Develop your students’ skills in English Literature and English Language as you study An Inspector Calls.

This Student Book offers English Literature lessons to help your classes explore the set text in depth. In parallel, English Language lessons give students the opportunity to respond to fiction and non-fiction extracts that will deepen their understanding of the play’s themes and contexts.

This practical resource is designed for in-class study, as well as exam preparation.

  • Give students a supportive route through the set text, with pre-reading, close reading and whole-text review chapters to help them understand the plot, characters, themes and contexts and analyse the writer’s methods.
  • Build writing stamina with the longer exam-style tasks at the end of each chapter.
  • Support all learners with clear plot summaries and a ‘Who’s who’ guide to the main characters.
  • Prepare for examination success with a final chapter on the Literature exam, including exam-style questions, step-by-step guidance for writing an effective response, and sample answers at different levels.
  • Practise all the AQA English Language Paper 1 and 2 question formats. Students will learn how to locate information, analyse language and structure, synthesise, critically evaluate and compare as they read texts about life in Edwardian and post-war Britain, class, marriage and the suffrage movement. They will also be given the opportunity to produce their own narrative, descriptive and argumentative writing in response to the play and its concerns.
