Welcome to IGCSE Literature at Ecole Mondiale World School

This wiki is for all Grade 8 and Grade 9 students at IESE who wish to study for the Cambridge IGCSE Literature exams. You know what a wiki is, right? You are probably most familiar with the concept from using Wikipedia.

A wiki is an electronic way of sharing information and links quickly and easily. You are all registered on this wiki making you able to upload documents, find links, and ask questions to either myself or each other. When used regularly this wiki will be an invaluable tool for your studies. Your English teacher and Mrs Ericsson will also check in from time to time so you will have plenty of teacher support.

Cambridge IGCSE Literature is accepted by universities and employers as proof of real knowledge and understanding. Successful candidates gain lifelong skills, including the ability to:

• Read, interpret and evaluate texts through the study of literature in English;
• Develop an understanding of literal and implicit meaning, relevant contexts and of the deeper themes or attitudes that may be expressed;
• Recognise and appreciate the ways in which writers use English to achieve a range of effects;
• Present an informed, personal response to materials you have studied;
• Explore wider and universal issues, promoting better understanding of yourselves and of the world around you.

And also because Cambridge is one of the World’s best universities and your certificate will be something that you can be proud of forever!
