AQA New Spec English Literature Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: Context and Themes Revision 'Clock' Organiser

This excellent revision resource allows pupils to revise the key themes and contextual features of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The 'clock' is split in half, with one half focused on context and the other on key themes. All key themes and contextual headings are listed, with clear chapter numbers given for pupils' reference. Copies of the text will be required if pupils are using the template to find 'killer' quotations. This activity encourages independent revision, but also ensures that the revision is focused. Further independent reading can also be used to develop their notes. Once the activity is complete, I would encourage pupils to anticipate how these key themes may be phrased as a question and how they could apply their contextual understanding to this.
