The Literature Insight section is made up of a set of supplementary literature lessons which introduce students to classic pieces of English Literature such as Hard Times, Alice in Wonderland and Huckleberry Finn.

Reading texts for the Literature insight lessons are taken from OUP Graded Readers, ensuring they are always pitched at a suitable level for your students.
