Scheme of work aimed at Year 8 but equally useful/adaptable to suit other year groups, including GCSE. Central 54-slide powerpoint provides discussion and enquiry into three poems - dramatic monologues - from the Victorian age, all of which involve murder and madness - so engaging for KS3. 3 x planned homework tasks and two assessment points - the first a formative assessment with feedback flier and a summative assessment with a more detailed marksheet to grade students according to pathways. Key focus is comparison and two tables are included to help students structure their answer with an eye on GCSE English Literature essay writing skills. Stimulating, visual material and intuitive staggering of skills. Anthology booklet containing the three poems and other information is also provided.
