Darwinism in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

(4)
A ‘masterclass’ revision lesson on the importance of understanding Darwin and his influences/impact on Victorian society in relation to descriptions of Hyde. Made for a high ability top set in mind. Students must have solid foundational knowledge of the text in order for this to be useful. Students should come away with a detailed revision poster based on the questions/discussions/information given. There is also a model ‘Grade 9’ response at the end that could be picked apart. I have provided links in the notes of the powerpoints for source materials - I highly recommend reading them first if your own knowledge on the topic isn’t vast!

Using Winslow Homer’s The Gulf Stream as a stimulus, students build on both descriptive skills and narrative creation. I have used with both high ability and a mixed set, worked a treat for each. I suggest printing off a colour copy of the painting on A4, one between two, so they can really get up close and look at detail. Could be edited to include exam board specific mark scheme.
