Reviewing Extracts for English Language and Literature

Finding extracts online other than in Teaching Resources can be difficult as they are copyright and the publishers obviously want to sell the books.

Libraries are good places

Goodreads website has quotes for many authors and there are poetry websites.

Make your own vocabulary list at the vocabulary.com website for the different centuries?

Part of reviewing English texts from published Authors’ work is knowing the English Glossary of Terms (Key Stage 3 and 4) plus a few other ‘toolkit’ concepts such as Story,  Plot,  Narrator and Characters,  Genre,  Audience etc.
