Included is a lesson (1 x 55 min) analysing an extract of H G Wells classic Gothic tale ‘The Red Room’. It supports students in analysing how language creates atmosphere and tension. It contains a simple context based starter, printable book cover to aid a prediction based activity as well as a fully explained task and steps to success for the main task. There is a model analysis included and guided self and peer reflection slides also.In addition to this, there is a separate worksheet included which can aid in the understanding of language and planning of the analysis (I usually blow this up to A3!) Edit, adapt, use and enjoy!
