I believe every teacher could use these posters as a display in their classrooms (or even staff rooms) these days. I hope they encourage students to ask questions and create positive conversations.

The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught.

Pride and Prejudice - Elizabeth and Darcy's Relationship Graph Task!

Pride and Prejudice - Elizabeth and Darcy's Relationship Graph Task!

This interesting task provides students with an opportunity to track Elizabeth and Darcy's relationship throughout 'Pride and Prejudice.' Students first rate Elizabeth and Darcy's feelings for one another at different points in the text on a 1-10 scale, plotting their rating on the graph. They then justify the rating with an explanation and textual evidence, in the table beneath. It's great for helping them to see how the relationship develops over the course of the text, and also offers a novel cross-curricular link with maths. Shameless plug - if you like this resource, please take a look at my paid 'Pride and Prejudice' resources, available as single lessons or in the lesson bundle. Thanks!
