Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

In this class students will get an overview of how to analyse a short extract from a dystopian science fiction novel ‘The Mazerunner’. You will be shown how to identify language features, how to comment on the effects of language and how to embed and explain quotations. These skills are essential when unwrapping unseen text.  Once you have practised these skills students will able to transfer these to any other piece of unseen prose. 

For more sessions on how to tackle Unseen Prose we recommend Victorian Literature and A Christmas Carol
