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.

A bundle is a package of resources grouped together to teach a particular topic, or a series of lessons, in one place.
A unit of work for Adichie's Purple Hibiscus including lessons on: * Context * Structure * Plot * Narration * The theme of religion * The theme of gender * The theme of oppression Activities include highly scaffolded group work and research questions ideal for challenging higher ability students while also scaffolding weaker students towards the appropriate critical thinking skills. The knowledge organiser is designed to support pupils' linguistic and contextual knowledge. Each lesson begins with questions which use the testing effect to improve pupils' knowledge of the novel and draw their attention to the more important elements of the text. I have also included a slide on the PowerPoints which references the key vocabulary from the knowledge organiser that is most appropriate for that lesson.
