In this three lesson mini-scheme, students will understand, analyse and evaluate the characters of Oliver, Nancy and the Artful Dodger. They will learn the story of Oliver Twist, as well as the historical context of the novel - all while having fun!
Just three lessons long, this scheme is great for breaking up long schemes of work, and offers students critical exposure to 19th century texts. There are also plenty of ways that this scheme can be extended!
From documentary clips to class debates and whiteboard work, these lessons are full of clear AfL and engaging activities, as well as suggestions for even more! The notes on the slides provide opportunities to differentiate, extend or adapt the lessons to suit your classes’ needs and boost engagement - for example by making the activities more physical!
No prior knowledge of the story is needed. These lessons are not exclusive to any one exam board, but instead aim to develop core English Literature/Language skills such as comprehension, analysis, evaluation and extended writing.
This pack includes three extracts from the novel. All worksheets are included in the powerpoint, and video URLs are clearly provided in the slide notes.
Have fun! :)
