AS/A Level English Language and Literature
Teaching: Sep 2015
Our AS/A level English Language and Literature specification promotes the integrated study of English language and English literature.
It enables learners to develop intellectual maturity through exploring a range of literary and non-literary texts, including our English Language and Literature Poetry Pre-1914 Anthology.
Through their reading, learners have the opportunity develop the skills required to interrogate texts, be critically reflective, consider other viewpoints, be independent, make connections across a range of texts and to understand and evaluate the effects of a variety of contexts.
