Text resources

“If you show someone something you've written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, ‘When you’re ready’." 

David Mitchell
On the attached areas of the site (accessible from the icons below) are a number of pages devoted to a range of texts that are frequently studied as part of the program. 

It goes without saying that this list could be very long indeed, and so will evolve over time.  You will be able to find here resources and suggested lesson activities for use in the classroom - remembering that they are suggestions put forward by the authors of this site, rather than any definitive guide to the works, and certainly nothing 'officially stamped' by the IBO.  We hope that you will find them relevant and useful, however, and of course welcome feedback, suggestions or additions, which you can make at the bottom of any page.
