The Darkness Out There Literary Contexts

A whole lesson PPT that looks at the literary links between ‘The Darkness Out There’ and ‘Hansel and Gretel’ to explore literary contexts and writer’s purpose.

Students consider who fairy tales are written for, their purpose and their archetypal characters and gender roles. They use this knowledge to explore Nether Cottage and Packer’s End and the characters of Sandra, Kerry and Mrs. Rutter. They consider the perspectives that the story affords the 21st Century teen.
