Originally designed for KS3, this booklet contains 7 tasks designed around building up basic skills and themed on dystopian fiction. This contains the booklet as PDF and editable word document.
The booklet includes an introduction to dystopican fiction in which students are given an overview of a range of dystopian novels from across the last century and explore the conventions/define the genre, extracts from The Hunger Games and Divergent in order to explore how characters are presented, how thoughts and feelings are presented (inference skills) and writer's use of language features to convey setting.
There are literacy activities on spelling and developing vocab as well as a structured creative writing piece based on setting (writing from an image - which ties into the new GCSE English Language Paper 1 Question 5).
The final task is around the marketing of dystopian novels and films and designing their own marketing in order to convey the key themes/ideas of their own writing or an existing novel through the connotations of colour/images etc...
The booklet could be used in class as additional activities to support a study of dystopian fiction, as a homework booklet or for cover.
Space in the booklet for all work to be completed if desired.
