Inspector Calls

These are a series of lessons that were delivered in both outstanding and good schools. To both high ability and low ability students all students were stretched and able to achieve the expected success criteria. This was an introduction to the Inspector calls ( with no prior knowledge of the play) and can be delivered amongst 4-5 lessons dependent on the understanding of the classes and the cohort of the kids. All lessons were marked as outstanding or good with outstanding features by SLT leaders. It is imperative however that you make these lessons your own and ensure it is student led for the best outcomes and for advanced progress. Ensure you make lessons very engaging! No student wants to learn if it is perceived as boring. The learning objectives include: the understanding of the text, the context behind the text ( Marxism and Socialism), the development of the characters and the significance of Inspector calls. This can be carried out in any order that you desire dependent on your students and where you are up to.
