Wuthering Heights continues to be an extremely popular text for study at advanced level. The combination of a compelling plot, highly charged emotions, complexity of narrative voice and structure and the combined use of features of Gothic and Romantic literature make it an excellent text to study. Rather than offering a chapter-by chapter approach, the material assists students in thinking about the novel in the context of a wider understanding of narrative. It encourages a close focus on key aspects of form, structure and language, balanced by an awareness of the contexts of writing and reception and critical interpretations over time. Contextual and critical material is used to help students to articulate and develop their own interpretation of the text. Many of the activities model the use of evidence in supporting an argument, or reading of the text. Activities include a detailed linguistic analysis of a key passage, suitable for combined literary and linguistic study as well as the study of English Literature, a reality TV role-play exploring oppositions in the novel and opportunities for creative writing as a way of developing critical understanding of the text. Quotation and context cards can be used to help students use evidence, test their knowledge and revise the text for exams. The materials support individual study, group work and whole class work and include a range of strategies including creating visual maps and diagrams, jigsawing, presentations and a whole class simulation. There is also support for writing in exams. Includes printable pdf of the publication on CD ROM.
