A speed dating activity designed to help pupils to consider the ways in which Adichie explores gender in her novel, Purple Hibiscus.

The resource covers:

  • Christian and Igbo atttitudes to gender.
  • Ideals of femininity and masculinity.
  • The miracle at Aoekpe.

There are four questions meaning that plenty of time can be spent in discussion during the speed dating activity.

This lesson encourages pupils to research and then explain their ideas multiple times while making notes on the other aspects of gender explored in the lesson. This helps to reinforce key knowledge and ensures they understand their topic well enough to verbalise it.
