I taught this lesson as a double, so there is plenty of material in here for a lively discussion about the importance of the themes and characters in 'Blood Brothers'. This lesson focuses on the question: who is responsible for the deaths of Mickey and Eddie? Students are asked to:
-Rank characters in order of responsibility, and discuss their opinionS
-Evaluate the importance of thematic and contextual factors, including: poverty, class, fate, superstition, nature and nurture.
- Consolidate their knowledge on a worksheet and reflect on their final opinion.
