I created this chapter by chapter, reading and comprehension quiz to monitor and assess my sixth form students’ reading and understanding of this OCR ‘Comparative and Contextual Study’ set text. Each week they were assigned 3-4 chapters to read for homework and answer the questions in preparation for SA/PA in class the following week.
Each of the 27 chapters has approximately 10 chronological questions with answers (some with key quotes as evidence - page references are for the Penguin Classics 1993 edition of the text).
A collection of 28 1hr 15min lessons aimed at top set year 10 students who are preparing for the Dr jekyll and Mr Hyde AQA English Literature examination.
Critical theories explored:
Sigmund Freud’s Uncanny
Sigmund Freud’s concept of the ID, Superego and Ego.
Simone De Beauvoir’s Second Sex Theory
Helene Cixous’ feminist theory
mock assessments and extracts are also included.
Two separate recommended reading lists (year 7 and year 8) encouraging a love of reading through promoting topical reads and fiction linked to SoWs throughout the year. These reading lists will be set as homework throughout the academic year where we are asking students to read at least one text each half term.

The activities alternate between spelling tests, vocabulary/root word activities and grammar tests. A teacher answer booklet is also included.
