English Language: 19th Century Unseen  Texts (The Fall of the House of Usher)
Two lessons based on an extract from The Fall of the House of Usher. Excellent resource for teaching the new GCSE English Language- 19th century, unseen texts.

Lesson 2: analyse key sections of the texts in groups and then write an exam response. Could easily be used over 3 or 4 lessons.
