An Inspector Calls Revision Workbook

A 22 page activity workbook that can be used either as a revision tool, or a resource that a unit of work could be based around. The workbook has tasks and questions that scaffold learners interpretations and learning of the characters, themes, contexts and settings of the play- so students are essentially constructing their own revision guide as they complete it. Tasks are heavily based on key lines (quotes and stage directions)from the text.

There are seven character posters in this bundle: Eric, Sheila, Arthur and Sybil Birling; Gerald Croft; Inspector Goole; and Eva Smith/Daisy Renton.

Each poster features multiple relevant quotations, linked to character traits. These traits serve as the 'point' in a PEE/PEAS/PETER style response.

The posters work equally well printed in A4 or A3, and you could even miniaturise them further to serve as individual GCSE revision resources.

The posters can be bought individually on TES but this bundle allows you to save £4. Please look at the other resources I have available (for sale and for free) and if you have downloaded one that you have found useful I would be really grateful if you could leave a quick review. Thanks!

100 Question 'An Inspector Calls' Quiz (Context, Plot and Quotes)

Included: 100 Question Quiz Answers & 100 Question Quiz Sheet

A 100 Question quiz on ‘An Inspector Calls’. Questions start with context and then progress through the play. Made for KS4. Can be used as a revision tool near exams or used during reading to consolidate knowledge. The questions are in order of the plot to avoid spoilers if used in this way! I use this quiz every lesson, particularly for my lower ability students. It has a positive effect on recall and familiarity with the play, context and quotes. I make it into a weekly challenge to get as many as possible right, with bonus points for any quotations used. Top three students are placed on the leaderboard in the classroom, which acts as a great motivator!

Great for EAL students to understand the plot without having to translate the whole text. My Spanish student wrote on the top of her quiz: “Thank-you Miss, I find these [sic] resource so helpful”.
