English Literature Revision Resource

We’ve produced a new revision resource packed with informative TV and radio clips to help your students revise for their English Literature GCSE.

The printable e-booklet contains links to a range of TV and radio resources, covering some of the common set texts across the major exam boards – including Shakespeare, 19th Century Literature and Modern Texts.

There is a varied selection of clips exploring context, theme and characters. Each resource lasts between one minute to one hour – making them ideal for using in the classroom, watching at home, or listening to on the go.

To play and share clips, you will need to log in or register with an ERA account. Find out more below.
