  • Cool-down questions – encourage detailed understanding and assessment of learning.
  • Exam-style questions – provide focus at the end of each session.

Engaging and structured write-on student worksheets enable clear student feedback.

Students learn through: racing around the cardiac system, competing in fitness challenges as their favourite superstars, experiencing arousal/ stress first hand and becoming a sponsor for a lesson!

‘It gives a ‘fresh’ way of teaching what some pupils find a very difficult theoretical element of the GCSE course. The supportive worksheets will provide the basis of written evidence of learning and act as a revision tool for pupils, or a basis for more extension work to lead on from. Pupils work on other skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership in addition to being active. Peer assessment is being used in many of the activities. I can see some of my own pupils gaining a great deal from doing some of the activities.’ – N Hannah, Assistant HoD, Examiner for AQA & Independent Reviewer.

Includes photocopiable master with site licence; electronic copies available. Orders are normally dispatched in 2-5 working days.

A thorough guide which contextualises the novel and shows real insight into each chapter. I particularly liked the social context, themes and symbols. I thought the tone of the chapter analysis was excellent as the student will feel that they are getting an in-depth idea of why characters behave in certain ways with examples from the novel. A superb resource. – S Fallon, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer (of Wuthering Heights A Level adaptation)

Thorough, useful and tailored to supporting students’ understanding, analysis and approach to the text. Furthermore, the information on Fitzgerald and relevance of his life is very useful in emphasising the need to make links and connections with the novel and author.
