Welcome to CIE Literature.
As an English teacher on the international school circuit I’ve become aware of a chronic shortage of web based resources and revision materials aimed at students in international schools. This website is my little pet project to help organise my notes and analysis, while helping students make sense of it all.
I am but one man and don’t have the resources or time that some of the professional revision sites have, but hopefully my analysis will fill some of the gaps they leave for international students.
The site works best when you contribute to it, so please comment away and I will endeavour to address your concerns or improve the site in the ways highlighted. Generally I respond to comments within 24 hours, but life is a bit hectic and sometimes I get a bit behind so bear with me. However, I would encourage you to engage with other comments on a post and help each other rather than relying entirely on me.
When navigating the site, you will notice different coloured links:
– blue links lead to my poem analysis posts;
– orange links take you to resources submitted by students or other teachers;
– green links are for non-analysis posts or documents that I have uploaded to the site (essay tips, mark criteria and that sort of thing);
– red links take you away from the site to great resources found elsewhere on the web.
Follow the site on Twitter or Facebook to keep updated on new posts and developments.
Enjoy the site!
