This seven week (42 lesson) scheme of work is designed for the Edexcel A Level English Literature course and studies A Streetcar Named Desire for Component 1. This scheme of work is assessed differently at AS than A2 – at students are assessed on AO5 at AS but not at A2. Students will complete an in-depth investigation of form, language, structure and stagecraft of the play. This scheme of work is designed to be delivered after students have completed a first reading of Streetcar. Students must also undertake an investigation of relevant historical, social, cultural and political contexts which influence and are significant in the reading of the play. Students are also directed to engage with a range of literary criticisms and alternative interpretations of the play. The scheme of work is a comprehensive plan which initially takes a scene-by-scene approach to the play, then directs students to analyse the play through elements of drama. The scheme is accompanied by a comprehensive PowerPoint and additional resources, reading materials and activities. It also includes multiple practice questions and assessment materials.
