BBC Bitesize: GCSE English Literature

English teachers and lovers of English prose, drama, and poetry will find much to appreciate with this English Literature resource. Hosted by BBC Bitesize, the site boasts invaluable resources for understanding the various elements of many classic works of literature, all in accordance with the GCSE, a qualifying exam for secondary education students in England, Northern Ireland, and Wales. Selecting any of the topics (19th-century prose, Modern prose and drama, Poetry, Shakespeare, Writing and analyzing literature) opens to a list of titles (A Christmas Carol, Frankenstein, Great Expectations, etc.), each flanked by resources that include a Plot summary, Characters, Themes, Form, structure, and language, and a Sample exam question. Recently updated, Bitesize English Literature now includes Class Clips: three- to five- minute video productions that address key elements of the work, which can help students learn basic elements of literature in an entertaining context. While some of these resources are tailored particularly toward the British educational system, English literature teachers in any country will find a wealth of background information and materials for class presentations here.
