Here at Eduqas we are committed to inclusivity and we would like to add a more diverse range of texts to our GCSE English Literature specification. These texts should reflect the cultural diversity that makes up our rich heritage and offer contemporary themes and issues that candidates can engage with. We would like them to appeal to a wide cross-section of learners from different cultural and social backgrounds.
The texts that are chosen will be supported by a range of resources including specimen examination questions, Knowledge Organisers and teaching support.
There are only certain areas of the specification where we could widen the text choice to include a more culturally diverse range of texts. We have decided to add more texts to the post 1914 prose and drama section. To that end we would like to ask you, as classroom practitioners, to have your say. What texts would you like to see within this component? What has worked within your classrooms? The texts must be written post 1914, celebrate diversity, be suitable in challenge for a GCSE audience and be written by an author from the British Isles. We welcome your feedback and your views.
