Crafting a Gothic Character: Dracula

Included is a previous observation lesson (2 x 55 mins) I created and adapted over the last couple of years. It has been taught to my set 1 year 8 students this year but has previously also been used for set 2. It includes a PPT which contains all activities and clearly differentiated steps to success. There is also an extract of Bram Stoker’s classic Gothic tale Dracula as well as a link to a short clip of a film interpretation of Dracula. The outcome is for students to plan, draft and craft their own Gothic characters, using Dracula as their inspiration. There are challenge (or superstar) questions throughout to stretch all students. Edit, adapt, use and enjoy!
