Transforming Texts Summary


Transforming Texts by Shaun O'Toole (Curriculum Manager and Chief A Level Examiner Itchen College, Southampton, UK)

Transforming Texts:

  • considers why language changes, and how we transform it
  • covers the key factors we need to take into account when transforming texts, including audience, register, mode, historical period, source and genre
  • explores a wide variety of texts from a range of genres and periods, from Macbeth and Sense and Sensibility to Fever Pitch and The Bill
  • offers a step-by-step guide to re-writing text; can be used as both a course text and a revision tool.

Written by an experienced teacher, author and AS and A2 examiner, Transforming Texts is an essential resource for all students of AS and A2 level English Language and English Language and Literature.
