English GCSE Romeo & Juliet Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

This one-day course will break down this daunting text into easily comprehensible chunks. Students will gain an understanding of the social, cultural and historical context in which Romeo & Juliet was written in order to better appreciate the motivations behind Shakespeare’s writings and the messages he was trying to convey to his audience. Our tutor will guide students through the key scenes, characters and themes, refreshing their knowledge and deepening their understanding of the text. Together, students will explore how the plot, characterisation and setting combine to create a particular effect on the audience. Students will develop their ability to critically evaluate scenes and critically analyse language, and will leave with increased confidence in their ability to make informed personal responses to the text. The day will end with an essay writing workshop which will teach students how to plan, structure and write essays in a coherent and sophisticated manner.

Learners are supported beyond the course through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially designed and created to supplement the learning experience. Students will leave the course with a deeper understanding of Romeo & Juliet and with the skills and material they need to excel in this section of the course.

Suitable for:

  • Year 10 students
  • Year 11 students
  • Students who have studied all or most of the text
  • Students who haven't started learning Macbeth yet
  • Foundation tier students
