Explanation text template - How to operate a UFO

Pride and Prejudice - Understanding the Plot!

Pride and Prejudice - Understanding the Plot!

In this engaging and informative lesson, students are enabled to demonstrate a secure understanding of the narrative structure within Jane Austen’s 'Pride and Prejudice.' In particular, students gain a deeper understanding of the web of relationships and quarrels involving the Bennets, Bingleys, and Darcys (amongst others) through sequencing, interpreting, and summarising key plot events. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which students learn through: - Playing a fun group quiz to secure their understanding of key plot elements; - Sequencing the events of the text and explaining what happens in each chapter; - Summarising the events of the text through a storyboard; - Recreating the ending of the text, relying upon their in-depth understanding of plot and characters; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Plot event cards for the card sorting activity; - Storyboard template - Writing to describe aid; - Comprehensive lesson plan. There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with both younger and older (up to A Level) students. All images are licensed for commercial use, and image rights are listed on the last page of the presentation.
