a student yourself. It can be used as a short- or long-term solution to fill gaps in knowledge.
