Jekyll and Hyde - Chapter 3: Jekyll

Jekyll and Hyde - Chapter 3: Jekyll

As we are introduce to the character of Dr Henry Jekyll in Chapter 3, we look at how he is portrayed to the reader, how his emotions change as Utterson tries to discuss Mr Hyde, and then we create analytical paragraphs based on strict success criteria. Ideal preparation for KS4 students getting ready for AQA English Literature Paper 1, but adaptable for KS3 as well.
