For Romeo and Juliet, I do not understand the plot or nothing at all and I am up to act 3, please may you give me support through this?
I'm glad I could be at your service When I did my GCSE english literature I did a christmas carol, inspector calls and Macbeth as well as the poetry anthology and my exam board was edexcel. Unfortunately I can't fully help you on Romeo and Juliet since I have not done it but you can use litcharts and shmoop which are really good websites that help you to understand texts. Also type into youtube Mr Bruff he has videos for Romeo and Juliet as well as for poetry anthology which are really good. For memorising texts, what I did was make a grid and section it out into summary of acts/chapters, themes, quotes and etc. Once making it I tried to fill it out without using any texts, since with the new 9-1 GCSE your not allowed them. I then checked over it and saw where I went wrong, after I made another grid and using the text I filled it in,I then stuck in on my wall and would often read it to help it soak up in my brain. I would also print out a plain grid and see how much i can fill in from memory. This will help you to group quotes to themes as well as acts/chapters. Hope this helps .
