The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde SOW (Low Ability and GCSE Friendly)

The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde SOW (Low Ability and GCSE Friendly)

The premise of this SOW is to have frequent quizzes and comprehension questions to check understanding. Every lesson has a plenary quiz at the end to check comprehension and knowledge of the characters and the storyline. There are also recaps of particular terms like pathetic fallacy, narrative, gothic and narrator. The first two weeks are dedicated to a simplified version of contextual knowledge. I chose to omit Freud and the Id, Superego and Ego because it is designed for low ability. But you can add and alter the SOW and alter the fortnightly quizzes to add questions and reteach sheets on this if you wish. The activities are designed to be for low ability in the sense that they are given sentence starters whenever they do discussion pair work and they also do bingo cards for chapter reading. Audiobooks are attached to the reading parts. There is an assessment right at the end of the unit on whether or not Mr Hyde is a frightening character. Bonus: there are fortnightly quizzes with answers and reteach sheets, with time allocated in the SOW to have reflection and review of learning time.
