A series of A Level lessons on Wilde’s ‘Dorian Gray’ including the quotations and analysis from the text, covering such themes as Influence/gothic/Art and Aesthetics/doubles, dopplegangers and splitting/hereditry/flowers, colour and decadence/ context/women and gender. Some of these themes may be in the first two chapters or may be in subsequent chapters. Some lessons also include essay frameworks. This was written for the Edexcel new spec but is generic enough for any A level course.
This is a unit of activities I produced for year 6 but would equally work well for year 7. It is a fantastic book dealing with very current issues to do with the environment and community. A great basis for discussion of other topics. Lots of activities included such as writing tasks: letters, reports, diaries, etc.
Two more unseen poetry questions with paired love poems and titles for students to work on. Poems chosen include Mary Wroth and Herbert from the Renaissance and D.H Lawrence and E.E.Cummings from the modern period.
This is a collection of comparative essay plans which I put together for the teaching of Edexcel A level spec. They cover deviant sexuality, heroes and villains, violence, doubles, fear and threat and power. I have another bundle with further plans. Some are perhaps too detailed to just give out to a class but others are for students to develop.
Support your students with this bundle of essay plans comparing both Dracula and Dorian Gray. These presentations cover the essays areas of: concealment, supernatural settings, good and evil and gothic elements. Some plans have skeleton outlines for students to fill in and others have both skeleton outlines and the teacher ideas to support further.
Three essay titles are included in this bundle covering women as victims, self-love, jealousy and love being transformed into hate. A powerpoint is also included covering Shakespeare's heroines looking at the contexts.
This is a fun way to revise the play at the end of the term. The first letter of every answer is part of a title of a well-known Christmas Carol. So for additional points, at the end of each round, the first team to work out the Christmas Carol could have an extra 5 points.
